Thank You- Christmas Gifts for Appalachia
Thank you to all families at CCS and Triangle Baptist Church that provided gifts for the families in the hollers of Eastern Kentucky. The gifts were delivered by a mission team that reached out to the Elkhorn City Community by providing Christmas gifts, a community dinner, and door to door ministry.
The Freeda Harris Baptist Center served over 300 families at Christmas and makes a difference each day in the lives of those who live in that area.
Calvary Christian School Middle & High School Retreat
The middle and high school students at CCS will be heading to Headwaters, Virginia, for a retreat on January 27-29. The students will have an opportunity study God's Word and learn to apply what they learn to their lives through interactive activities while having fun in the process. Past retreats have yielded hikes to the tops of mountains, zip lining, scaling the rock climbing wall and pie drops! If there is snow, the ATVs to make massive sled runs!
Headwaters Lodge is located about an hour southwest of
Harrisburg in Highland County. This organization has hosted past retreats and mission teams from Calvary Christian School. This is always a favorite event at CCS, so parents are encouraged to get their student involved. By the way, we need parent volunteers to share in this hardship tour! :)
Thanking God for the 2016 Christmas Program at Calvary Christian School
Many from the Calvary Christian School community celebrated Christmas with the students through honoring the Lord with a Christmas program. The children sang about and acted out many passages from Scripture to honor the birth of the Savior. It was obvious that the students were well prepared and excited about sharing there faith! A huge thank you to the faculty members who plugged in to take leadership over the program, especially Mrs. Lee who saw the program through from start to finish!
The Lord was honored by the actions of our students, but more importantly, their heart as they worshiped Him!
Protected Registration for 2017-18 at CCS!
Celebrating 30 Years of Ministry!
On January 13, protected registration will be open for next school year to all our currently enrolled families. Protected Registration allows students to gain priority in enrollment and a reduced tuition rate. This year, this will be especially important as the school embarks upon a massive effort to expand enrollment in a variety of ways.

Enroll for CCS Second Semester
Each year, it is a privilege to partner with parents who desire a Christ- centered education for their children.
If you are a new family to the area, unhappy with your current educational choice for your child, please consider making a call to the school for a personal visit. We want to share with you the story of Calvary Christian School and what we are about as a ministry. We also want to listen to what you need for your children. This type of personal care is one of the things which makes our school special.
The Application Process:
1- Review the student handbook and website to become acquainted with the school.
2- Call for a personal interview. We request that both parents attend the meeting. Parents should bring the most recent progress report which will allow the administration to see if additional educational evaluation is needed.
3- Parents will have ten days from the date of the interview to make application along with the payment of the Registration and Book Fee. The school will act upon that application within ten days. In the event the school is unable to accept a student, fees paid will be refunded.
Call the school office at 703-441-6868 to set up a campus visit!
Housekeeping- Putting the Puzzle Together!
This year, we made some changes in the uniform code at CCS. Some students are still not wearing the proper uniform, jacket or shoes to school every day. We ask that each family review what is happening in that area and make the needed changes.
Also, please remember that school begins at 8:30 AM. All students should arrive between 8:15 and 8:30 AM except morning care students. Every class begins Bible at 8:30, and we believe starting class with honoring God sets the tone for the day. Please help us in this area.
2017-2018 Scholarship Programs

Adverse Weather Policy
Decisions related to the opening and closing of the school are made by the school administrator about 5:30 AM each morning during times of actual or predicted adverse weather. Parents should look at the top of the homepage and check their email to find the status of school operations.
In the event school must be closed early, the same communication methods will be used. Additionally, we will do our best to phone parents regarding the closing. Parents ae encouraged to call the school at 703-441-6868 in the event there is a question regarding an early closing.
The safety of our school community is always at the heart of the administrator's weather call on school operations. Because of the large geographic area in which our school community lives and the various types of topography, parents always have the last word on keeping their children home.
One of the great blessings of being brothers and sisters in Christ is that we can pray with one another. Call or stop by the office if you would like to pray together!
Passage of the Month: John 4:13-14
