- Headmaster / Pastor
In 2007, I joined CCA, and I was appointed headmaster in 2017. Prior to my current appointment, I served the school in several roles including the school’s Principal, Guidance Counselor and Lead Pastor. In addition to my role at CCA, I serve as the head of children’s ministry at Calvary Chapel of Boston. I am an alumnus of Wentworth Institute of Technology in Boston where I was a CoSIDA 1st team Academic All-American and graduated Salutatorian. I hold a Masters of Arts in Christian Education from Calvary Chapel University.
I am passionate about further developing the scope of the school’s mission with the guidance of the Lord and strive every day to serve the school in a way that is pleasing to Him. I pray every day for the Lord’s guidance, grace and protection of our students and family.
It has been a blessing to coach several basketball teams at the Junior and Senior High level. I’ve enjoyed seeing our men’s varsity soccer and varsity basketball as well as our ladies’ volleyball move into the Massachusetts’s Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA).
My wife and I, as well as our three children, have attended Calvary Chapel of Boston for many years, and our children also attend CCA.
For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show Himself strong on behalf of those whose heart is loyal to Him.
- Vice Principal
I have been blessed to be the vice principal at CCA since its inception in 2004. Every day is an honor to serve the Lord while working with our incredible staff and wonderful students. I love being involved in a Christian environment with the freedom to pray and help nurture our students as they grow in the knowledge of Jesus Christ.
Before coming to CCA, my husband and I met and worked together at the Federal Reserve Bank in Boston where I gained experience in the accounting department. We then went on to start the New England Craft Exposition where we were show promoters of the Canterbury Crafts Festival. Then, God called us out of “show business” and placed us at CCA where we continue to enjoy working together.
I enjoy running marathons, biking, and walking as well as playing my guitar and singing. I am so thankful for my salvation and hope to serve God all of the days of my life.
Fear not, for I am with you; Be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes. I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.

To me, CCA provides an environment for students to pursue their academics and grow in their relationship with Christ in a loving Christian environment.
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,” declares the LORD. “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.”

I gave my heart to the Lord Jesus in 1977 and walked faithfully with my Jesus ever since. I am a mother of six adult children and a grandmother of sixteen. I was married for thirty-six years to my husband, Pastor Tony Marinelli of Calvary Chapel Cape Cod. In 2014, my husband passed away after fighting for a long time with leukemia.

This hope we have as an anchor of the soul, both sure and steadfast, and which enters the presence behind the veil.
Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!

I have been blessed to be the second grade teacher at CCA since 2012. I have over twenty-four years’ experience working in all grades – Kindergarten through High School. I graduated from Elms College with a Bachelor of Arts with a double major in Elementary Education and Mathematics.
I love teaching and seeing the excitement in my students’ eyes when a concept becomes clear or they discover something for the first time. We have fun, learn, share, and pray for each other. I feel so blessed to be able to share my love of learning and my love of Christ with my students each day.
My husband and I just celebrated our twenty-second wedding anniversary, and we are blessed with four beautiful children (and a very cute dog). Currently, two of our daughters attend CCA.

I started teaching third-grade at CCA in 2016 and also teach 5th and 6th grade art classes. I hold a Bachelor of Arts in English from Bridgewater State University.
The staff is incredible at CCA. I stand amazed at how the love of Christ just flows through the hallways of this school. In a world that is so broken, it’s wonderful to see students being trained to be a light and beacon in a very dark world.
My husband and I are truly blessed to be parents to three amazing little girls. It was a privilege to have homeschooled them for three years before starting at CCA. Now, the Lord has led us to CCA where I spend my days training up the 3rd grade and seeing my children being taught by the great staff.

I graduated high school from CCA. Throughout my years as a student, I got to experience firsthand the wonderful teaching of the staff here, not only in academic subjects but also in how to walk with the Lord. Now that I’m a staff member, I can see how much time, effort, and prayers each teacher puts into their work here at CCA. Not only are they determined to give each child the best instruction in each subject, but are just as concerned with each student’s walk with the Lord.
I play piano and sing on the Calvary Chapel of Boston’s worship team. In my spare time, I love reading and watching old TV shows like Dick Van Dyke and I Love Lucy.
To everything there is a season, and a time for every purpose under heaven.
- 5th Grade Teacher
I began teaching second grade in 2004, the first year that Calvary Chapel Academy opened, and continued teaching through 2007. When I had my own children, I stayed home with them until God revealed to me that he wanted me to teach again. Once my children went to school, I began substituting at all levels from preschool to high school both short-term and long-term. I love getting to know all the students and seeing their growth academically and spiritually from year-to year. The best part about teaching is that we have the freedom to pray with one another and encourage spiritual growth. I graduated from Gordon College with a Bachelors of Arts in Journalism and Video Editing with a minor in Business Management.
I have been married for over 16 years and have 2 children that attend CCA. My husband and I were the directors of AWANA at our church, Calvary Chapel of Boston, for over 13 years until God had us step down this year so I could become the new 5th grade teacher at CCA. I never thought I would come back to teach full time and am very excited for this new journey. I am beyond blessed to be part of an amazing CCA community that are not only my co-workers but also my friends. When I am not teaching, I enjoy decorating, video editing and volunteering my time at Bethesda House and Operation Christmas Child.
Be strong and courageous, do not be dismayed, do not be discouraged for the Lord your God is with you wherever you are!

I am privileged to teach and influence these students, and my goal is to cultivate a lifelong love of learning that will enable them to be productive citizens in the future.
As could be expected, I love reading, especially classics, poetry, and historical fiction. I love to sing and play the guitar, and I lead worship at Calvary Chapel of Boston. I’m also a huge fan of thrifting, the outdoors, puns and dogs!

“I am a mom to two little girls and a little boy, and I love being a mom! This is the first year I am also a CCA parent, as my eldest is currently in preschool. She loves it!

In 2003, the Lord led my wife and me to work with Calvary Chapel of Boston to establish CCA, and in the Fall of 2004, we opened the doors. Serving as headmaster for fourteen years, I witnessed God’s mighty hand and glorious power in building up the school. In the Spring of 2017, it was with a glad heart that I passed on that responsibility to Mr. Hanlon and his godly staff.
Today, I enjoy teaching Finance in the high school where I help the students become financially well-educated before graduating from the school. At CCA, we believe it is imperative that our students know how to manage their money from a biblical perspective.

They are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness. “The LORD is my portion,” says my soul, “Therefore I hope in Him!” The LORD is good to those who wait for Him, to the soul who seeks Him.

I view the opportunity to work with the children as a way to worship and grow the students’ character. Growing up, I learned to play the piano at an early age. By the age of fourteen, I was leading my church’s worship experience. I enjoy the time I have with the students to expose them to God’s love and grace through the avenue of music.
What I love most about CCA is the solid Bible teaching and love expressed by the faculty towards the students. It is a joy to see teachers praying with each other, the students caring for one another and the headmaster reading his Bible.
My husband and I have been married for 18 years, and we have seven children. We consider it a blessing to send our children to CCA.
