Summary

Christian Heritage Academy has been providing Christian education and training since 1972 with a vision of training American Christian leaders for every sphere of society. CHA is a fully accredited, private Christian school serving families of the Oklahoma City metropolitan area from grades Pre-K through high school. Committed to excellence in academics, athletics, and the fine arts, CHA is sending out leaders prepared to influence others for the sake of Christ and the glory of God.

CHA offers its students great opportunities, both in and out of the classroom, such as dual credit enrollment, competitive OSSAA athletics, student leadership programs, and annual foreign mission trips. Add to those distinctives a safe, family-like atmosphere among the student body, faculty, and staff and you have an exceptional school in which to enroll your children.

Graduates of CHA can be found in a variety of influential vocations in the arts, education, politics, law, finance, business, media, missions, and church ministry. And many of them attribute their successes to the start they received at Christian Heritage Academy.

Purpose

The vision of Christian Heritage Academy is to train American Christian leaders for every sphere of society.

Christian Heritage Academy's goal is to produce true Christian scholars who will be leaders in the spheres of society: home, church, media, education, business, government, the arts, and entertainment. In order to accomplish this goal, CHA's education experience is distinctively different.

At CHA, the student is trained to be a producer rather than a consumer. CHA's notebook methodology trains the student to be organized in his thoughts and with his property. The importance of presenting ideas in a logical and legible form are life-long skills for any scholar. Rather than consuming workbooks, the student is taught to reason and record ideas. Instead of teaching disconnected topics, the student is taught the principles and leading ideas of the subjects, which deepens his understanding of the material.

The student at CHA is taught to be a critical thinker. In a relativistic world, where there is perceived to be no absolute truth, the student has to be trained to think biblically. The Bible is not just taught at CHA but seen as foundational to all subject matter, for it is sufficient for all of life's questions. The student is taught to think critically by learning to 4-R (define terms, reason biblically, relate the ideas to life's circumstances, and form a ready response). Assessments and assignments produce Christian scholars who will be used of God to engage the culture and answer with a ready defense.

A person's view of history will affect the future. At CHA, the student is instructed in a providential view of history. God is the author, and it is "His" story we observe. In that story, God uses people and nations to accomplish His purposes. The student studies key individuals and learns the history of his subject, producing an appreciation for what God has done in and through the lives of individuals. As a result, the student develops an understanding that he too is a link in the chain of Christianity.

From the founding of our nation to God's continued plan of liberty, the student is presented with a gospel purpose for the nations. The sixth grade students participate in the Washington DC trip and learn about the role of government and the importance of Christian self-government. As seniors, students visit Plymouth and Boston, as a capstone to their studies in the birth and purpose of our nation. CHA also offers several mission and ministry opportunities in which students can participate. From Thailand to Honduras, CHA students have the opportunity to join in local and international missions annually. Likewise, our athletic and student leadership programs have a gospel purpose.

CHA is producing student leaders. Character training is foundational for our students and faculty. From our elementary to secondary, the student has opportunities to grow in his abilities to serve, organize and plan ministry opportunities, and lead, as well as grow in his understanding of leadership.


Mission statement

The purpose of Christian Heritage Academy is to assist the home and church in building a solid foundation in the life of each student--a life which is characterized by a personal salvation experience, the development of Christian character, the Christian conscience and Christian self-government. The ultimate goal of the Academy is to produce true Christian scholars who will be used of God to propagate the Gospel throughout the whole world and to restore our American Christian Republic to its historic, Biblical foundation.


Statement of faith

The Bible, both the Old and New Testaments, is the verbally inspired, infallible, inerrant Word of God and is our only rule in matters of faith and practice. [2 Tim. 3:16; 2 Peter 1:21]

There is one God, eternally existing in three persons--the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. [John 1:1; John 10:30, 37-38; John 15:26]

The heavens, earth, and all of nature were created by God and did not evolve. Man was created by a special and direct act of God and in the image of God. [Gen. 1; Gen. 2:4-7; Gen. 5:1-2]

We believe in the Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ, in His Virgin Birth, in His sinless life, in His miracles, in His vicarious and substitutional atonement for the sins of mankind by the shedding of His blood on the cross, in His bodily resurrection, in His ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His personal return in power and glory. [Isa. 7:14; Matt. 1:23; Luke 1:34-35; John 2:11; John 11:25; Acts 1:11; Col. 1:14; Heb. 4:15; Heb. 7:25; Heb. 9:12; Rev. 19:11-16]

Adam and Eve, in yielding to the temptation of Satan, became fallen creatures. All men are sinful by nature; therefore, regeneration is essential and absolutely necessary for salvation. Salvation is by grace through faith in the atoning blood of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. [Gen. 3:1-7; John 3:16-19; Rom. 3:19, 23; Rom. 5:24; Eph. 2:8-10; Titus 3:5-6]

The Christian is enabled to live a godly life by the continuing ministry of the in-dwelling Holy Spirit. [Eph. 4:30; Eph. 5:18; 1 Cor. 3:16; 1 Cor. 6:19-20]

Both the saved and the lost will be resurrected--the saved into eternal life and the lost into eternal damnation. [John 5:28-29]

All believers have spiritual unity in the Lord Jesus Christ. [Rom. 8:9; 1 Cor. 12:12-13; Gal. 3:26-28]
