2017-2018 High School New Student Information
Calvary Chapel High School was established to meet the educational, social, and spiritual needs of the children of Calvary Chapel of Costa Mesa, pastored by Pastor Brian Brodersen. CCHS is a ministry of CCCM, building up Christian leaders in mind, body, and soul through Biblical truth, character development, and strong academic pursuits enabling students to serve and enjoy Christ and their community. All of our classes are taught by teachers who love Jesus, love teaching, and love their students. It is our desire to build a solid foundation of knowledge while also ministering to the needs of the whole child. We do not seek those that do not have a relationship with our Lord Jesus Christ.
Below you will find some basic information about our school. We encourage you to apply online and make it a matter of prayer. 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.
Calvary Chapel Schools seeks young men and women who will benefit from a college preparatory, liberal arts education taught by teachers who are knowledgeable and passionate about their field of study, compassionate and excited about the students they teach and substantial in their Christian faith, thought and character. 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's 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 honesty and wholeheartedly apply themselves to the study of God's Word. They also 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.
