Find your Place and Pursue Your Gifts

Since your child will spend five thousand one hundred hours in class during their high school years, the school you choose will play a powerful role in shaping who they become. What will these next four years bring? Will both the curriculum and the environment prepare them for college? Can they develop and explore their gifts and talents? Or maybe discover new ones? What are the students like? What makes this school different? Where will they go from here?

A CHCA education is like no other. Our students conduct independent research projects, run small businessesperform on stage, and win in athletics. They get outside the walls of the classroom during Intersession, learn to prepare foods directly from the Greenhouse in the Teaching Kitchen, and serve hundreds of hours at home and abroad. Through it all they are challenged to grow spiritually and develop a resilient faith.

Get to know us by walking the halls, shadowing a student, and reading the facts and figures. We can’t wait to get to know you, too.
