Principal at Calvary Chapel Academy Boston
About Calvary Chapel Academy
Calvary Chapel Academy (CCA), a private Christian school, was established in 2004 by Pastor Randy Cahill, founding pastor of Calvary Chapel of Boston (CCoB), as an educational ministry of CCoB. Pastor Randy’s vision for the school is to provide the highest value of both spiritual and academic education founded on God’s word and in His wisdom.
The school provides educational opportunities for students entering Pre-kindergarten through High School. Currently, there are 127 students in the school with 35 students enrolled in the High School. Initially, the school started with grades Pre-Kindergarten through 7th grade adding a grade every year until CCA’s first graduating class of 2010. Since 2010, CCA has seen its graduates accepted into over seventy-five different colleges and universities, such as the University of Massachusetts Boston, University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, MIT, Liberty University, MA College of Pharmacy & Health Sciences, Boston University, Bridgewater State University, Emerson College, Wentworth Institute of Technology, Suffolk University, North Greenville University, Biola University and Gordon College.
The educational philosophy at CCA is to teach students from a biblical worldview, based on the literal interpretation of the Bible, using the New King James version. Our academic programs are designed to meet the various learning styles of students. CCA offers a wide selection of primary and fundamental classes as well as advanced placement, honors and college prep courses. Additionally, CCA offers students several electives and extra-curricular activities.
CCA believes that academic achievement, centered on a strong and prominent biblical foundation (Proverbs 1:7), will nurture students to become worldwide ambassadors for Christ. The school is governed by the church’s Pastoral Board who are actively involved with the students through weekly chapel, bible courses, academic teaching, academic advising, athletic coaching and extracurricular activities.
