Greetings from Calvary Chapel Christian Academy in Menifee,
Grace to you and peace, from God our Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ. Thank you for your interest in partnering with us in quality Christian education. CCCA began and continues to strive to support parents in raising up their children in the way of the Lord. Proverbs 22:6 tells us to “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.” It is a verse that is often used and is a powerful statement.
As the world’s system steers people away from the Word of God and directs them down paths that only lead to temporary results, there is more need for training up our young in true knowledge. At CCCA we work diligently on academics, but the real difference is the emphasis on basing it and everything else on the Bible. The standards, stories, examples, exhortations, and leading through God’s Word is vital, for now and eternity.
Throughout history great leaders, both good and bad, have poured into children, knowing that they would be the only way things will change. Scientists tell us that children are growing at an amazing rate when they are babies and as they grow older the rate of growth decreases. Thus, the importance of educating our children from a very young age. Psychologists report that character is formed in the preschool years and major personality traits are developed in the elementary years.
With all of the evidence aside, I don’t have a new saying, but one that I truly believe in. Most people say that children are our tomorrow. I understand what they are saying, but children are our NOW. There is nothing more important than the life of one of these little ones. “… Jesus said, ‘Let the little children come to Me, and do not forbid them; for such is the kingdom of heaven.'” (Matthew 19:14 NKJV) He didn’t say to bring them in the future when they are grown and can “offer” something, but to let them come now.
Now is the time to bring children to Jesus to be taught of Him by the Word of God, through Godly qualified teachers, prayers, and great Christian friends. CCCA is a small, secure, and loving school setting that keeps class sizes smaller than 15. Our curriculum is through the trusted and proven Bob Jones University curriculum. We are equipped and strive to ensure that every child’s education is tailored to each student’s needs.
Come and see how you can join our mission and support the training up of the children. “And all thy children shall be taught of the Lord; and great shall be the peace of they children.” Isaiah 54:13
