Christian Home Academy realizes students have different needs. Our school offers behavior therapy on an individual basis and we welcome the student’s individual therapist to visit the school for therapy sessions. Our goal is to create the best working environment and meet each student’s individual needs.
When your student is enrolled at Christian Home Academy we diagnostically test them to help target any learning gaps and ensure each student is working on their individual levels for each subject. Once testing is complete we will first close any learning gaps discovered in the diagnostic testing and then construct a plan to bring the student up to academic balance as soon as possible. If your child tests above grade level then they student will begin work at the level diagnosed.
Christian Home Academy uses the Sing, Spell Read & Write curriculum for our kindergarten and also uses an intensive phonics program to help the students achieve reading readiness and proper pronunciation. We also offer speech therapy on an individual basis and we welcome the students’ personal speech therapist to come onsite for individual therapy sessions.
Christian Home Academy currently has two full time tutors. Our tutors work with teachers to target individual tutoring needs. Whether your child needs math drills, spelling and grammar practice, or just needs help completing daily work, our tutors are here to help. Financial scholarship levels will determine the amount of tutoring each child receives although additionally one on one tutoring help is available.

The Defending the Faith Karate Ministry is a certified school with an exciting ministry, teaching Tang Soo Do (Korean Karate). Fitness, self-control, and discipline are stressed throughout the program, but make no mistake about it; this program’s ultimate goal is to make disciples for Jesus Christ. Our students are trained to be as skilled with their martial arts as students in traditional class settings. Trainees build confidence as they learn about fighting, while at the same time learning the value of relying on the “Armor of God” and abstaining from violence.
Because we approach this from a Christian perspective, we only teach the physical discipline, mental discipline and scriptural discipline and eliminate any form of Asian mysticism that sometimes is associated with the martial arts in the secular world.
We are a certified school sanctioned through International Martial Arts Council of America, Karate for Christ International, The United States Good Will Tang Soo Do Association, The Christian Black Belt Association, and The Martial Arts Chaplain Association. Master Gary Lenzi is our certified black belt instructor and was inducted into the United States Marshal Arts Hall of Fame in July 2011. Our Tang Soo Do training has been designated, as its own style of martial art. Defending the Faith Karate has been recognized by the International Martial Arts Council of America. Each time a student tests for the next level belt, they are required to perform all the physical requirements for that level in addition to specific scripture assignments, and of equal importance, express an understanding of the scripture.
