Welcome to the Christian Heritage Academy website. This is a wonderful place to begin, and I thank you for taking the time to do so. I also invite you to visit our beautiful 15-acre campus in Northfield. An in-person meeting is always richer, and it will allow you to personally witness what makes this school so special!

Founded in 1984, CHA remains true to its founding commitment to partner with parents and the local church to equip lifetime learners and followers of Jesus Christ. The formative years are integral to building a solid foundation of faith, and we are honored to be part of this profound task while providing an exemplary education from Preschool through Grade 12.

Our faculty and staff consists of over 80 dedicated Christian men and women who are committed to providing a Christ-centered education with excellence, while at the same time seeking to develop the spiritual life and character of all our students. Your child will not go unnoticed or be unloved at CHA.

In 2020, CHA has grown to an enrollment of over 400 students drawing from 145 congregations, 55 communities, and over 200 families from Chicago to southern Wisconsin and west past Barrington. We are diverse yet united as one in the Lord Jesus Christ.

Please reach out to our Admissions Office, or any of us, if we can assist you in any way. I look forward to meeting you and your family soon!

In Christ,


Dr. Hutz H. Hertzberg
