First of all we need to realize that no school is perfect. We all have our own ideas on how things should be and what is ideal for our children. But I have found that Citrus Heights Academy is a really good fit for my family. Each school day is started out right with a devotional and the students have a Bible class each day. This fills in any gaps that we may have missed at home. We have found that the staff of CHA really do care about the spiritual well-being of each student.

CHA is affordable, loving and care about the well being and academic success of their students! A Christ centered bible based atmosphere shows every time I just "pop" in unannounced! I am excited for what next year brings for my son as he grows in his relationship with Christ! Thanks CHA for being there for him!

Amazing, affordable and loving Principal! Small class size and attention to the students needs are all the reasons I choose this school for my son! Did I mention affordable? If you look at all the schools in the area Citrus is the lowest tuition around! It is not about the state of the art facilities (that are not even used properly I know from experience) At one school you pay science and technology fees and never get to use the equipment! CHA is where it's at!

Amazing, loving and affordable Christ centered school! Go ahead and check out the other Christian schools, then enroll at CHA if you want your child to grow in the knowledge of God. CHA is an excellent school with loving administration! Check out the ratings and comments of other Clermont private schools and you will still come back to CHA because they love their students and are parrionate about your child's success!

We enrolled both of our daughters at Citrus Heights when our oldest was entering high school. We were looking for a small Christian school that would reflect and help to build on the morals that our family lived by. After attending several years at public schools we were relieved to find a school atmosphere that we felt would not only provide more individual academic attention to our daughters but a place that was centered around God and safe for our girls to express and grow in their faith. This was ABSOLUTELY the BEST decision we have ever made for our family!

This is a fantastic shcool, my daughter has been attending middle school there for two years and we will be continuing next year. CHA is a small Christian school with terrific leadership and values. They are passionate about their committment to the students and their families. There is plenty of individual attention when needed direct communication with parents that you can not get in a public middle school. It's smal size and fantastic student to teacher ration meets the needs of all it's students enhancing their education. The requirement for participation in student led activities such as the fantastic plays, continues to create bonds between students, teachers and parents as well.

Citrus Heights Academy has been a great fit for our child. Our child has been able to receive the extra help that is needed throughout the school year. The Pastor, Principal and Teachers are all fantastic and really care about every student. We are able to keep track of our childs grades and homework assignments daily. We as parents have been very pleased with Citrus Heights Academy and our child is looking forward to attending again next year.

CHA prides itself as a christian based school. They encourage the students to attend church every sunday and explain how important it is to have God in their lives. My son is very happy there. They are flexible with dual enrollment courses as well.

Citrus Heights Academy is a wonderful gem of a school. It is a small school that emphasizes personal attention for every child. Communication between parents and teachers is made easier by a computerized grading system which allows the student and the parent to check student progress any time, day or night. Religious values are important at CHA, where the school is led by Christians who model the values they espouse, and Bible study begins every school day. CHA adds another dimension to its educational program by offering a school-wide play production and classes ranging from quilting to yearbook production to small engine repair. Probably the best characteristic CHA has to offer is the family feeling my child experiences with the staff and students.

Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.

  • CHA is unique in its ability to offer small class sizes with outstanding student-to-teacher with a staff that has the time it takes to work with students on an individual basis. By implementing a combination of teaching techniques, CHA has developed a unique approach to education. There are a variety of projects, labs, activities, and essays that will help your child develop academically, emotionally, socially and spiritually. CHA realizes the benefits of group teaching and peer interaction. In each class there is a time for individualized teaching as well as group teaching. This offers flexibility to help customize your child’s educational needs. It is also interactive so that after the group teaching time, it helps the students stay engaged and excited about learning. We go beyond rote memory learning by developing strong study and note taking skills with critical and analytical reasoning. Students are taught a Biblical worldview and your child will learn how to apply Christian values to daily living. It is our desire to instill within each student a high regard for spiritual, moral, and academic standards as well as equip them in extra curricular areas that will strengthen each student.
