Calvary Christian Academy began in 1985 as a direct result of the vision, dreams, and planning of Pastor John Anderegg. With the purchase of 28 acres in 1985, the dream became a reality. The initial construction included the school office building, the library, and the elementary and high school wings; these were constructed in less than six weeks. In August, 1985, the first classes began. CCA opened with 110 students enrolled in kindergarten through eighth grade. With the addition of the gymnasium, cafeteria (fellowship hall), and the church office in June of 1988, the school was able to provide a well rounded education to its high school students as well.
The first class of 8 students graduated in 1989. In 1997 Pastor Jim Raley was called to Calvary Assembly of God, now known as Calvary Christian Center, and has continued the vision and ministry of Calvary Christian Academy. The entire facility was remodeled in the summer of 2002 and today has an enrollment of more than 350 students in the academy.
