Calvary Road Baptist Academy welcomes you to our website! Located in Monrovia, California, the academy was founded in 1978 by Dr. Harold Beigle with the goal of “Training the Leaders of Tomorrow”. We are a private, Christian, college preparatory academy and offer an elementary and secondary education. Our curriculum extends from elementary to college courses with an emphasis on godly character and academic excellence.

Using the Accelerated Christian Education program, we offer an individualized curriculum tailored to meet the need of each student in an intimate classroom setting which allows the students a significant amount of one on one time with the teacher.

We are privileged to provide your children a quality education that is Christ centered and strives for academic excellence. Call today to schedule an appointment to tour our campus.

Our Curriculum

Our purpose in providing educational materials goes beyond simply helping students learn the academics required to enter college or get a good job. We desire to build in students a life-long burning passion to learn and grow spiritually. It is one thing to want children to be successful and quite another to provide the academic and character training to ensure this accomplishment.
In the 1960s, many students were not performing at their grade levels. This fact compelled many to question the very structure of the conventional educational system. With the Lord’s guidance, the A.C.E. curriculum addressed these concerns and designed a Biblically based educational program geared to meet the learning needs of individual children. This unique program consists of mastery-based curriculum and materials that are self-instructional, character building, and individually prescribed.
Individualization helps produce academic excellence. Students using the A.C.E. program continue to demonstrate above-average achievement. One reason is that they take responsibility for their own learning. Additionally, they receive character training in Biblical principles. Moreover, students using the A.C.E. program go on to higher education and into ministry and professional pursuits with confidence and a superb educational background.
We understand the importance of computer technology in training students. The same self-instructional, mastery-based philosophy of the A.C.E. curriculum applies to technology training. Students generate excitement when they actively participate in their education through computer-based learning. We offer computer-based learning through online diagnostic testing, ReadMaster Plus, video and DVD courses, and the Computer Science Project.
We are committed to the parent as well as the student. We believe that a successful education of a child begins with the parent! That’s why we have compiled training materials that will enable parents to implement the Accelerated Christian Education program successfully.
Leadership Training is a key element to the success of the A.C.E. program. Training sessions are conducted offering instruction in Biblical educational philosophy, administration guidelines, and school operation using A.C.E.’s innovative curriculum and methods.
Student programs give Christian students opportunities to build character and learn leadership skills outside the classroom. From participating in international competitions to serving others in foreign countries, these programs offer students the opportunity to gain skills, become leaders, and help meet real needs!
