Our Foundation & Founding
The goal and foundation of Calvary Bible Academy are found in a Christ-centered philosophy aimed at developing the total child. The philosophy of humanism, which denies God, the Bible, and morality, has had an increasing influence on many public and private schools. The wise and caring parent now has an alternative through Christian Education. The curriculum, methods, and discipline used in Calvary Bible Academy are designed to build character and maintain a high academic standard. We have built-in incentives to instill Godly character, integrity, and a quality education into the lives of our students. Calvary Bible Academy has stayed true to these principles since it’s founding in 1981.
Our purpose here is to establish and maintain a firm and meaningful relationship with each family. Our goal is to meet the mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being of our students and their families. This information will help you to determine if Calvary Bible Academy is right for you and your family.
The desire of Calvary Bible Academy is to reach families and help Christian parents to train their child for Christ. To reach the desired results of a quality Christian education there must be a thoughtful understanding between three parties: the family seeking to enter a child in CBA, the Academy, and the local church.

Our Five Laws of Learning
1. Integrating Biblical Philosophy With Education. The pupil must be placed on a level of the curriculum where he can best perform. Level acknowledges that all students are different. "So we, being many, . . . Having gifts differing according to the grace that is given to us . . ." (Romans 12:5-6)
2. The pupil must set reasonable and appropriate goals which he can be expected to achieve in a reasonable and prescribed period of time. Goals reflect good judgment. "For which of you . . . sitteth not down first, and counteth the cost. . . ." (Luke 14:18)
3. The pupil must receive motivation through encouragement and support and achieve control through guidance and discipline in order to assimilate, use, and experience the educational material. Motivation is that inner desire prompted by the concerned supervisor/teacher. "Whatsoever ye do, do it heartily as to the Lord. . ." (Colossians 3:23) Control acknowledges the necessity = for discipline, guidance, and responsible leadership. "Train up a child in the way he should go. . . ." (Proverbs 22:6)
4. The pupil’s learning must have appropriate measurement applied to the results. Measurement of results relates to accountability. "For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall much be required. . . ." (Luke 12:48)
5. The pupil’s learning must receive recognition and reward for its value, effort, and significance. The reward is the proper recognition for the student’s effort. "Reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press toward the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus." (Philippians 3:13-14)
