Christian Heritage Academy Reviews

78 reviews

The 2019-20 year was our children’s first at Christian Heritage Academy (K, 1st, 4th & 6th) and we were warmly welcomed and embraced by families and teachers! CHA embodies Christian education that is excellent, robust, and vibrant.

From a leadership standpoint, those who serve in administration are exceptionally strong listeners and extraordinary examples of what it means to live by high standards of integrity.

The teachers and staff are truly enthusiastic about teaching, and consider their positions as high callings. They encourage students to discover and apply truth, knowledge, and godly wisdom to life. The teachers train students "how to be” (character development, community service, and compassion) as well as "how to work” and "how to achieve."

The most rewarding aspect of CHA is the partnership between the families, school, and churches. We love its strong spirit of camaraderie and the familial sense of love, care, and encouragement!

We have just finished our 8th year at CHA. We have loved our time here! The teachers are so very caring - this has been especially evident throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. They were very much a part of my kids’ lives virtually. They never missed a beat - prayer, academics, fun. They succeeded in offering a challenging yet doable schedule for our kids during this unprecedented season in the Spring of 2020. My kids are cared for and feel valuable. Christian Heritage Academy has so many offerings available: academically, spiritually, socially, and athletically. CHA is constantly striving to improve, which we appreciate in any organization. I feel as though my children are getting a strong Christian foundation to carry with them throughout the rest of their lives. CHA is Christ-centered, academically strong, and the faculty and staff strive to be Living Curriculum Teachers! We could not be more pleased with Christian Heritage Academy!
CHA is much more than just a Christ-centered, academically-excellent educational institution: it's also a welcoming, caring community! Students, parents, and school staff all come together to create an environment that fosters learning while helping the kids develop into lifetime followers of Christ.

We can't stress enough how much Christ is put front-and-center of things at CHA. It permeates everything at the school and is foundational to all that goes on there.

All of this doesn't mean, though, that academics are neglected in any way. We've been extremely pleased with the quality and depth of the learning that our daughter has had over the past 6 years. Her teachers have really brought the best out in her academically and socially. She actually LOVES going to school in the morning!

So, if you're looking for a place where your children can grow in Christ and get a first-rate education, look no further: CHA will not disappoint. You won't regret it!
