Calvin’s academic success is excellent—achieving a 23.9 composite ACT score this past year—the highest among area Christian schools. 96% of our 2013 graduating class are continuing their education in college. And, almost all staff have advanced degrees or are pursuing advanced degrees.
This year Calvin Christian High School (CCHS) is excited to launch a 1:1 laptop initiative—allowing students to gain 21st Century digital media literacy and to connect and collaborate both on campus and across the globe in meaningful projects. Calvin’s excellent Educational Support Services strives to meet the needs of all students.
We are blessed with a student population of 362 this year; 21 of those students are international students from China, Taiwan and South Korea. Our international club offers a chance for American and International students to fellowship and learn from one another. In addition, the Across the Globe team, which serves locally as well as takes a trip to Africa each year, plans to travel to Guatemala in December. In addition to international travel opportunities, students have opportunities to travel domestically too. This year the music program will tour in New York City and a group of students is hoping to attend the Close Up program in Washington DC.
We are committed to walk with all students as they discover the gifts that God has given them, and to challenge them to use these gifts to serve the world now and always. At Calvin Christian we encourage students’ spiritual growth through seamless faith integration in each content area, through meaningful and formative worship in chapel, and through service projects that not only offer service to the larger world but also from our students to be servants of Christ. Teachers challenge students academically by using 21st century teaching pedagogies and differentiating instruction to help all students grow to their full potential.
In the past four years the Calvin athletic teams have achieved 31 conference championships, 5 state championships, and 64 students have achieved the status of All-State. Calvin Christian coaches and teams focus on growing spiritually and giving all the glory to God.
Robust Programming, Leadership & Service Opportunities
Calvin has an exceptional drama program, which produces two excellent shows each year. The band, choir and orchestra always receive top ratings at competitions. The student council provides leadership in fundraising, welcoming new students, and in leading chapels. Calvin also gives students regular opportunities to get involved in service projects at its Student Life Center during Spiritual Encouragement Week — where meaningful chapels help students grow in their faith.
Celebrating 50 Years
Calvin Christian High School opened its doors to students in 1964. God has blessed CCHS with a faithful, dedicated staff who have prepared over 6,500 alumni for lives of service. We continue with our goal to love and care for all students and to equip them with the skills and knowledge that they will need to be used by their Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and to serve people across the globe.
