Christian Heritage Academy has been established to meet the educational needs of children in a Christ-centered environment, with dedicated Christian teachers, in a spiritual, academic atmosphere. Our school uses the Accelerated Christian Education program, which is based on Biblical philosophy, individually-prescribed, self-instructional curriculum, and an advanced system of motivated learning.
During the course of a school year, CHA uses these eight characteristics to help each student:
- All of our teachers are born-again Christians, with testimonies that honor our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
- Each class begins the day with prayer and Bible reading.
- Weekly chapel services are conducted for the entire student body, providing Christ-honoring music and a Bible message that encourages Godly living.
- Each level of academic work examines 60 character traits of Christ in great detail.
- Students are taught that hard work produces excellence.
- Students are expected to take responsibility for personal academic progress.
- Christian Heritage Academy proudly uses the Accelerated Christian Education curriculum.
- Our curriculum presents "mastery-based learning", meaning that students cannot move forward without demonstrating at least an 80% comprehension level of the current lesson.
- Each student's learning level and ability are taken into consideration, allowing the curriculum to be a custom fit for your child.
- Younger students utilize computer reinforcement for reading comprehension skills, foundational math skills, and word building.
- Older students learn the latest Microsoft Office skills in Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and Windows OS.
- At CHA, we realize that every child's development is different - physically, intellectually, and socially.
- For example, a sixth grader might read anywhere from a fourth to eighth-grade level. Math skills could also be higher or lower than their current grade.
- The ACE curriculum diagnoses learning abilities and puts students in the appropriate grade in each subject.
- The classroom environment must be conducive to learning for true learning to take place.
- Using a system of marks and merits, a quiet, organized, loving environment is provided at CHA; each classroom is in full control of a teacher at all times.
- Our curriculum and methods of instruction allow parents to see immediately how their students are progressing, and provide clear instructions on how to help at home.
- Each class takes periodic field trips; we encourage parents to attend whenever possible!
- It is our belief that America is great because she was founded upon Biblical principles.
- Patriotism is highly stressed at CHA. Each day begins with the Pledge of Allegiance and students are encouraged throughout the year to become productive citizens in today's world.
