Released Time Christian Education

We bring the Bible to public school students!

The Released Time program adds private school perks to a public school education. We provide a chapel-like experience by teaching weekly Bible-based lessons to 3rd-6th graders.

“I believe no man was ever early instructed in the truths of the Bible without having been made wiser or better, by the early operation of these impressions upon his mind.
– Dr. Benjamin Rush
Who We Are

Get to know us

We are parents, grandparents and members of the local church dedicated to sharing the Word of God with elementary school students across the Chino Valley Unified School District.

Founded in 1998, Chino Valley Released Time Christian Education is a volunteer-led non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. CVCE started by serving two schools and 11 students, but have since expanded our reach to encompass all 22 public elementary schools, impacting thousands of students.

Your child’s safety is a priority, so we ensure every volunteer is vetted and security-cleared.

How We Help

Positive Life Lessons for Every Student

It’s our hope that every child who joins us on the Bible Bus walks away knowing they are priceless in the eyes of God. Through our weekly lessons, we aim to:

  • Create a growing awareness of the caring love of God
  • Lead the child into a personal relationship with Jesus
  • Present the Bible as a guide for daily living
  • Develop within the child a Christian moral and spiritual code
  • Encourage the child to participate in a local church
