Being at student at CHS for 10 years I have gotten very close and accustomed to the ways of the school. It truly is a second home for me. All the teachers are personally invested into the students and at this school I have gotten to know people who I believe I will know for the rest of my life. We are all a very close knit family.

The teachers at this school are amazing! They really care about you, and are always willing to do anything to help you learn the subject. The extracurricular activities keep us busy, but they are so much fun and really help get the full experience, and help us create real relationships with other students and teachers.

CHS is overall a great school! It is an awesome place that surrounds you with faculty who will personally invest in and help you grow in your academic and personal life. They have great sports and drama departments that push and challenge us kids to grow in more ways then one and to expand and discover different talents and abilities in a positive atmosphere

I love my school! This school is amazingly well managed! Without violence, with Love, peers and teachers live in a harmony! My favorite part of it is when teachers do the morning devotions and share what she has gone through lately and we pray for her or who needs prayers. You will definitely be able to seek God''s glory through attending this school. This school is Full of Grace

The school has an integrated state of the art technology by leveraging classroom learning to a global world. There is an exceptional offering of AP and UConn courses. The faculty is always focused on ensuring students are successful. EXCELLENT SCHOOL

We have two children at CHS and have been very pleased with their experience. Like at many private schools in this part of CT, academics at CHS are very rigorous (if this helps to put it in perspective, there are Yale faculty who send their kids to CHS). But what makes the school special is the emphasis on nurturing the students'' spiritual and character development. The dedication of the faculty and staff to each child is part of the school''s mission to partner with parents to shape the students'' hearts and minds to become more Christ-like and help them find their true calling in life. The school offers a wide variety of sports, music/arts clubs and community service programs, as well as really unique and enriching travel opportunities to places all over the world. We are so glad we found this gem of a school!

I am a student at CHS nothing more to say, I would say go check it out right now if you are considering what would be the best for your child. It''s worth your time of just even checking it out.

Its only been two years since I moved in, but I know CHS is where I want to graduate. The teachers here are incredible. Everyday they surprise us. There are so many different activities that we have here to participate in. Yes, the academia is a little tough, but its the type of challenging that makes it worthwhile. Having a Christian backbone to everything we do is amazingly reassuring. I absolutely love it when the whole student body gets together. God''s really doing something special here.

No school is perfect -- but this one comes pretty close. We looked for an elementary program with a program that would challenge our daughter that was reading well above her first grade level. The academics and clubs for elementary students are great - sports, lego, chess, crafts, games, etc.

We love the school. We have 2 girls in grades 5 and 2. The academic quality is excellent. In addition the all round development and sense of community is remarkable. The staff and faculty are truly dedicated and selfless.

The dining and nutrition program at our school is pretty amazing. We get produce from local farms, fresh-cooked meats at the deli bar, home-made soups, and growth-hormone-free milk. We eat well!

Last year we felt lead to pull our high school er out of public school and place her in a christian school. Upon our first visit to Christian Heritage, we felt like we were home. The faculty helped to bring her up to speed, seeing that our transfer came after the school year had already begun. She continues to be challenged, which we can now see was lacking at her previous school.

I am from China and I am an international student at CHS. To me, CHS is a great school, the teachers are very helpful and nice. The school focuses on the academics a lot and in the meanwhile it nurtures the spiritual growth for each individual. I like this school a lot and I especially thankful for all the teachers and administrators! May God bless CHS. Jian

Christian Heritage School is top notch quality school! The staff and faculty are amazing, loving, devoted Christian people who are dedicated to producing Christian Scholars! The academic program is constantly challenging the students appropriately to achieve academic excellence! The intimate class sizes are optimal for learning! The teachers do an excellent job in communicating with parents, as do the higher leadership. There are many opportunities for students to get involved in extracurricular activities: art classes, chess, lego and sports clubs after school for the lower school; fine arts/theater, lego robotics, and sports programs for the middle and upper school. Parents work together as a community to benefit the greater good of the school! Overall it is a wonderful school that so much to offer!

We are so thankful for Christian Heritage School! Our three children are receiving an education that goes beyond first-rate academics. They are thriving in an environment that teaches development of the whole person to his fullest potential. The academics are challenging, but in addition to that, a sense of community and spiritual growth are also stressed. We've been very pleased with the faculty over the years. They make themselves available to the students to help them understand a topic covered in the classroom or provide guidance for a life issue. Parents are welcome to help in the classroom. Many sports and extra-curricular activities are offered as well.

Christian Heritage has proven to be an excellent school for our children who are high achievers. Our two oldest children went through kindergarten and all twelve grades at CHS. They were appropriately challenged academically so that they were able to make high scores on their college aptitude tests and be accepted into their first-choice for college. The school also offered a nice choice of extracurricular activities to allow our children to explore involvement in non-academic interests.
