Our History


  • 1999 - When It All Began

     The elders and pastors at Calvary Chapel Melbourne were led to open a preschool as a ministry that reached out to families with three and four year old children. The preschool was located in our current A building. Kindergarten was added in 2000, and first grade was added for the 2002-2003 school year. It was during this year that the kindergarten and first grade classes were moved to the brand new C building where the school is currently located.
  • 2002 - GOD SAYS EXPAND

    The pastors and elders felt God leading them to expand the school again, so by spring of 2003, it was decided that grades two through six would be added all at once. In August 2003, Calvary Chapel Christian School opened its doors with 235 students, increasing from just 79 students the previous year. The following two school years, seventh and eighth grades were added. On May 21, 2006, Calvary Chapel graduated its first class of 8th graders.
  • 2007 - DOUBLED IN SIZE

     The school was blessed with a large expansion, doubling its size. In fall of 2008, the school officially changed its name from Calvary Chapel Christian School to Calvary Chapel Academy.

    The school was accredited through the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI). ACSI is the largest Protestant educational organization in the world. 

    The school became dually accredited with AdvancED, the largest community of education professionals in the world. They serve as a trusted partner to 34,000 schools and school systems across the U.S. and 70 other nations. CCA is among only a few evangelical Christian schools to hold the status of AdvancED accreditation on the Space Coast.

    After extensive searching and discussion, senior leadership at both Covenant and Calvary believe embracing a merger of the two schools will strengthen each and preserve Christian high school education in Brevard County. 

    With the merger, Calvary extends to a Pre-Kindergarten through 12th grade Christian Academy.
