Capistrano Valley Christian Schools

Preparing Students for Life and Leadership


At CVCS, we understand the deep desire of parents to see their children lead lives filled with meaning and purpose. We firmly believe that every individual is crafted for greatness by God, and our mission is to unlock that potential in each of our students. Our nurturing culture is the cornerstone of our students' flourishing. It starts with instilling a profound understanding of each student's intrinsic value in God's eyes and the transformative power of a meaningful relationship with Jesus. This ethos is passionately upheld by our world-class teachers and coaches, who are not just educators but mentors. They deeply care, tirelessly work, and consistently go the extra mile to cultivate leaders who are not only academically adept but are also morally grounded and driven to excel in every aspect of life. At CVCS, we don't just educate; we inspire greatness.

Parent testimonial of school facility

The campus is always clean, is nicely updated, has vegetable gardens all over, is not too big / not too small, and is *secure* (the entire perimeter has a gated fence and an armed security guard outside on campus at all times). The school is truly wonderful- we love it. CVCS Parent

The elementary principal is AMAZING. She is truly a saint–knows every single student by name and what they’re into, extremely guided by Christian values, a strong leader and a loving person. CVCS-Parent
