Educating and Cultivating Servants for Christ
Educating Servants for Christ… We are a middle and senior high school committed to high academic standards. Our biblically-integrated, college-preparatory curriculum is delivered by a dedicated staff of Christian professionals. We are committed to teaching from a biblical worldview and philosophy.
Cultivating Servants for Christ… We are committed to providing our students with experiences and opportunities that will foster in them a servant’s heart. This cultivation is facilitated through participation in extra-curricular activities such as inter-scholastic athletics, music, theater, and many service organizations. In addition, we sponsor annual short-term mission trips as well as numerous opportunities for service throughout the school year.
CVCA aims to create a Christian school community characterized by transforming relationships that produce a lived-out faith in the lives of our students.
CVCA’s Vision is to impact students in a transformational way so they are equipped to be agents of transformation in their school, home, church, nation, and world.
Our Core Values
At the foundation of our Mission and Vision, it is our hope and expectation that these values will define our school community:
Christ-Centered Education: An education based on the authority of the Word of God and the supremacy of Christ
Value the Whole Student: A commitment to value each student as a unique creation of an all-wise God
Community that Trains and Mentors: A community of agape love and grace that grows in an environment built upon shared values, communication, and cooperation
Authentic Faith: A faith in Jesus Christ which is growing, genuine, and unshakable, resulting in a life which conforms to the image of Christ
In God’s purpose and plan, He has purchased for Himself individuals from every tribe, language, people, and nation (Revelation 5:9-10). God is a Trinity, and scripture instructs the community of believers to model its relationships after God’s unified plurality (John 17:20-23; Ephesians 4:1-6). While uniqueness should be celebrated, unified identity for all believers is found in Christ (Ephesians 2:19-22; Galatians 3:26-28).
Unity with God and others is at the very core of the Gospel message; Christ offers redemption through His perfect life and sacrificial death. The importance of building unity in a diverse community is paramount as CVCA seeks to Educate and Cultivate Servants for Christ. CVCA values ethnic diversity (Acts 17:26, Colossians 3:11), socio-economic diversity (James 2:1-9), and spiritual and academic gifting diversity (Jeremiah 1:5, Matthew 25:14-30, Ephesians 4:11-13). These values are not based on human wisdom but founded on the infallible truth of Scripture. The ability to demonstrate unity amidst healthy diversity bears public witness to the redeeming work of Jesus.
Every human being has inherent dignity because human beings are made in the image of God (Genesis 1:26). The value of each person is, therefore, intrinsic rather than based upon a person’s ethnicity, socio-economic status, gender, or gifts and abilities. Ethnic, class, gender, and ability prejudice is wrong. It is a form of self-righteousness and a means of feeling worthy based upon our own merits; it is a denial of the very principle of grace (Ephesians 2:8-9).
Reconciliation is the heart of the Gospel (2 Corinthians 5:11-21), and the transforming power of the Gospel is sufficient to conquer deep divisions of prejudice and racism. As individuals within the CVCA community grow in understanding God’s love for them, they are able to exercise true love for others (1 John 4:10-11; Mark 12:29-31). A biblical community like CVCA should be marked by compassion, sympathizing with others’ perspective and experience (Colossians 3:12-14).
