Q: Is Calvary Chapel Schools open for in-person instruction?

A: Yes! In spite of the challenges of the COVID pandemic, we successfully and consistently remained opened to in-person, full-day learning on our campus. This has been made possible through the ingenuity and earnest efforts of our administrative team, implementing safety in several ways, including but not limited to:


Temperature checks every morning

Smaller class sizes with student spacing of 4 feet or more

Increased classroom ventilation and sanitization of desks between every period

Masks are worn throughout the day, except while eating or during physical activity

Exercise and eating outside or in large spaces like the gym to increase airflow and ventilation
