At Calvary Christian Academy, we aim to develop children of good character. We adhere to a Christian-based belief system that values attitude, effort and character over aptitude, ability and talent. At Calvary Christian Academy, we believe that children need to develop cognitively, physically, emotionally, socially and spiritually. Christian virtues, morals, values and ethics are taught and encouraged by our teachers, staff and volunteers.
CCA is a private school registered with the Ontario Ministry of Education and licensed under the Day Nurseries Act. The Academy is a multi-denominational school and is not affiliated with one particular church. We are a non-profit corporation and a registered charitable organization.
The academy is governed by a board of directors elected from the parents at the school, by the parents. The academy has a constitution and by-laws.
Calvary Christian Academy first opened its doors in 1997 to six kindergarten children. Since then, we have grown steadily. For the first three years, the school was located in the basement of the Calvary Pentecostal Church in Carleton Place. In 2001, the school was moved to our permanent home in Franktown. Further expansion in 2011 included a Preschool. We are now pleased to offer both a Preschool program and a program for school-aged children from Junior Kindergarten to grade 8.
Eight years ago we were prayerfully considering where to send our son for his education. Happily, we found Calvary Christian Academy and have never looked back! Our son is now in grade six and our daughter is in grade four. We all love this school! As parents, we know that the school is like an extension of our home. What we teach in our home is being reinforced at school. Our children are being nurtured in their faith in a safe and loving environment. Our children love to come to school! Imagine….even an eleven year old boy! CCA is outstanding in academics, the arts and athletics. But aside from all this, our kids quite simply feel accepted and loved by the staff. To us, this is so valuable as we look to equip our children for the upcoming teen years.
