Academically, Christian Heritage Academy is a “traditional” school in that, at the elementary level, we offer the basics of reading (with an emphasis on phonetics), writing, arithmetic, grammar, vocabulary, history, and science. We recognize that each student is unique in his/her personal interest, educational levels, and especially in their learning styles. Our goal is to stimulate learning in every student through recreational opportunities, field trips, hands-on activities, and sound teaching.
Curriculum - K4 & K5
Our K4 and K5 program is a developmentally appropriate, Biblically-based academic program that includes Bible time (with stories, songs, and memory verses), letter time (which introduces each letter and sounds), number time (with lots of fun counting!), and even some science and health activities. We also have library, art, music, and physical education.
Painting, gluing, cutting, working with play-dough, building with blocks, and even some planting and cooking activities are all part of the fun and learning experience. Combine all of this with lots of outside play time, snack, lunch, and a time of quiet rest, and you can see that the days in our K4 and K5 program are full.
Curriculum 1 - 5
A day in our elementary school includes laughter, prayer, rigorous academics, creative lessons, spiritual guidance, music and art, lots of praise, and celebrating success. Our elementary program provides academic excellence with an emphasis on Christian character development. Creativity, thinking, listening and writing skills are all encouraged in a loving and caring Christ-centered environment. Core subjects include Bible, Phonics, Grammar, Reading, Spelling, Mathematics, Social Studies, and Science. The educational experience also includes weekly attendance at Music, Physical Education, Library, Spanish, and Art classes. Additionally, students are inspired through chapels where the students can grow in their faith through worship, skits, prayer, special speakers and character development. In addition, we offer elementary students the opportunity to compete with other ACSI schools in spelling, math, and science competitions.
At Christian Heritage Academy, our commitment to training students for a life of godly service through a college preparatory curriculum and sound Biblical truth is fulfilled when our graduates enter higher education fully prepared academically, socially, and especially spiritually. Our small class sizes, caring and committed Christian teachers and rigorous academic program contribute greatly to this success. Secondary students are encouraged to become involved in extra-curricular activities, athletics, student government, ACSI competitions (math, science, and writing) and more. Pep rallies, weekly chapel services, assemblies and special projects are an integral part of a student’s routine at Christian Heritage Academy.
Curriculum 6 – 8
At Christian Heritage Academy, sixth grade marks the transition point from a self-contained classroom to a rotating class schedule typical of high school curriculum. Students are given the opportunity to grow as they experience the varied subjects, faculty, and teaching styles. Our rotating class schedule includes homeroom, seven classes, and a lunch period. Each morning, students report to their homeroom teacher who is assigned to them for the academic year. This teacher will serve as the grade level sponsor in addition to being the central point of contact for school announcements and administrative tasks related to that grade level.
Our middle school program is designed to provide a balanced curriculum that will equip each student with the academic, social, and spiritual skills necessary to enter high school. The sixth grade core classes consist of Bible, English, history, math, general science, and physical education. The seventh grade core classes consist of Bible, English, history, math (Pre-Algebra), life science, and physical education. The eighth grade core classes consist of Bible, English, history, math (Algebra), life science, and physical education. In addition to the core classes, students are offered experiential learning classes such as music, art, and computer.
Curriculum 9 – 12
Our high school program is primarily college preparatory in nature yet follows the traditional scope and sequence for grades 9 – 12. Because our students are college-bound, we focus on implementing a curriculum that will equip them to achieve Post High School (PHS) levels of academic excellence before they ever reach the doors of a college or university.
Our curriculum includes the use of textbooks from Abeka, Bob Jones, and Saxon publishing to facilitate a Christ-centered curriculum. We are very proud to offer advanced classes in the majority of our core classes including English, math, Bible, and science. In the discipline of mathematics; Algebra I/II, geometry, pre-calculus, and calculus are offered. In the discipline of science; physical science, Biology I/II, chemistry, and physics are offered. In the discipline of English; American literature, British literature, and Writing I/II are offered. As a balancing component, we offer electives in American sign language, computer, art, music, woodshop, yearbook, and Spanish – just to name a few. Our 12th grade Bible curriculum, Understanding The Times, is one of most influential curriculum in use today to help shape a student’s Biblical worldview.
