Vision

Our Vision

Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy will unleash each student’s God-given gifts through Christ-centered academic excellence. We are devoted to developing the whole person, and instilling a lifelong passion for learning, leading and serving.

Values

Our Core Values

Christ-centeredness:
We believe in following how Christ himself led, served, taught, loved, and lived; we strive to base all we do on His word.
Academic Excellence:
We believe in reflecting we are an academy of learning. It is our primary, but not exclusive, goal to prepare our students academically for college and beyond.
Whole Person:
We believe in recognizing all are gifted by God in unique ways. We believe in developing all forms of spiritual, intellectual, artistic, and athletic gifts in each student to their fullest potential.
Servant Leadership:
We believe in the power of servanthood. Servant leadership will be taught, modeled, and encouraged to all students, staff, and families, so that all are equipped for the situations in life when God calls them to lead.
Outreach/Service:
We believe in modeling Christ in all we do. We will provide opportunities daily and through special events for students, staff, and families to share Christ’s love through service and witnessing to others.
Stewardship:
We believe in acknowledging that we are blessed in many ways. We as a school will model strong fiscal stewardship and will encourage, train, and expect students, staff, and families to be wise and generous stewards over their time, talents, and money.
Value of Each Person:

We believe in the Value of Each Person: Demonstrating biblical equality, we will embrace each individual as a distinct creation of God, ensure an emotionally, socially, and physically safe and nurturing environment, and intentionally enroll a student body, faculty, and staff who reflect the socioeconomic and racial make-up of the community in which we live.


Vibrant Sense of Community:
We believe in acting intentionally. We will foster a vibrant, connected culture of empathy, fellowship, and respect among students, staff, and parents.
Accountability:
We will hold ourselves and each other to the highest standards of integrity, excellence, and constant measurable improvement.
Joyful Spirit:
We believe in having an attitude of gratitude for God’s blessings that are lived out in everyday smiles, laughter, and by celebrating demonstrated character and unique achievements. This results in a contagious joy that connects at the heart level.

Promise Statement

Our Promise Statement

Centered in the shared love of Christ,
Cincinnati Hills Christian Academy is the college-preparatory,
preschool through grade 12 independent school
that inspires and challenges students to discover, hone,
and steward their one-of-a-kind gifts
as they come to know themselves as distinct
and unconditionally loved creations of God.

CHCA’s vibrant, multi-denominational family of learners
creates a sheltering—but not sheltered—
environment where, supporting each other and guided
by expert Christian teachers,
students wrestle with increasingly complex,
timeless, essential questions in order
to strengthen their minds and their faith.

Beginning with the end in mind, CHCA graduates
young adults fully prepared to succeed in college and beyond;
to engage effectively and lovingly with different cultures,
viewpoints, and ideas; and to achieve significant impact
and influence with discerning wisdom, courageous curiosity,
and resilient Christian faith—

where others pull back, they lean into life.
