Calvary Christian Academy

We aim to graduate young men and women who think clearly and listen carefully with discernment and understanding; who reason persuasively and articulate precisely; who are capable of evaluating their entire range of experience in the light of the Scriptures; and who do so with eagerness in joyful submission to God. We desire them to recognize cultural influences as distinct from biblical, and to be un-swayed towards evil by the former. We aim to find them well prepared in all situations, possessing both information and the knowledge of how to use it. We desire they be socially graceful and spiritually gracious; equipped with and understanding the tools of learning; desiring to grow in understanding, yet fully realizing the limitations and foolishness of the wisdom of this world. We desire they have a heart for the lost and the courage to seek to dissuade those who are stumbling towards destruction; that they distinguish real religion from religion in form only; and that they possess the former, knowing and loving the Lord Jesus Christ. And all these we desire them to possess with humility and gratitude to God.

Philosophy statement: At Baby Boot Camp,we believe that every child learns within the context of relationships and through playful interactions within their environment. Children use their five senses by exploring the world around them through repetition and exposure to new things such as language, words and conversation. Each child, though, develops at his/her own rate and learning style. Our goal is to find what best suites the needs for each individual; child and build them. We also believe in positive role modeling. Our commitment is to teach by example. Our teachers are continuously striving to excellence by participating in professional development, training and technical assistance that supports the design, implementation and evaluation of practices that are respectful of and responsible to each child and family. We have carefully selected toys and materials that are arranges in learning areas that offer individual and group experiences. We also provide an environment where children will feel encouraged, safe and loved each and every day. We will also build a strong foundation with our parents and community that will be beneficial towards the success of every unique child.

Parents, extended families and home environment child, cooperation provide the most significant contributions to a child's development. Therefore, our goal is to bridge home and day care for the child's benefit.
