calvary chapel online school dove icon no shadingIt is very important to be aware that many very different types of educational programs are all categorized as “online learning.” Many times the only similarity between these programs is the word “online” and nothing else. Calvary Preparatory Academy is considerably different from many other online education programs currently available.


Many other programs only offer re-packaged products.

Other providers have taken their existing textbook curriculum and products and simply put the materials online, thereby calling themselves “online schools.” Calvary Preparatory Academy is considerably different in that every aspect of our school, from curriculum, instruction, classrooms, administration, etc. has been custom designed from the ground up for a strategic delivery online. Don’t be fooled by other programs which merely offer pre-recorded video lectures or e-book curriculum.

Many other programs often don’t actually provide a mentor teacher.

Calvary Preparatory Academy provides a rigorously selected, credentialed teacher to work individually with each student to provide valuable academic support. By going with other programs, you risk enrolling in a program that literally does not have a teacher for your child. All of our teachers are not only credentialed professionals, but these also serve as Christian role models and mentors to students in their faith. Teachers pray with students, encourage them in their faith, answer difficult questions, and direct them to grow in their knowledge of the work God has done, and is doing, through the person of Jesus Christ.

Many other programs only provide limited teacher support.

Many other programs don’t provide live teacher support. If other programs do provide teachers, they are often only “mentors” who are available by email or phone only. These mentors in other programs may or may not be credentialed professionals, or they may be college students serving as tutors. Some programs actually outsource their support help to India.
