Dear CCS Friend,
In 1971, John Lennon released the song “Imagine.” In this song, Lennon presents his atheistic worldview, by encouraging the hearer to imagine a world with no religion, no heaven, no hell . . . in essence, no God. Fast-forward almost 50 years and we live in a world today that has adopted this philosophy and is walking rapidly away from Truth. Our culture has abandoned God and our youth are being encouraged to compromise biblical standards and principles. The ability to sit in a classroom that has the Bible as the foundational text for learning has never been more important than it is today.
Calvary Christian School sits at the crux of this conversation in Northern Kentucky. Our goal is to provide the opportunity for a Christ-centered education for every family who desires it. We’ve experienced wonderful growth, however, we are out of space in our Elementary wing. For the 2020-2021 school year, we will add a second class for 2nd grade and 5th grade. With some juggling, this will use up the last bit of educational space we have for classrooms. If we do not act now, not only will we have to deny new students at certain grade levels, but we will have to tell some existing students that they will not be able to continue at CCS because we have no space for the additional class. We cannot allow this to happen.
Let’s imagine what tomorrow could look like. Imagine a tomorrow where CCS continually graduates students to impact the world for Christ. Imagine a tomorrow where there is room to grow. Imagine a tomorrow that allows CCS to accept more students who desire a Christian, college-prep education. Imagine the addition of four classrooms. Imagine two additional bathrooms. Imagine a fenced in outdoor learning area. “Imagine Tomorrow” at Calvary Christian School.
First and foremost, this addition will help us fulfill our mission of “equipping the next generation to impact the world for Christ.” Second, it should help us keep tuition increases stable in the coming years. As the cost of private Christian education rises (which it does every year), there are only two ways for our educational institution to increase revenue. We can either increase tuition or increase enrollment. Third, the potential tuition income from this project will help fund our next needed expansion: a second gym/performing arts center. This addition will cause a ripple effect and benefit ALL CCS families.
The “Imagine Tomorrow” campaign seems daunting, however, we serve a big and powerful God! We believe He has called us to this assignment and we will trust Him for the results. This is an important crossroads for CCS and we need your help to navigate it successfully. We are excited to “Imagine Tomorrow” with you at Calvary Christian School.
