Statement of Faith

The following is the foundation of beliefs on which Calvary Church, and therefore Calvary Classical Academy, is based.

They are also the key elements of Protestant Christianity that will be unapologetically taught in various ways through all grade levels. The substance of these statements are considered primary doctrine in Calvary Classical Academy. Secondary or fringe issues will not be presented as primary doctrine. When these types of topics arise, they will be referred back to the family and local churches for final authority (see Secondary Doctrine Policy).

Marriage

Calvary Classical Academy stands firmly upon truth claims and moral foundations of Christianity. This includes, but is not limited to, the biblical definition of marriage, the attendant boundaries of sexuality and moral conduct, and the clear biblical teaching that gender is both sacred and established by God’s design. Parents or the legal guardians, who choose to enroll their children at Calvary Classical Academy, are agreeing to support these and other basic biblical values derived from historical Christianity and the relevant Christian positions embraced by Calvary Community Church, under whose authority this academy rests. Parents understand and agree that Calvary Classical Academy will teach these principles and biblical values.

In addition, the Advisory Board urges parents to recognize their scriptural responsibility (Deuteronomy 6:1–9, Psalm 78:5, 6, Proverbs 22:6) to provide their children with a teaching consistent with the Biblical approach, as the classical model of education does, and to understand that the primary responsibility for this task rests with the parents (Ephesians 6:4). Calvary Classical Academy was founded and continues to operate upon biblical values and the desire and commitment for Bible-believing Christian parents to enroll their children in an intentionally Classical and Christian environment. Calvary Classical also accepts admission for students from any family who, despite their religious background or beliefs, is willing to support Calvary Classical Academy’s philosophy of Classical Christian education, student conduct requirements, and the school’s above-stated positions and who is willing to allow their children to be educated and influenced in an intentionally Christian environment. Continued enrollment at Calvary Classical is contingent upon this same understanding and support.

Secondary Doctrine

This policy applies to all Calvary Classical teachers in their capacity as teachers at Calvary Classical Academy.

Secondary Doctrine: Doctrinal issues which are not addressed in the Calvary Classical Academy Statement of Faith.

  • Classroom discussion of secondary doctrine should be on an informative, non-partisan level. Teachers will be careful not to speak to the students in a manner that would cause offense to the parents.
  • Presentation of all sides of an issue is encouraged.
  • The teacher will encourage the students to follow up any questions they have with their parents and pastor.
Governance

Calvary Classical Academy Advisory Council and the administration are planning and praying toward further growth of the school, both in facilities and the scope of the program, as more families become convinced of the necessity and advantages of a classical, Christ-centered education. Calvary Classical Academy is governed by the Word of God, as understood and applied by the school’s Advisory Council and administration. The Advisory Council is under the authority of the Elders of Calvary Community Church.
