The school provides experiences through cooperative and independent learning, extra-curricular activities, and community involvement to enable students to achieve and care for others.

Calvary Chapel
Calvary Chapel Christian School is a private, non-public school on Route 62 in Russell. It operates without state regulations. The school was started in 1987 by Pastor Jeff York. His vision was to use the school as an outreach from fellowship and give parents an alternative education for their children. Calvary offers grades Pre-K – 12. They use A-BEKA developed by Pensacola Christian College in Florida for grades K-6. A combination of A-BEKA and a Pace program is used in grades 7-12. The Pace program is Accelerated Christian Education or A.C.E. in which the students work at their own individual program. The Bible is used daily as a part of the curriculum.

Students have daily Bible studies to train the whole child so that he or she will develop according to the example of Jesus Christ, who "increased in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man." (Luke 2:52) Calvary believes they are Accepting Today's Challenges, Shaping Tomorrow's Leaders. They have a staff dedicated to teaching children. If you want more information call (814) 757-8744.

Warren is the ideal place to home-school your children. Pennsylvania has a well-defined law which is easily complied with and there is a positive view of home-schooling in the Warren County School District and the Commonwealth. The school district policy is that home-schoolers are permitted to be involved in any district curricular or extra-curricular activities they choose. Home-schoolers have opportunities to go to the Warren County Career Center for CAD or small engine repair and some have taken leadership roles on high school sports teams. There is a county-wide support group which sponsors activities and special interest groups, including field trips, a yearly Project Fair, and an Envirothon team, which recently took 2nd place in the county competition. For further information, contact Robyn Samuelson at (814) 757-8016 or via e-mail at .
