Junior High School can be a challenging time of life, but here at Christian Home Academy (CHA) your Junior High student will have an opportunity to become strong academically, spiritually, and physically. Supporting, challenging, and loving the adolescent during the interval between elementary school and high school is significant in the development of each student. CHA wants to make the most of this dynamic and formative window of time. Our school strives to balance the junior high years by focusing on four essential elements: a deepening faith, a community of friends, positive teacher relationships, and a place of learning. Each student is diagnostically tested to determine current academic ability and identify any learning gaps within each subject prior to placing the student in his/her curriculum. This insures that the student is working at his/her performance level, addressing the learning gaps rather than working at a frustration level.
In addition to the foundational subjects of English, Math, Science, History and Bible, the CHA Junior High student has the opportunity to study Computer Applications, Electricity and Electronics, Science, Art, Spanish and Music. At CHA Junior High School all subjects and classes taught are based on biblical foundations and extol a Christian world-view. In order to accomplish this goal, CHA utilizes the Accelerated Christian Education (ACE) program. CHA Junior High School uses the Bible curriculum from the ACE series because it is individualized. It allows each student to work at his own level of achievement, which may vary from subject to subject.
Students in Junior High School participate in extracurricular classes including Music, Christian Karate, Art, Computers and many other activities. The elementary program will also compete in various local, county, and state competitions in Spelling, Mathematics, Science, Physical Education and Geography. Students participate in the Stanford Achievement Test (SATs) each Spring.
Christian Home Academy strives to have a student/teacher ratio that enables both students and teachers to perform with excellence. Each level takes into account the room size, student age/size, and space requirements for that grade. Typically the student/teacher ratio in each class is approximately 10 to 1.
