Our Mission and Philosophy
Our Mission Statement
Calvary Baptist Academy, a ministry of Calvary Baptist Church, exists for the purpose of serving Christian families by assisting them with the education of their children, emphasizing a Biblical worldview and academic excellence, in order to prepare students for college, and for Christ-like living.
God, by His grace, has permitted the establishment of Calvary Baptist Academy. The purpose of the Academy is to educate young people of this and future generations in a Christian atmosphere with a Bible-based curriculum.
The School recognizes the Biblical teaching that children are a heritage of the Lord and are to be treated as His special treasures. The family is God’s chosen institution for raising children. It is to serve as a living model of the relationship between Christ and the Church. Therefore, the school’s goals are pursued in conjunction with the student’s family and Calvary Baptist Church.
It is the ardent desire of those involved in this process to produce exemplary, Christian young people who are living testimonies of God’s grace and are willing to serve Him in whatever capacity to which they may be called.
The School seeks to foster and maintain unity in the body of Christ by teaching the essentials of Biblical faith and doctrine that are held in common by the members of Calvary Baptist Church, and specifically the families in CBA. Therefore, we accept the significant responsibility of assisting parents in the education of their children. The basis of this responsibility is teaching all truth as God’s truth. Therefore, our key textbook is the Word of Truth, the Bible.
The academic program is designed to provide students with the best possible program of studies. Emphasis is placed on the mastery of the fundamentals necessary for satisfactorily achieving a quality education. Stress is placed not only on the acquisition of facts and concepts, but also on the development and exercise of the powers of reasoning. Biblical discipline is training in order to bring about a sound mind. Godly discipline will involve correction with an attitude of love. The teacher is the authority in the classroom and thereby administers discipline fairly, firmly and in love. It is our desire that this kind of discipline will encourage students to be self-disciplined.
We are dedicated to the personal conviction that the implementation of a sound Biblical philosophy of education is the only means and hope for the effective training of soldiers of the Cross. We desire to produce Christian citizens who are loyal, patriotic and culturally engaging.
Attendance at this school is a privilege and not a right. Calvary Baptist Academy will not retain any student whose attitude, academic performance or actions are not in harmony with school policies. Calvary Baptist Academy expects full cooperation from both parents and students in its educational and disciplinary policies.
Statement of Non-Discrimination of Students
Calvary Baptist Academy admits students of any race, color, national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
