I was a charter student at CHA when it opened in 1980 and a member of its third graduating class in 1986. Currently I teach at CHA at the secondary level and am the proud parent of CHA's first second-generation graduate. For 36 years, CHA's strength has always been in its people: at every level our teachers strive to give students the best education we can, always through the lens of Scripture and with an emphasis on spiritual development as well as academic.

I am a secondary science teacher at CHA. I grew up in northern Virginia and went to college in the area around CHA. This school has welcomed me with open arms and made me a part of its family. Their values and traditions routed in the idea that students should be taught a biblical world view made it easy for me to become a Knight! P.S. My students are wondeful! They are kind, respectful, and hard working. They make coming to work fun and I try to making learning fun for them too!

I am so thankful for CHA! My son is going into the fourth grade and he has attended since pre-k. He has loved each year, and his A honor roll grades are a testimony to the devoted staff and small classroom environment. I also am thankful for a deep commitment to teach every subject with a true Biblical worldview.

What a blessing CHA has been to our family! We transferred my oldest daughter in 7th grade, she needed a place that was intimate and where her talents and gifts could soar! My son started out in Pre-k and loved it since day one. With the smaller class size, students are very close and able to do so much! Having experienced both public and private education, what a peace it is as a parent to know my children are being taught Christian material by Godly faculty and staff. I give thanks they can pray in school and learn Christ like character and values.

We have two children, one in 1st grade and one in K4 at Christian Heritage Academy. I am overjoyed with our decision to provide this type of education and atmosphere for our children because this school exemplifies exactly what we value as a family. At CHA, it is obvious that the teachers are compassionate and dedicated to providing an academically challenging curriculum and biblical foundation for each student. My children love their teachers. One of the most exciting things for me, as a mother, is to see how much my 1st grader has developed socially in a smaller class size versus her previous year in public school. Christian Heritage Academy is a huge blessing to our family and we look forward to watching our children grow up, putting the Lord first.

My fourth child is currently a sophomore at Christian Heritage Academy. My other three children are all alumni of CHA. CHA is a school where academics are excellent, integrity is stressed, discipline is truly purposeful, and the Christian faith permeates everything they do. Their sporting programs teach excellence and teamwork. Their standardized test scores are consistently above national averages. We have been so blessed to have our children attend Christian Heritage.

Our prayerful and trusting decision to send our children to Christian Heritage Academy was based upon God's Word. A pivotal verse was Colossians 2:3, which speaking of Jesus Christ states, "In whom are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge." We reasoned that since ALL the treasures of wisdom and knowledge are in Jesus Christ, our children should be educated where He is honored, rather than where He is purposefully excluded. Our children received an excellent education from teachers who not only knew the subject matter but also knew the LORD.

I am so thankful that the Lord has led our family to Christian Heritage Academy. This is our first year at CHA and am in admiration of the dedication the teachers have to providing each student with challenging academics and biblical knowledge. The feeling you get when you set foot on this campus is a feeling of comfort and peace knowing that your children are in good hands. God is doing great things at this school. The administration at CHA are exactly who you want to be managing a Christian School. They exhibit dedication to the Lord and passion for providing a Christian education that will prepare students for success in further education and/or employment.
