CHCA challenges me to think about the kind of person I want to be and the impact I can have on our world.CHCA Upper School Student

Engaging Heads, Hearts, and Hands

Faith & Service is the soul of everything that happens at CHCA, and each day brings new lessons in what it means to follow Jesus’ example.

Sometimes we learn these lessons by reading a book about the early church, worshiping in chapel, or lending an ear or prayer to a fellow classmate. Sometimes we learn them while serving others. Simply put, in order to spark meaningful thought and growth, spiritual life at CHCA engages our heads (learning about the Bible and Christian history), our hearts (attending chapel, joining prayer groups, and talking about our faith) and our hands (reaching out in service to others). We engage in God’s world, pray together, and live out our faith through service to others.

I believe what truly sets our institution apart is our potential to create Christian leaders ready to go out and shine their light in the world. chca board of trustees president
