Dear CHA Students and Families,

We often say, “excellence in simple ways at CHA” as a reminder to ourselves that being better is a matter of paying attention to the small details.  It’s that very mindset that’s driving our efforts to make small improvements to our remote learning program to better your student’s learning experience.  

Mrs. Hacker and I took some time to put together a video to share the improvements we’re making to RLP 2.0 beginning this week.  I think you’ll find the adjustments and additional resources very helpful as we continue along this journey. Your communication and collaboration have been invaluable to this process, so I want to thank you for investing in our partnership and this program.  Please watch this short video at your earliest convenience.

She holds a Master’s Degree in Education from Radford University and is certified by the Virginia Department of Education to teach students (K4-12).

Dear CHA Community,

It was such a blessing to see you and many of our students during pick-up day earlier this week. Your smiling faces brought more warmth to my heart and soul than the sunshine did that day. Thank you for your continued partnerships and ongoing encouragement.

We love you deeply and miss you dearly. Enjoy your weekend, and the rest of the Easter break!

April 03, 2020

Dear CHA Community,

Thinking back to early March, I’m sure none of us expected to be in the situation we’re in right now.  After reflecting on all that has taken place in this short amount of time, I am incredibly grateful for our dedicated CHA team, our diligent students,  and our strong parent partnerships.  Through the Lord’s strength and guidance, I’m confident we will come out of this time more #UKNIGHTED than ever! 

To continue this momentum and help our students obtain the credits and concepts needed for progression, we are planning to launch our Remote Learning Plan 2.0 on Tuesday, April 14th. 

Click Here to Watch The RLP 2.0 Presentation Video (35 min)  [Very Important You Need]

I realize that this video covers a lot of material, so I’m providing these RLP 2.0 Presentation Slides for you to access as needed. 

Once you’ve viewed the video, please complete this RLP 2.0 Response Form no later than Sunday, April 5th IF you have any questions or if you would like to be a non-digital student.

It is our goal to remain #UKNIGHTED and maintain a strong school community during this challenging time. I want to encourage you and your family to stay connected through the following:

Once again, I want to thank you for your ongoing encouragement, prayers, and gracious partnership as we navigate these uncharted waters.  We are confident that our sovereign God has us all in the palm of His hand.

3.27.20 Announcements & Letter

March 27, 2020
By Public Relations

Dear CHA Community,

Congratulations on completing the first week of remote learning! Thank you for working hard and working together to maintain a #UKNIGHTED mindset in our school community during this time of remote learning.

Here are a few changes for next week:

Assignments will be due by the end of the week on Friday, April 3rd, rather than daily. Please make use of this flexibility to complete assignments during the most optimal times for your student and family throughout the week.
 

Hard copy assignments must be delivered to the school on Saturday, April 4th.  Students who are/have been unable to submit work digitally (email, Remind, photo) to their teachers must drop off their RLP Packet, with hard copies of their assignments, in the RLP Drop/Pickup Box on campus. The plastic bin will be clearly labeled and located on the front porch of the Castle.
 

Wednesday, April 1st, will now be a Teacher Workday.  Faculty, staff, and administrators will use this day to collaborate and begin preparations for the next period of remote learning that will start after Easter Break. Therefore, teachers will be unavailable for any virtual office hours for that day.
 

RLP Presentation on Friday, April 3rd -- Next Friday, I’ll be sharing a special presentation to discuss, in detail, the next phase of our Remote Learning Plan and other important information about finishing the year.  We will announce a time and methods to attend the presentation early next week.

In closing, I want to humbly encourage you to attend one of the many virtual worship services, so many churches in our area are offering.  Community is God’s design for his children, even during this time of social distancing. Have a blessed and restful weekend!

3.25.20 Announcements & Letter

March 25, 2020
By Public Relations

Dear CHA Students & Families, 

Today, we find ourselves living a new normal in the wake of the Coronavirus’ impact. Nevertheless, the Lord is good, His love endures forever, and His faithfulness extends to all generations. It’s time for us to move forward and finish the year well.

To continue planning, we need your feedback.  Please complete this critical CHA Remote Learning Survey by 3 p.m. tomorrow. We will finish the year through a revised Remote Learning Program (RLP), which will allow students to work from home and earn the grades and credits needed to move to the next grade level or graduate. Our administrative team will use your feedback to adjust the parameters and expectations of our current RLP to implement a feasible and sustainable solution to complete the year beginning on April 14th. Next week, I will produce a video to share with our CHA community that will explain our revised RLP. 

Thank you for your continued patience, prayers, and cooperation during this time of transition. I’m confident that the Lord will grant us success as we start to rebuild. God bless!

Sincerely, 

Tony Quist

3.23.20 - Letter from Mr. Quist

March 23, 2020
By Public Relations

Dear CHA Students & Families,

As you may already be aware, Governor Northam has ordered schools (public and private) closed for the remainder of the school year. Understandably, this announcement generates many questions for you and us as well. We are fervently praying for the Lord to reveal the next steps for CHA and believing, by faith, that He will answer those prayers according to His will.

Our administrative team met this evening to discuss this situation and will be taking immediate steps to gather information and evaluate our options. Tomorrow, we plan to seek guidance from the Virginia Department of Education and the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) on a variety of issues, including graduation requirements and verified credits, continuity of learning, grades, and GPA. Additionally, please look for a family survey to be sent out to you later this week. This survey will provide us with critical information about our students and families as we work to put a plan in place for our school.

Thank you for your continued patience and prayers. We will provide another update as soon as possible. In the meantime, let’s continue to work together to complete our current Remote Learning Program.

Stronger together,
 

Tony Quist

School Administrators Announce Remote Learning Program

March 17, 2020
By Public Relations

Dear CHA Community,

Thank you very much for the encouraging words and feedback that you have shared with us since announcing our decision to implement a Remote Learning Program last week.  One parent said, “Thanks for all of your hard work and dedication to protecting and supporting our children! God Bless!”  It’s such a blessing to work with parent partners like this during such a challenging time.

Looking ahead, we understand that educating at home will require adjustments to your family’s schedule and routine.  Our faculty has been working diligently during this week of workdays (thankful for unused snow days) to prepare lessons that contain valuable content and assignments that can be completed in a reasonable amount of time at home -- no more than 3.5 hours total per day. After observing the professionalism, creativity, and commitment our faculty, staff, and administrators have displayed while developing this program, I truly believe we’re doing everything we can to give you and your students everything you need to successfully complete our Remote Learning Program. We are in this together.  

As we move into our Remote Learning Program next week, here are some essential details:

  • Visit CHAKNIGHTS.ORG/REMOTE for full program details, requirements, and lesson downloads for our Remote Learning Program
  • Make plans to pick up your child’s RLP Packet and resources in the Castle Cafe on Wednesday, March 18 anytime between 12 p.m. - 6 p.m.
  • RLP assignments and Teacher Office Hours will begin on Monday, March 23rd and end on Friday, April 3rd
  • Questions should be directed to the teachers first and then to Mrs. Hacker at jhacker@chaknights.org as needed

At this time, we plan to return to campus as soon as we are safely able to do so following our Easter Break, April 6th - 13th.  There will be no remote learning or support during that week. Instead, we encourage everyone to take that time to rest, recover, and focus on the glorious resurrection of our loving savior, Jesus Christ!

In closing, I want to thank you again for your prayers, encouragement, grace, and understanding as we move into this new territory together. We step forward with trust and not fear because we know that God is good, and He will continue to do great things in our school community through this experience!

May the Lord guide our hearts, minds, and actions as we walk the path He has set before us. 

Stronger Together, 

Tony Quist

CHA Announces School Closure and Remote Learning Plan

March 13, 2020
By Public Relations

CHA’s leadership team assembled this morning to address a response to growing COVID-19 concerns and formulated a closure and remote learning plan effective Monday, March 16th.

“Within our school community, we know that many of our students have direct and daily contact with family members in vulnerable segments of our population including older adults (60+) and individuals with underlying health problems. As Christians, it is important for us to act out of love and responsibility for each other, our neighbor and the larger community,” said Mr. Quist, Head of School

CHA’s primary goals at this time are to increase social distancing within the school community and continue educating their students through a brief two-week period of Remote Learning ahead of their scheduled Easter Break. 

CHA has initiated the following plan for Remote Learning through Monday, April 13th:

Teacher Workdays (No School): Monday, March 16th - Friday, March 20th -- our faculty and staff will use these days to prepare for a two-week period of Remote Learning

Resources Pickup: Friday, March 20th from 12:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. -- families may visit the school during this designated time to pick up the resources, books, and materials teachers have assembled for their students to complete the two-week Remote Learning period

Remote Learning Period: Monday, March 23rd - Friday, April 3rd

Easter Break (No School): Monday, April 6th - Monday, April 13th

ALL EVENTS will be canceled through Friday, April 3rd and rescheduled as possible throughout the remainder of the year

In a recent letter to the school community, Mr. Quist stated, “Scripture commands us repeatedly, “Do not be afraid.” At the same time, we are encouraged to “understand the times and know what to do”. We choose not to react out of fear or hysteria but based on a realistic recognition that this situation requires us to protect others, particularly those in our community who are most vulnerable and to aid in efforts to “flatten the curve” to slow the spread of the virus so our healthcare system is not overloaded beyond capacity.” 

CHA recognizes that this is a developing situation and will continue to monitor, evaluate, and adjust plans accordingly in the days ahead.

Brief Period of Remote Learning to Begin the Fourth Quarter

March 13, 2020
By Public Relations

Dear CHA Community,

As our school leadership team assembled this morning to address a response to growing COVID-19 concerns, I asked the Lord to grant us clear direction and wisdom to know and follow His will for CHA at this time.  He was faithful to answer those prayers and worked within our team to produce a plan that ensures the continuity of education for our students and assists with ongoing efforts to reduce the impact of the virus.

We believe that COVID-19 represents a significant public health risk, especially to those in vulnerable segments of our populations including older adults (60+) and individuals with underlying health problems.  Within our school community, we know that many of our students have direct and daily contact with family members in those vulnerable segments. As Christians, it is important for us to act out of love and responsibility for each other, our neighbor and the larger community. 

Scripture commands us repeatedly, “Do not be afraid.” At the same time, we are encouraged to “understand the times and know what to do”. We choose not to react out of fear or hysteria but based on a realistic recognition that this situation requires us to protect others, particularly those in our community who are most vulnerable and to aid in efforts to “flatten the curve” to slow the spread of the virus so our healthcare system is not overloaded beyond capacity. 

Our primary goals at this time are to increase social distancing within our school community and continue educating our students as we begin the fourth and final quarter of the school year.  Confidently, we will pursue these goals through a brief two-week period of Remote Learning ahead of our scheduled Easter Break. 

Therefore, we have initiated the following plan for Remote Learning through Monday, April 13th:

Teacher Workdays (No School): Monday, March 16th - Friday, March 20th -- our faculty and staff will use these days to prepare for a two-week period of Remote Learning

Resources Pickup: Friday, March 20th from 12:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. -- families may visit the school during this designated time to pick up the resources, books, and materials teachers have assembled for their students to complete the two-week Remote Learning period

Remote Learning Period: Monday, March 23rd - Friday, April 3rd

Easter Break (No School): Monday, April 6th - Monday, April 13th

ALL EVENTS will be canceled through Friday, April 3rd and rescheduled as possible throughout the remainder of the year

We understand the temporary inconvenience this may place on students and families. However, as your partners in Christian education, we are committed to making this plan as easy and effective to implement as we can.  To that end, we will be sending additional communications and instructions to you over the next week to help you and your children prepare for the Remote Learning period, beginning on Monday, March 23rd.

In closing, please keep in mind that none of us asked for the coronavirus, yet God sent it anyway according to His good and perfect will and timing. Pray that we would be able to work together to navigate the tasks ahead of us for his glory, for the benefit of our students, and the protection of everyone involved.

Thank you for your continued support and partnership!

Prayerfully, 

Tony Quist

An increase in responsibility and self-confidence, an opportunity to practice human relations skills, and a keener awareness of the link between classroom learning and the real world are among the benefits students gain from a high school cooperative program. Christian Heritage Academy now offers this opportunity to seniors.

Through the Cooperative Education Training Program, students are released from school early and have the ability to work a minimum of 280 hours in jobs that match their aptitudes. In doing so, they earn high school credit.

Tearra Sink is one of Christian Heritage’s first students participating in the program. Working at a local State Farm agency, she even plans to take a certification exam in January in order to advance in her job.

"I love the opportunity that the co-op program has given me for my senior year.  Not only do I get to leave school early and go to a job that I love, but I also will receive the last credit that I need for graduation,” Sink said. “ I feel that it's a great opportunity and I really appreciate the chance to get a head start on my future.”

Supervising Coordinator Melanie Cassady visits each student on-site to help the student troubleshoot any issues, consult with the training sponsor and evaluate the student. The student is assessed on a wide variety of soft and hard skills including productivity, communication, attitude, initiative, reliability and the way that the student represents himself or herself through personal habits, language and grooming.

“Implementing a co-op program has been a goal for our school for several years and it's exciting to have it as an option for our students moving forward,” Cassady said.

In addition to State Farm, Hometown Ice is also participating in the co-op program. Employers are expected to help develop a training program that exposes students to various aspects of the business, provides instructional materials, and guides students along the way.

According to EricDigests.org, which reports on current trends in education, employers benefit from such a contract, enhancing the business’s reputation, providing an effective screening and recruitment opportunity, and leading to higher employee retention and productivity.

Christian Heritage Academy welcomes the opportunity to work with other businesses in the community as it expands its program. For more information on participating in the co-op program, contact:

Gaining Flexibility While Maintaining Fellowship

Christian Heritage Academy Pilots Online Program

 At a time when the K-12 educational climate has rapidly shifted to include online offerings, Christian Heritage Academy (CHA) announces its 2019 online pilot program. In partnership with Liberty University, the dually accredited program (ACSI, AdvancedED) will include a full-time digital offering, a hybrid of traditional and digital school and a dual-enrollment program which enables students to earn college credit online while still enrolled in high school. Students may also choose an academic track that will allow them to graduate with a CHA diploma and earn an Associate’s Degrees from Liberty University. 

Here’s what sets CHA apart from other online programs: All online students are invited to participate in on-campus, student-life activities including athletics, extra-curricular activities, service opportunities, academic counseling, and special events. 

“CHA-Online has been a huge blessing to me and my family, I have been able to take all my classes online and still be involved in activities at my school,” said Savannah Novak.    

With roughly 2.7 million K-12 students enrolled in online courses during the 2014-15 school year. The trend is accelerating.  For families who travel extensively or homeschool, it provides an alternative to traditional schooling. 

“The freedom to enjoy a more fluid schedule is appealing and many families are able to take advantage of those options. We want to offer those families the option to receive a Christian education and access to our CHA community,” said Tony Quist, Head of School.

Christian Heritage Academy is planning to launch CHA-Online for the 2020-2021 school year. This program will be offered to students in grades K through 12 who are seeking an affordable opportunity for biblically integrated and academically rigorous courses with flexibility and school community.

CHA Bible Teacher Becomes Colson Fellow

September 12, 2019
By Public Relations

Miller officially becomes a Colson Fellow after completing the 10-month program. He is pictured with Barrie Winn (left), Director at the Carolinas Colson Fellows Cohort, and Bill Brown (right), Dean of the Colson Fellowship Program.

Eric Miller is a believer in the adage that learning never ends. A high school math and Bible teacher at Christian Heritage Academy for 20 years, Miller has successfully completed his fellowship with the Colson Fellows Program.

Miller joins over 1300 fellows across the U.S. and in 12 foreign countries who have taken on the mantle of being leaders of change and cultural counterpoints embracing a Christian perspective.

According to the Colson Fellows website:  “Colson Fellows learn how to better interpret all of life and reality from a consciously Christian worldview.”

The 10-month program included devotionals, discipleship activities, book analysis and bi-monthly webinars with authors and Christian leaders. Importantly, the fellows then developed individual plans to incorporate their learning within their sphere of influence.

The program began in 1991, and fellows come from a wide variety of vocations and backgrounds.  As a teacher, Miller adds another rich layer to his body of knowledge and belief system.

"I thoroughly enjoyed my time in the Colson Fellows program. I learned that in spite of my experience, that there are always new issues and authors out there that I need to be reading and assimilating into my classroom to keep preparing my students for the culture THEY will be interfacing with," Miller said.

"For 31 years I have been blessed to spend my days with my favorite people- the students and staff at Christian Heritage Academy. I love teaching, I love students, I love the freedom to teach creatively, I love being able to express my faith. My students' enthusiasm and humor energizes me, and I have always loved trying to figure out new ways to help them learn," shared Griffith.

Mrs. Griffith has made significant impacts on CHA, educating several hundred students over the years and continually guiding them with their wisdom and leadership. She will be greatly missed by all within the CHA community.

"Mrs. Griffith has placed Jesus first, her family second, and faithfully served the Lord in the ministry of her church and this school for many years. In fact, we are the school we are today in large part because of her sacrifice, commitment, and investment in Christian education at CHA.  It’s truly been an honor to work alongside a teacher of her caliber," said Mr. Tony Quist, Head of School.

The CHA community is extremely grateful for Mrs. Griffith’s  service over the years and prays for continued blessings on her future endeavors.  Griffith looks forward to spending her time serving her family, church, and others.

CHA is proud to announce that Eric Miller, a high school teacher at CHA, has been accepted into the Colson Fellows Program.

Eric Miller - Secondary Bible and Math teacher

"I'm looking forward to this opportunity,” said Eric Miller. “It is my desire to expand and strengthen my worldview training in the context of preparing our Bible for students to face the modern, multicultural world. I also look forward to creating opportunities to provide cultural training and insight to parents both at CHA and in my local church."
