We are Family!
Whether you graduated from CHA or not, even if you only attended for one year, we consider you part of the CHA family. We also consider former CHA parents, faculty, and staff as part of our extended family. We hope you connect with us, engage with other alumni, and pray for us as we seek to further CHA’s ongoing mission.
Read on for the latest alumni activities and opportunities. Also, please use the buttons below to let us know how we can pray for you or update your whereabouts and life events. We can’t wait to hear from you!
September 29-October 1
There are several fun ways for you to connect no matter where you’re located! Share a short video greeting to be shared in person and on social media, attend the Homecoming 2022 Alumni Zoom Party, participate in person at CHA’s Friday Night Festivities, meet up in the auditorium for a Fine Arts Reunion and encore showing of Beauty & the Beast (2016), and/or come to the Glencoe Beach on Saturday morning for an encouraging morning of prayer and refreshments with alumni! Read all the details below.
Share a Video Greeting
EXTENDED THROUGH 10/7/22
We are creating another alumni video montage to be shared with the CHA family in person and on social media. We would love to include a brief video greeting from as many of our beloved alumni as possible, including you.
In under 5 minutes, you can visit our Tribute site, record your 20-second greeting, and submit it to be included in this special video. We’re hoping to hear from as many people as possible who still have the Lion heart beating inside them, with a simple greeting from wherever in the world you are now.
Your participation will be an encouragement to current students as well as our CHA family at large. We look forward to hearing from you and learning where God has led you to now!
Please spread the word and record your greeting by October 7!

Join in for virtual fellowship and fun, hosted by CHA’s legendary Robin Russell. After some large group greetings and time together, we’ll break the party up in to rooms with students who were at CHA around the same time. Spread the word and invite as many former classmates as you can!
All alumni are welcome, as are grandparents, moms, dads, and students (spouses and kiddos, too)! No matter where you are, near or far, we’d love to see you. We can’t wait to celebrate and reconnect!
Just for Fun: Show your school spirit by wearing your CHA colors and gear. For old time’s sake, consider enjoying Hebrew National hotdogs and/or Lou Malnati’s pizza for dinner during the party.

How Can We Pray for You?
Are you facing any particular challenges? Please let us know your needs, and we will stand with you in prayer! Your prayer request will be shared with these current CHA groups that regularly pray for the needs of CHA and its families: Monday morning CHA Mom’s Prayer, Friday morning CHA Mens’ Prayer, and the Alumni Relations Team. We’ll also include your request in our “Morning Notes” email that is received by our Faculty and Staff each day.
