Our History

Since 1939, Calvary Church has opened its doors and heart to families in the Charlotte community, investing in the next generation through multi-faceted ministries to children and students. The Calvary Child Development Center was founded in 1977 and continues to nurture preschoolers academically, socially, emotionally, and spiritually through their earliest years.

Now, Calvary Christian Academy extends our vision for Christian education to elementary, middle, and high school. CCA builds on the foundational work of Oaks Christian School, which was established in 2018 with a vision to educate children in the ways they were created to learn. Beginning with eight students in its first year, OCS grew to 80 students just four years later!

United in purpose and values as a ministry of Calvary Church, CCA is poised for continued growth. We move forward focused on providing Christ-centered education that cultivates academic excellence, social and emotional development, and spiritual growth, preparing students for God-glorifying lives.

“Our kids have attended the school since inception and we have loved our time there. They love to learn, which is a delight to see considering so many kids do not enjoy school. We are so happy at the school and can’t wait to see them continue to learn and grow in that environment.”
