The teacher is

at the heart of Calvary Christian Academy's pursuit of excellence.

In addition to educational certification, we ensure that our teachers are spiritually mature believers, called and equipped by God with hearts for shepherding and instructing our most precious gifts: our children. This is especially important because the character of our teachers will be mirrored in their students.

Everyone who is perfectly trained will be like his teacher. 

-Luke 6:40, ESV

For this reason, CCA does not compromise on a stringent faculty selection process — our goal is to build a faculty that reflects the character of Christ.


of our faculty have earned their Bachelor's degree. 


        of our faculty have earned their Master's Degree.


of our faculty have been teaching for five years or more.


                      of our faculty have been teaching for ten years or more.

Because CCA is a ministry of Calvary Port St Lucie, we benefit from the support of the church's pastoral leadership, administrative staff, and integration with other ministries in our endeavor to make disciples and prepare our students spiritually, academically, and socially.
