CCA Secondary School
Transcript of CCA Secondary School
The Lord has blessed CCA tremendously over the years and we continue to see His hand on this school ministry. We are prepared to move forward as we continue to pursue excellence
In September 2015 Calvary Christian Academy (CCA) will begin a new venture as it opens it’s doors to a secondary school. This secondary institution will serve as an extension of the academy building on the vision and practices that have made CCA a success. The school will scale in its development starting with a Grade 9 program in September 2014 and then progressively adding grades 10, 11 and 12 in subsequent years. Over the next year, board members, parents, staff and students will play an integral role in developing the framework for establishing the CCA secondary school. We will seek to collaborate with those who have made the CCA primary school a success in developing all aspects of the secondary school from administrative practices to extra-curricular programs.
As a secondary institution our mission at CCA is to provide an innovative and dynamic learning environment that provides all students with multiple opportunities for success and self-actualization. We will take a holistic approach to the development of each student as a “whole person” challenging them and nurturing them intellectually, physically, emotionally, psychologically, socially and spiritually. Our goal is to develop our students into independent and capable young adults with a desire to serve the Lord and others by providing them with an education rooted in core Christian values. We will pursue every avenue to ensure that our students are well equipped to navigate the challenges of tertiary study and vocational choice.
Evaluate the interest in a CCA Secondary School by way of qualitative and quantitative data collection.
Seek staff and volunteers to assist in developing a framework for a CCA Secondary School.
Develop a financial strategy and gather the resources needed to establish a Grade 9 academic program
We believe that an exceptional education is inspired, innovative and immersed in a Biblical identity. We believe that an exceptional learning community looks to produce and engage with culture. It does so by encouraging its students to be active in their surrounding communities – directly applying the skills taught in the classroom to real-world scenarios. Through the use of Blended Learning and Project Based Learning (PBL) we will look to create an atmosphere that incorporates all of these principles. Using these teaching practices, CCA will foster an environment of support and collaboration by regularly bringing students from different grades together into one classroom. A maximum of 15 students per grade will be enrolled at CCA Secondary School to ensure that this inter-grade learning environment is done effectively. Given this unique learning environment students who enroll in CCA Secondary School will need to demonstrate a sound ability to learn independently, to manage a rigorous academic schedule and to engage in high order thinking.
Create a framework that will outline our strategy to successfully scale the development of a CCA Secondary School from Grades 9-12 over the next 4 years.
Finance and provide a seminar style Grade 9 classroom equipped with technological resources at a 1:1 ratio.
Pass the Ministry of Education inspection by ensuring that the CCA Secondary School meets all of their administrative and curriculum guidelines.

Our vision for a CCA secondary school is to create an innovative, multi-faceted, dynamic and technology-rich learning environment that will provide every student with the opportunity for success, self-discovery and leadership. We will look to accomplish this by developing high-quality, Christian-based educational programming that is accredited with the Ministry of Education. We will do this by collaborating with other Christian secondary schools that have experienced success in program development, by developing a Servant Leadership Program and a Cooperative Education Program and by building extra-curricular activities.

The start-up budget outlines the necessary staff and resources needed to prepare for the September 2014 launch. It is important to note that the facility expense is left out of the budget details. The budget concludes with a final summary of the projected net profit accumulated by 2017. This profit will allow the development team to explore all facility options in preparation for expansion.

As an established Christian Academy for over 15 years, the CCA community understands the importance and value of a multidimensional Christian education. CCA documents this belief in their Statement of Faith - “We believe that children are best served by Calvary Christian Academy if there is a consistency between what is taught at home, in church and at school” (2013).
To ensure effective growth and progression, students will be encouraged to assist with the creation of further clubs and programs as apart of the servant leadership program.
