Chapel Hill Christian Academy provides a strong preschool through seventh grade academic program in a caring, Christian environment. Our faculty and staff work daily to provide a variety of activities to meet individual needs and make the learning environment challenging, exciting, and successful. Our classrooms are filled with real learning and genuine excitement to pursue understanding. With an average class size of 12-15 students, teachers minister to the whole child, enriching students spiritually, intellectually and socially, helping each child establish their unique identity in Christ. 


The curriculum includes a well-balanced range of academic subjects with a Biblical worldview, featuring phonics and reading instruction, hands-on math experiences, and an explorative approach to science. Our hope is that our classrooms are filled with engaging learning opportunities and joyful excitement! You might hear songs or see children collaborating in groups, while sharing their ideas. As a school with these values, it is our heart to equip our students with the tools they need and the foundation to go out and share who God is and the love He has for others. 


CHCA students are immersed in a safe, nurturing environment that instills a love of learning within each child. We prepare them for the world- developing confident learners, who give generously and joyfully to others, all while keeping their eyes on Jesus. Just as important is the leadership and character growth our students will develop. It is one of our top priorities that we partner with parents to ‘train up a child in the way he should go.’ 

As students interact with one another, opportunities to help train them often arise, allowing teachers to maximize those "teachable moments." As teachers and parents help guide students to be honest, deal healthily with emotions and resolve conflicts, their confidence and character grow.
