Calvary Chapel High School was an amazing school for my daughter. She needed the small class size and the christian foundation. My daughter excelled at all sports and at academics because of the caring and wonderful people at Calvary. Thank you to all the teachers, ministers, and administrators that made my daughters experience in high school and beyond so rewarding.

My child has been attending MCA/CCJH since Kindergarten and has had a very positive experience at this school. All the teachers are very caring, and developing a Christ-like young adult is at the center of the educational focus. My child was recently assessed for entrance into public high school and has been placed in every honors class available at the school. I cannot say enough positive things about the time proven curriculum and practices used to teach fundamental concepts and foundational skills at the elementary level at this school. Although History, Science, Writing, and other curricula seem to change over the years, the school remains committed to the A Beka reading system which has stood the test of time and has taught millions of children to read before 1st grade. Thank you Calvary for all of your dedication to our student!

Strong Christian world view. God centered staff. Limited space and resources. Mostly solid sports programs. Low bar set for teacher requirements.

My son is currently attending the full day kindergarten program at Maranatha Christian Academy. He has been attending MCA since September 2005. He is able to read books now! The school also introduces a new Bible verse each week for the student to memorize and to ecourage to live by. I'm torn though to put my son in 1st grade at MCA (just for vicinity purposes).

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

Oops! We currently do not have any student information for this school. We rely on the state Department of Education, the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), and in some cases school administrators such as registrars and principals for this data.
