What We Value

Welcome to CCCS Junior High! As a school, our mission is to educate students by integrating academic excellence with a Christian worldview, equipping them to impact their world for Christ. Our desire in junior high is to fulfill that mission.

We challenge our students to grow academically, spiritually, and socially. We recognize that when our students arrive in 7th grade, they may feel uncertain about the changes awaiting them in junior high. They are faced with new experiences: changing classes, daily PE (and wearing PE clothes!), operating a combination lock, managing their daily classwork and homework, and even making new friends.

We wish to walk alongside you and your student, through each challenge and success, as they grow through these experiences. Each year, we raise the bar as we strive for academic excellence for each student. During the student’s 8th grade year, we work to ensure that our students are not only ready for but will flourish in high school.


Guatemala Mission Trip

The call of missions is to love Jesus in such a way that you don’t need a specific event or place to witness but that from a heart desiring to see humanity saved, we live every single moment committed to being witnesses of the Gospel and its transforming power.

Please consider supporting our team financially and most important we covet your prayers as we head out June 1st, 2020 to continue the work of the Lord and continue to reach out to the victims of the volcano in Guatemala.

A MEssage From Our Principal

20/20 Vision

  “Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keeps the Word, happy is he.” Proverbs 29:18

It is an exciting time to join the Grizzly family! This school just celebrated 40 years serving our community and as we continue to move forward, we are excited to see what the Lord will do this year.

The leadership of Calvary Chapel Christian School understands the rich diversity and exceptional people who make up our community. Providing a Christian education with a vision and passion for the young lives is a high calling and a humbling honor for all of us at CCCS.

As a parent of 3 adults whom all graduated from CCCS and over 30 years of being involved in this school, I personally understand the deep need for quality, enriching Christ centered education that prepares the hearts and minds of our young to become impactful leaders in the future. We value service to others and recognize that a leader must first be a servant. Service to God and service to others is the ultimate point and purpose of education.

True Christian education consists of developing critical reasoning skills in students who can ascertain the various underlying worldview from publishers, authors, teachers, coaches, media, entertainment and the world around them, and compare those views to a Christian worldview. Our exceptional academics, athletics, and expressive arts programs all function together to build the character and gifts uniquely inherent in each child. From our Pre-school program which lays a firm foundation in the social, emotional, physical and mental development of the young, to our K-12 school emphasizing 21st-century learning modalities with a focus on science, technology, engineering, art and mathematics (STEAM), students will be equipped with the tools necessary to pursue the college and career opportunities of the future.

We desire our students to be curious active learners who investigate, question, analyze and explore with their hands, their hearts and their minds. These things happen when experienced and inspired faculty lead willing students who are strongly supported by an engaged and caring community.

As we look to our future, we are committed and will continue to invest in the lives of the students, in the lives of the parents, and in the lives of our dedicated and highly trained faculty and staff.

We encourage you to learn more about our Calvary Chapel Christian School community and join our family as we engage in our mission and high calling. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at jmendez@calvarydowney.org or at 562-803-4076

In Jesus’ love, until He comes,
