As a Christ centered, academically excellent, life transforming school, Christian Heritage Academy has a firm commitment to supporting Christian families. Our distinctives are evident through our Mission Statement, Philosophy of Education, and Core Values.
Christian Heritage Academy, an independent, parent-governed school, offers an exemplary education based on biblical values to children of Christian families, equipping them to be lifetime followers of Jesus Christ.
Established in 1984, Christian Heritage Academy (CHA) was established on the firm foundation of Jesus Christ. Our Mission Statement, which commends us to provide not only an “exemplary education” but to also equip children “to be lifetime followers of Jesus Christ,” is the impetus for all we do at CHA. We begin with the Bible as the basis for learning and our Philosophy of Education and Core Values guide us as our 100% Christian faculty teach from a comprehensive liberal arts curriculum, using the best available textbooks and resources.
“Living Curriculum” Teachers
A CHA education includes a rigorous and comprehensive curriculum. However, it is the school’s “Living Curriculum” teachers that make the student experience both academically excellent and spiritually formative, as students enjoy the freedom to explore and learn in a nurturing, Christ-centered environment. At every level students are challenged to consider the question, “What does God’s Word mean in my life?” Our articulate, mature Christian teachers both teach and model critical and biblical thinking, passion for God’s Word, and impacting the school, community, and world for the glory of God.
Christian Heritage Academy seeks to come alongside Christian parents and the church to build into the lives of the next generation of believers. By providing an educational experience consistent with the biblical values that are taught in both the home and at church, a three-way partnership among home, church, and school is created. CHA is continuing to develop relationships with pastors and youth leaders at local churches to offer resources and support.
The Bible gives clear guidance for parents on how their children should be taught. They are to be consistently raised in the training and instruction of the Lord (Eph:6-4), growing in wisdom and knowledge in Christ. One of our founding parents, Dr. Wayne Grudem, PhD, wrote an excellent article highlighting scripture that parents should consider when making educational decisions for their children.
