Calvary Christian Schools


  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • CCS plays a significant role in developing young people… not just educationally but spiritually and socially as well, with the goal of producing devoted followers of Jesus who will make a difference in our world. We are delighted to have some graduates from Calvary Christian Schools as a part of our student community at Cornerstone University!

  • I wish to extend my personal thanks to CCS for the 35 years of service to area students and their families. All of you have made a difference for so many children by ensuring a Christian foundation and quality instruction. Best wishes on your 35th anniversary.

  • 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.

  • 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
  • CCS is delivering a well-rounded, quality, Christian-centered education experience to its students. Their faith-based curriculum is preparing our children to compete in a global environment and to live as faithful disciples. CCS will continue to have a positive impact on our community for many years.

    Goeff Hansen – State Senator for the 34th District
  • 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.

  • 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.
