Distinctively CHA

Reserve a Spot

Campus Preview

Prior to our children entering pre-kindergarten, our family took tours of each of the public and private school offerings in town.  We had a list of questions and non-negotiables that we were considering. Biblical worldview, philosophy of education, methodology, class size, accreditation, test scores, extra-curricular activities, and many other topics filled our list.  As we visited each school, it was evident what each school valued and where each school excelled. No school had every box checked. As the process continued, God revealed His desire for our family. The next question on the list was, “Is there an available spot?” Our family took similar steps as our children went to college, the end result was the same.  Our final question was, “Is there a spot?”

February marks the start of re-enrollment at CHA.  It is an important time in the life of the school. Each year, CHA is blessed to have 92-95% re-enrollment.  Last year, we were blessed to increase our enrollment by 30 students. Last Friday, Mrs. Small and the Admissions Department hosted a Campus Preview Day.  The picture above is a glimpse of God’s blessing of the event. As we make preparations for next year, it is highly recommended that current families re-enroll at their earliest convenience before enrollment is opened to prospective families. It is exciting to see new applications arriving each week for the upcoming school year.

One way prospective families may learn more about the school is by attending our Heritage Banquet on March 31. Families who do not have students enrolled at CHA but would like to learn more about the 2020-21 school year, may attend the banquet for free.  Through the generous donations from our table sponsors, the banquet has been underwritten and the proceeds towards the Heritage Fund will go to the internal needs of the school such as technology, science labs, curriculum development, and elementary playground needs.

Support

There are different ways to identify support at Christian Heritage Academy. For the past thirteen years at CHA, every Wednesday afternoon, the faculty have participated in professional development.Training and collaboration have included curriculum development, new teacher induction, worldview, technology, and Principle Approach education. This time is valuable. This year, CHA’s support staff has regular once-a-month training session on Wednesday afternoons. Mrs. Jennifer Crosby, Director of Business, and Mr. Kyle Smith, Director of Technology, have partnered together to provide our support staff with professional growth opportunities.  We are so grateful for the outstanding men and women that God has brought to CHA. Our support staff does an excellent job of being the school’s first impression. Without their support of the internal needs of the school, our teachers and administrators could not do what they are called to do with students each day.

Another way CHA receives support is through the generous Heritage Banquet table sponsors each year.  By purchasing a table, these patrons contribute to the underwriting of the banquet and commit to filling a table with eight so that others may see what God is doing at CHA.  We are almost half-way to underwriting the entire banquet which will allow all the proceeds raised that evening to go towards the internal needs of the school such as science and technology needs. We would like to thank the following sponsors who have already purchased tables for this year.

CHA All the Way

Varsity Cheer Squad

Recently our elementary, junior high and high school cheerleading squads competed at the national level. The hours of preparation for this level of competition along with their continued commitment to cheer at multiple games each week is astounding. At all three levels, these athletes competed with zeal and brought home many first-place and overall division titles.

This example of commitment is also seen in our teaching and support staff. CHA is accredited through the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI). The accrediting process allows schools to be evaluated against a set of criteria to establish a minimum set of standards to determine the level of excellence. Each accreditation cycle lasts five years with monitoring reports submitted each year. Throughout the 2019-20 school year, our faculty and staff have been preparing for our accreditation visit in February 2020. This preparation has taken weeks to compile the documentation for the visit. Our faculty and staff have worked tirelessly on this important process along with continuing to prepare for their classes each day.

What compels cheerleaders to prepare long hours, basketball players to wake up early, football players to play in harsh conditions, students to study into the late hours of the evening, and faculty and staff members to prepare for accreditation? Is it an expression of school spirit - CHA, All the Way? While true, there is an even greater purpose for this effort. There is a greater prize than a trophy. They are playing to an audience of ONE. 1 Corinthians 9:24 says, “Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but only one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may win.” Christ is the ultimate standard.

As we prepare for our ACSI visit in February, will you please pray for the final preparations for the team visit and that we would be a blessing to the accrediting team members? As we prepare for the Heritage Banquet in March, would you please pray for Dr. Mohler as he prepares for this special evening and for the banquet committee as we plan?

Thank you for investing in CHA. If you have been here for any length of time at all, I hope you too can say, “CHA, All the Way!”
