Growing Kindness & Community
Rooted and Growing
At CCMS, we teach students to know God and His world through Christ-centered education to serve Him in today's society. We encourage students to use their God-given gifts in the classroom, in chapel, on the field, in the gym, on stage and in all the other ways that God will lead them.

Our Essential 10
Our Essential 10 provides a list of standards and expectations that help our students learn how to navigate the world as image bearers of God:
At CCMS, we believe in creating a place where all children feel they belong.
To foster a sense of community, students are divided equally into six different tribes: Ihamba, Pani, Escuderos, Armigeri, Na Maka’i, and Huenda (each meaning Squire in a different language). In these Tribes, students form friendships, serve the community, participate in school competitions, and meet in groups to develop critical thinking and soft skills.
These tribes, fondly named in honor of the tribes of Israel, cultivate good behavior through a point system, where students can earn points for their tribe by respecting others and honoring God.
Students can enroll in Spanish Immersion from preschool through 12th grade. This opportunity assists with a student’s cross-cultural awareness and competency, academic achievement, second language proficiency, and so much more. Spanish Immersion students not only learn a language but also a culture and another way of life.
Calvin Christian’s excellent Educational Support specialists strive to meet the needs of all students, while all teachers participate in a student support team that monitors all students’ progress and responds to their individual needs.
