Welcome from the Head of Schools

The dreams we have for our children are based on hopes for a lifetime of success, happiness, and purpose.  At Capistrano Valley Christian Schools, we believe the foundations of those dreams are built on a rich academic program coupled with an emphasis on spiritual and moral development.  Our students learn through a program that values and develops critical thinking, innovation, creativity and foundational skills to prepare them for life after graduation.  As you explore our web site, we hope you sense the dynamic learning environment we have created in order to prepare our students for success in all their future endeavors. 


Though academic success is important to us, it is meaningless unless we also develop students who are positive contributors to our society’s moral fabric.  We instill Christian faith, virtue, and character in our children by weaving biblical principles into every component of our program, and the result is a young person who is prepared for leadership and service.  The outstanding CVCS staff possesses an authentic care and love for the students who grace our halls every day, which creates a deeply connected sense of community that sets us apart from other schools in South Orange County. 


In addition to academic rigor and spiritual development, CVCS maintains an athletic program that has won multiple CIF championships while teaching athletes integrity and discipline, and maintains award-winning fine and performing arts departments.


Thank you for taking the time to explore Capistrano Valley Christian School.  I pray that God will bless you as you seek to make the best decisions for your child’s future.
