Welcome from the Principal


Hello and welcome to Calvary Chapel Christian School. Thank you for taking a few minutes to explore our website. Allow me to cover a few of the important points of interest you should know about our school.

We are passionate about Jesus, Biblical education and ministering to students. We believe as Christians that we are called to excellence (Colossians 3:23) in whatever we do, be that academics, athletics or performing arts.

We are fully accredited with WASC (Western Association of Schools and Colleges) and ACTS (Association of Christian Teachers and Schools) and are a member of ACSI (Association of Christian Schools International).

Some of the colleges and universities our students are attending are as follows: California State University of Long Beach, Fullerton, Dominguez Hills; UCLA, USC, University of Hawaii, University of San Diego, New York University, Biola, Vanguard, Azusa Pacific University, The Masters College, Grand Canyon University, Long Beach City College, Cerritos College, Northwestern College, Whittier College, United States Air Force Academy, Drury University, Rio Hondo Fire Academy.

We offer competitive CIF sports. For boys, we offer baseball, basketball, cross country, football, soccer, swimming, track & field, volleyball, and wrestling. For girls, we offer basketball, cheerleading, cross country, soccer, softball, swimming, track & field, and volleyball.

We offer the following AP courses: 2D Studio Art, Chemistry, and Physics. Most of our advanced classes are Early College Courses through a partnership with Hope International University. Through this partnership our students are earning duel credit (both high school and college credit) for the following courses: Music Theory, US History, Anatomy, Calculus, and English. Our Learning Centers are also up and running for Elementary, Junior High and High School.

Our fine arts department is well respected in the community. Some of the opportunities within the fine arts department are as follows: Choir, Culinary Arts, Drama, Drawing, Multimedia, Sculpture, and Band. Our choir has performed with the LA Philharmonic and at Disneyland’s Candlelight Processional, and every other year they perform a musical that is second to none. We are also now offering Woodshop and Auto Mechanics.

We have an administrative team to provide spiritual counsel and discipline guidance to students. Our college counselor/academic advisor meets the various needs of our students.

I trust these points afford you a brief glimpse into the life of Calvary Chapel Christian School. I encourage you to pray and see if God would have you and your family become part of our school. Please give me a call if you have any questions or would like a tour of our campus.

Go Grizzlies!

Jesus loves you,

Pastor Roger Stahlhut

Junior High/High School Principal
