Homeschool Ministry


Purpose & Philosophy

The Lord charges parents with the ultimate responsibility of instructing their children in all areas of growth and development (Deut. 6:6-9, Prov. 22:6, Eph. 6:4). For those families who have chosen to obey this admonition in the form of home education, Chino Valley Christian Academy has been established. Our goal is to provide a structured support system to aid parents in obtaining the highest quality education for their children in terms of spiritual and academic excellence. Through home education, parents can have greater control over the character development and spiritual training of their children.

Our Independent Study Program allows for one-to-one teaching with individualized curriculum tailored to each student so that he or she can learn comfortably at his or her own rate. Parents are responsible for purchasing curriculum that best suits their student’s educational needs.

Three areas of home education that are continually stressed in our program are family support, parental education, and family accountability.


Family Support

Fellowship among member families is necessary to uphold and encourage one another, as independent studies can put strains on families, financially, emotionally, and socially. “Two are better than one…for if either of them falls, the one will lift up his companion,” Eccl. 4:9-12.


Parental Education

Committed teachers always need to look for opportunities to improve their teaching skills. To ensure the strength, unity, and effectiveness of our program, we hold periodic Parent/Teacher Meetings. “The way of a fool is right in his own eyes, but a wise man is he who listens to counsel,” Prov. 12:15.


Family Accountability

Member families are expected to meet all school requirements and make consistent progress toward attaining set educational goals.



You must be attending Calvary Chapel Chino Valley consistently for at least six months and consider it your home church. A completed ministry application must also be on file or one must be filled out upon turning in a registration application.


Tuition & Records

Member families are required to pay tuition, as scheduled, unless other arrangements have been made. Report cards and attendance records are due quarterly and must be received by the due date. Failure to comply gives us reason to terminate our agreement.


Parent/Teacher Meetings

Parent/Teacher Meetings for member families are held periodically throughout the year. At least one parent, preferably the teaching parent, should attend. The purposes of these meetings are to encourage one another and share educational information.


Home School Legal Defense Association

Member families are required to join the Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) by September. HSLDA provides legal counsel and representation for families who educate their children at home.
