Calvary Christian Schools


  • When I think of CCS, the word that comes to mind is passionate. Their teachers are passionate; their parents are passionate; and their students are passionate. They are passionate about education, about sports, about fun, about relationships – but most importantly, this is a community that is passionate about Jesus Christ. At the heart of their identity is the desire to train the next generation to be passionately committed to the glory and work of Jesus – is there any better reason to educate?

  • Calvary Christian Schools sets itself apart by their commitment to the character development of each individual student. In an atmosphere which exemplifies faith, hope, and love, CCS inspires and equips students through comprehensive education, competitive athletics, and a distinctively biblical world-view.

  • A person’s character is revealed in seasons of difficulty. I have had the opportunity to meet with, pray with, and seek God’s direction with the leadership of Calvary Christian Schools. Their dependency on God is authentic, and I have confidence that as they lead CCS forward, that those who attend CCS will be led by leaders who are being led by Jesus.

    Pastor David Wisen – Harvest Bible Chapel
  • In a day when the term ‘Christian’ means just about anything, it’s pretty clear that CCS is a Christian school in the true sense of the term. Keeping Christ at the center of their vision and honoring Him in education, I’m pleased to recommend this school to anyone.

    Pastor Nate Birkholz – Lakeshore Baptist Church, Grand Haven
  • Calvary provided a great foundation for my children, both academically and spiritually. There is nothing that compares to your child coming home after making a bad choice at school, to explain how their teacher corrected their behavior, then prayed with them. Our children were not just taught, they felt loved at CCS.

    Bill Cooper – Muskegon Area Entrepreneur and Business Leader
  • I always enjoy speaking at Calvary Christian Schools as the students take ownership of their experience. I always work with a student running the technology and speak after a student-planned, student-practiced and student-led worship. It’s a blessing to see them faithfully training up the next generation of Christian leaders through both teaching and real-life experience.

    Ben Vander Kodde – Speaker/Trainer for Grace Adventures Camp
  • I appreciate the long history and rich legacy of Calvary Christian Schools. As the place where our children received their elementary and secondary education, I was consistently grateful for the school’s Bible-centered approach and caring, godly mentors. And as pastor of a congregation with several staff and student body families, I continue to be thankful for CCS’ unique niche in serving the educational needs of this community.

    Pastor Eric Strattan – Bridge Bible Church
  • I have had the privilege to work with CCS students in the area of worship leading for their chapels. When a school puts emphasis on the worship of Jesus Christ and the students follow with excitement and service, you know something right is happening there. Students closing their eyes, lifting their hands and singing loudly lifting high the name of Jesus Christ is a beacon of light in the midst of an unguided generation.

    Christopher Moeller – HBCSL Pastoral Staff
  • On a regular basis, I interact with students from many different public and private schools and school districts in the greater Muskegon area. With few exceptions, Calvary students show a drive for improvement and an intellectual curiosity that has clearly found nourishment in their families and their educational environment. Their interactions are mature and respectful without exception. It is clear to me that these students are products of a solid system.

    Dave Van Andel – Physical Therapist, Owner Shoreline Sport & Spine Physical Therapy
  • I have observed CCS in good times and in challenging times, and the commitment to Christian education by teachers, staff, and leadership has been unwavering. The students of CCS have witnessed role models living out a biblical worldview, a vibrant faith and courageous leadership while learning the core essentials of a good education. I can think of no better preparation for our children and for future Christian leaders which our community so desperately needs.
