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 our preschool program is licensed under the Ministry of Education as well under the Child Care and Early Years 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 Christian community, 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 we built our permanent home in Franktown. Further expansion in 2011 included a Preschool and a subsequent expansion added 3 new classrooms in 2018. We are now pleased to offer a Preschool program, a program for school-aged children from Junior Kindergarten to grade 8 and a high school program up to grade 12.
