CHA Board Chairman Andy Bulluck said, “We are indeed delighted to again be named Niche’s top Christian school in Illinois!

We are grateful to God and for the hard work and dedication of our faculty, staff, and students who made this possible.”

Located on a 15-acre campus at 315 Waukegan Road in Northfield, CHA has served thousands of families from northern Chicagoland since 1984, providing an exemplary Christian education to students from preschool to 12th grade.

“At CHA, we believe strongly in partnering with parents as we live out our mission of raising lifetime followers of Jesus Christ. Working together, we impact our students every day in ways that strengthen their faith and prepare them for their future,” Bulluck said.

With spacious classrooms and small class sizes, CHA is able to offer in-person instruction while meeting the COVID safety regulations of the Illinois Department of Public Health.
