To Honour Christ in all of Life
Calvin Christian School is committed to working in partnership with parents to provide students with excellence in Christian education in the context of the 21st century, such that they are prepared to successfully meet the challenges of living and relating in ways that honour Jesus Christ in an increasingly complex and changing world.
In seeking to provide a Christian education, Calvin recognises the pre-eminence of Jesus Christ in all things and encourages students to honour Him in all areas of life and living. It is the school’s desire for the education it provides to be transformational.
As a Christian school, excellence is an expression of faithful stewardship where teachers seek to make full use of what God has given to them by way of gifts, talents and abilities so that students can fully realise the potential God has given each of them.

‘Consecrate the fiftieth year and proclaim liberty throughout the land to all the inhabitants. It shall be a jubilee for you.’ (Leviticus 25:10a)
