Calvin Christian School is an accredited funded independent school in Alberta, Canada. The school was established to offer education to the children of members of the Netherlands Reformed Congregations (Ger. Gem.) of southern Alberta. Currently, there are NRC congregations in Fort Macleod, Lethbridge, Nobleford, and Picture Butte. A number of school families also belong to the RCNA (Ger. Gem. in Ned.) congregation in Monarch. The school is in a rural area roughly central between these congregations, and students are transported to and from school each day by bus.
CCS is organized into elementary (Kindergarten through Grade 5; age 5-11), middle school (Gr. 6-8; age 11-14), and high school (Gr. 9-12; age 14-18) divisions. Each division occupies a separate section of the school building, and each is led by its own vice-principal. As a school open to all children of our church families, CCS has long practiced inclusive education, providing an extensive resource program (with the help of a number of Educational Assistants) for students with special educational needs.
