Most of the colleges in the United States that started over three hundred years ago were originally Bible-proclaiming schools. Harvard and Yale (originally Puritan) and Princeton (originally Presbyterian) once had rich Christian purposes (Hodge, 2007). Within the first one hundred years, none had continued to uphold their original doctrinal stance within the first one hundred years.
Last week, the kindergarten and first-grade classes celebrated the 100th day of school. Counting to a hundred and dressing up like one who is a hundred were just a few of the festivities. Christian Heritage Academy is fifty-one years old this year. It is halfway to the one-hundred mark. I am thankful for the men and women that God has called to work at CHA. Their commitment to CHA’s mission and vision for over fifty years is the foundation for the next generation of students. It is our prayer that God will continue to protect CHA and give us a zealousness to pursue His vision and mission for our school for the next fifty years and until Christ returns.
