Calvary Chapel Schools (CCS) is a ministry of Calvary Chapel Costa Mesa Church. We are a Christ-centered school, offering a unique opportunity for students to be educated from Preschool through High School. Our mission is to build tomorrow’s Christian leaders today by engaging, equipping, and empowering students through Biblical truth, character development, and strong academic pursuits, preparing students to serve Christ and lead in their community. All of our classes are taught by teachers who are committed to a personal relationship with Christ. We desire to build a solid foundation of knowledge while also ministering to the needs of the whole child.
If you are interested in partnering with Calvary Chapel Schools to provide your child with a Christ-centered education, we invite you to apply.
Step 1: Explore - We recommend that parents begin by attending Info Night or scheduling a tour. We also encourage you to review our website and handbook to become familiar with Calvary Chapel School’s philosophies and guidelines. Pray and discern if CCS is the right school for your child. You can also fill out our CCS Interest Form to receive more information.
Step 2: Apply - Apply online through FACTS. New fall applications are made available on the first of February. Otherwise, applications are available online throughout the year. Applicants are required to upload a copy of their most recent report card, behavior reports, and standardized test scores (test scores from a previous year are acceptable if the current year is not yet available). Incomplete applications will not be processed*.
Step 3: Interview - Once a completed application is received and processed by the Admissions Office, you will be contacted by the Admissions Department to schedule an interview.
Step 4: Enroll - If an offer of admission is presented, you will receive an enrollment packet via email. Complete the enrollment packet by uploading an immunization record, birth certificate, and paying the enrollment fee through FACTS. Once these steps are completed, you will receive confirmation of enrollment.
Candidates for admission are considered on their academic record, discipline records, standardized test scores, evident enthusiasm for learning, and a personal interview that evaluates the student and parental support of the vision and mission of Calvary Chapel Schools. All students must have a desire to attend Calvary Chapel Schools and agree to honestly and wholeheartedly apply themselves. They also must agree to be courteous and respectful to their peers, staff, faculty, and others.
Calvary Chapel Schools reserves the right to select students and families based on their worldview, lifestyle choices, academic performance, and personal qualifications including the willingness to cooperate with the Administration and abide by the school policies and mission.
Calvary Chapel Schools admits students of any race, color, and national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at our schools. We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin in admissions policies, scholarship, athletic, and other school-administered programs.
In accordance with California state law, kindergarten applicants must be age 5 by September 1, 2022.
