Mission and Philosophy

Mission and Philosophy:
Christian Heritage School exists to assist parents in fulfilling their God-given responsibility to teach their children that, “In [Christ] are hid all the treasures of wisdom and knowledge” (Col. 2:3) and to provide its students with an education of spiritual and academic excellence with which to serve God.
Christian Heritage’s upper school curriculum offers a balance of liberal arts course offerings based on the core biblical principles of truth, excellence, and virtue.  Recognizing each student’s unique gifts and interests, CHS endeavors to prepare students for the higher education arena, and, ultimately, to serve God through their professions.  The major goals of the upper school curriculum are three-fold:
  • To sufficiently prepare students for academic success at the college level through a teaching and learning environment commensurate with a college-preparatory school.
  • To facilitate exploration, enrichment, and leadership through co-curricular programs.
  • To challenge students to take ownership of their faith in and walk with the Lord, understanding their calling in God’s plan.
Academic Integrity:

The CHS community holds scholarly pursuit and personal ethics in highest regard, as reflected in God’s word, “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord”  (Col. 3:23).  To this end, we seek to instill a sense of personal integrity in all areas of life by fostering moral and ethical values in a climate of mutual respect.  Students are expected to act with integrity as they assume responsibility for their education by submitting work that is truly and wholly their own.  In doing so, students learn from their mistakes and have the opportunity to grow and master their subjects of study.  Furthermore, students gain self-confidence and independence as they enter college, and ultimately, their vocational calling.
