The name for Chapel Hill Christian Academy has a special meaning behind it- one that will set the foundation for how our school operates and what, rather who, we focus on each day.
Specifically, the word “Chapel” shares our priority we set on meeting with God each day.
Chapel at our school is a time to come together to praise and worship our Father, for all students to have the opportunity to pray with one another, and to learn who Jesus is, centering our day around Him. We invite guest speakers or faculty members whom God will use to be a catalyst for a deeper passion for our students. Speakers often address how faith has made an impact in their lives and challenge students to do the same. Additionally, each member of our faculty and administration is dedicated to making every activity on campus an opportunity to grow our students into the people God has created them to be. Chapel at CHCA is a time to inspire and encourage students to go out and make a difference in their world.
Along with morning Chapel, students will receive daily Bible instruction, and every opportunity will be taken during the course of the day to share and apply Biblical Truth.
Colossians 2:6 reads, “Therefore, as you received Christ Jesus the Lord, so walk with him, rooted and built up in him and established in the faith. Just as you were taught, abounding in thanksgiving.” Chapel Hill will be a school that walks with Him, everything rooted in Him, established in our faith in Him, in His word, in His promises, praising Him with grateful hearts.
As we finish our day together, CHCA takes intentional time to end in a time of reflection and gratitude. It is important for our administration, faculty, and students to take time to reflect on the goodness of God and how He is working in their lives. Our goal is to cultivate gratitude in our students by keeping a “gratitude journal” in which they will regularly record the things for which they’re grateful. This time of gratitude helps reach the heart of our students and inspire them to be the woman or man of God they are made to be, while strengthen their awareness of God’s presence in their lives and the power of prayer.
I will give thanks to you, O Lord, among the peoples;
I will sing praises to you among the nations.
