Each year CHA hosts an annual golf tournament. The event supports CHA athletics. Anyone who has ever attended or participated in athletics at CHA knows that sports are a tool to train character and also a platform to share the gospel with others. This year the proceeds from the tournament will go towards the Ralph Bullard Training Facility. This facility will be used for games and practices for basketball and volleyball, indoor elementary and junior high PE, and offseason practice for spring sports. Plans have an artificial surface that can be used for baseball and soccer. The facility will also offer space for large events such as the Fall Festival and pep assemblies.
If you would like to sponsor or participate in the tournament, you may do so by clicking this link. Any sponsor registering by August 6 will appear in the 2021-22 Athletic Program. Here are the first of our tournament sponsors:
Hidden Trails Golf and Country Club
Hole sponsorships may also be purchased at the tournament. Each hole sponsor may designate $100 of the cost to go towards a student’s sixth-grade (Washington DC) or Senior Capstone (Boston) trip. To sponsor a hole and help a student, please use this link.
Thank you for praying for our athletes and coaches.
Christian Heritage Academy was founded in 1972 by Sunnyside Baptist Church. It was under the leadership of Pastor Harry Boydston that the congregation felt led to start a Christian school which would be used to restore education to its original intent. From the beginning, the school’s guiding verse has been Isaiah 58:12, “Those from among you will rebuild the ancient ruins. You will raise up the age-old foundations, and you will be called the repairer of the breach, the restorer of the paths in which to dwell.”
In 2017, the leadership of CHA wrote a fourteen-year plan called it, Vision 2031. This vision outlines the growth and development of CHA for the next fourteen years. Part of the plan is to train the next generation of Christian educators. Four years ago, we began RestorED Educators’ Conference to help accomplish this goal. The purpose of the conference is to train educators in worldview and current pedagogy. As a result of our Professional Development Endowment, we are also able to offer world-class speakers to train. Last year, we had over fifty educators from various Christian schools and home-schools. The two-day conference is open to any parent, educator, or lay person. Here is the schedule for the conference. The cost is $40 which includes breakfast, lunch and snacks for two days, two books and conference materials. Here is the link to pay.
This year, we are honored to have Mrs. Nancy Pearcey as our guest speaker. She is the author of Love Thy Body: Answering Hard Questions about Life and Sexuality. Her earlier books include The Soul of Science, Saving Leonardo, Finding Truth, and two ECPA Gold Medallion Award Winners: How Now Shall We Live (coauthored with Harold Fickett and Chuck Colson) and Total Truth. Her books have been translated into nine languages. She is professor and scholar in residence at Houston Baptist University. A former agnostic, Pearcey has spoken at universities such as Princeton, Stanford, USC, and Dartmouth. She was highlighted as one of the five top women apologists by Christianity Today and was hailed in The Economist as “America's preeminent evangelical Protestant female intellectual.”
We would love for you to attend or to invite anyone who might be interested. Thank you for praying for our educators as we seek to restore.
For years, a blue door separated the elementary school from the secondary school. Sixth graders would look with anticipation towards the day when they would pass through the blue door to the other side. The blue door symbolized a rite of passage, a sign of growing up, and more increased liberty. While the door is no longer painted blue, becoming a secondary student still holds great excitement. Last week, the secondary administration hosted the tenth annual “Go Big Blue—Secondary Orientation.” Students and parents visited each seventh grade classroom and heard from administration and current seventh graders on the upcoming opportunities of a secondary student. From opening lockers to meeting their senior buddies, our new seventh graders enjoyed a wonderful afternoon together.
The event is supported by our parents and PURPOSE. Monies are provided by PURPOSE for the event. Sixth grade parents help decorate the cafeteria and organize the food. CHA is extremely blessed to have such supportive parents who give of their time, resources, and talents in a variety of ways. Parent involvement has long been recognized as an indicator of increased student achievement. Our mission at CHA is to support their home and the church in building a solid foundation in the life of each student. We are blessed to partner with you in your student’s education.
As the school year draws to a close, please come out and support our golf, tennis, baseball, and soccer teams as they play in the state tournaments. Let’s “Go Big Blue!”
