When students reach the middle school level (grades 6, 7, and 8) at Mount Calvary, they begin an intentional transition into more independent learning.
Students are introduced to a variety of domains and skill sets, as well as a rotation of specials. Beginning in 6th grade, students have the opportunity to participate in Chargers Athletics.
MCCS faculty and staff walk middle school students through an intentional progression of missions (6th grade), speech (7th grade), and career opportunities (8th grade). The missions/global perspective portion helps students learn to think beyond themselves, the focus on speech teaches students the essential skill of communicating effectively, and the career opportunities section helps students start to consider their future.
To conclude their time in middle school, students are exposed to secular and ministry-minded careers that are tied to their unique gifts and talents as well as the Great Commission.

Mount Calvary Christian School places a great amount of care into the curriculum plan each year. A systematic review of all curriculum is completed on an annual basis to ensure the information we teach our students is current and relevant in today’s educational climate. Special attention is placed on a specific subject each year, and a thorough evaluation of that curriculum ensures families that MCCS is best preparing your child to succeed academically.
In addition to reviewing the school’s curriculum, much attention is placed on vertically integrating the curriculum between grade levels. Meetings are regularly held to assess each classes progress as well as to discuss the individual needs of special students within the class.
The result of the diligent work of the school’s curriculum committee is a complete educational experience that allows graduating seniors to excel at the college level.
