Secondary

What an invigorating and sobering time we live in. As we stand on the cusp of amazing opportunities and a vast array of challenges; it is such a blessing to be reminded of God’s mercy and grace, as well a renewed realization of our purpose and vision as Christian families. It is essential that the task and privilege of establishing a Christian worldview in the lives of young people is taken seriously and executed efficiently. It is crucial that they feel nurtured, accepted, and secure as they are led to the Truth. At CCCS, it is our purpose to minister to your child and family. We intend to do this through:

  • Spiritual study and mentorship

  • Building a strong academic foundation and knowledge base

  • Helping students to function well socially and to be aware of the culture around them

  • Giving them the opportunity to learn the lessons offered through competitive athletics

  • Assisting them in discovering and honing their talents through the fine arts and other extracurricular programs

Most importantly, we desire to give the students the opportunity to fall in love with Christ, and to honor His plan for their lives. After all, the Bible teaches us that we profit nothing by gaining the whole world and losing our soul.

We would enjoy the opportunity to meet you and tell you more about Calvary Chapel Christian School. For more information, please call the CCCS office at 702-248-8879. Thank you for your time and consideration.

Bible instruction is considered part of our core curriculum, and is given priority as the central focus of our school. Also, there is emphasis on Community Outreach and Missions for every student. Chapel is normally held weekly, and consists of student-led Worship and excellent teaching by guest speakers or staff.

We offer an award winning athletic program, including Football, Volleyball, Track, Basketball, Softball and Baseball. Physical Education is a required part of the program for each student.

One local vendor noted that, “We can immediately recognize CCCS school kids from students at any other school; especially the teenagers. CCCS teenagers are so polite and friendly and extremely well mannered compared to any other group of kids.”

We are excited to meet you and share more about Calvary Chapel Christian School. Please contact the school office at 702-248-8879, to schedule a tour.

In selecting classroom textbooks, both Christian and secular publishers are considered. It is recognized that Christian publishers provide a distinctive Christian perspective, especially needed in the social and physical science areas that have been so strongly influenced by humanistic philosophy.

Publishers currently being used include ABEKA, Bob Jones, Positive Action, Saxon, McDougal Littell, Write Source, and Concordia. The NIV Bible is used in the elementary grades and the New King James Bible is use in grades 6-12. Trade books used in the reading and literature programs may not necessarily be written by Christian authors, but are taught from a Christian perspective.

Course of Study
CCCS provides a graded course of study for grades K through 12. Provisions are made for periodic evaluation of courses of study and for revision in order to keep pace with societal and educational change. Curriculum development reflects CCCS statements of philosophy and purpose, and is based on reliable findings from the sciences dealing with child growth and development, and learning. The methods of instruction are those which promote inductive learning through exploration and discovery, inquiry and interpretation, critical thinking and creativity. The goal of the entire school effort is to achieve proper and adequate development of the students in terms of academic learning, spiritual growth, and healthy social and physical performance.
