All 3 of my children attended C.H.A. & we loved every moment of it. To the reviews that were negative - you will only get out of a school what you & your child put into it. I have been a public school teacher for 28 years & unless know as a teacher & parents that if you don't put anything in education & don't encourage your child to make good choices the outcome will not be favorable. I love this school that has a staff & administration with a caring heart & love for God. I highly recommend it to anyone who is looking for an environment where their child can excel academically, athletically & spiritually!

I love this school. My child has attended Christian Heritage Academy since Pre-school. The classes are above grade level. The teachers and administration are great! I would recommend this school!

Education is subpar. Kids are very cliquey. Administration is uncaring. Would never recommend. AVOID at all costs.

Very disappointed in the school. There is way to much favoritism for certain students to the deteriment of others. Will not be retiming or recommending. Stay away there are much better private schools in the city.

I love Christian Heritage Academy because we know that our children are receiving an excellent education there. We have one daughter that went through 8th grade at CHA and is now at Paxon and is so well prepared for high school. Our other daughter is in 5th grade and is doing excellent and know that she will do awesome in middle school here next year. The teachers are caring and work with the students to make sure they understand and all of the staff is Christ like and cares about each and every student. The parent involvement is excellent and academically I love how well prepared my children are to move onto the next level of education. I would recommend CHA to anyone!

My daughter attended this school for several years. The staff and administration were always very helpful. My daughter was very well prepared academically for Stanton College Prep.

Like the prevous reviewer, our child also attended this school for numerous years. When making the decision to remove him/her, we had to hire private tutors for the summer and he/she also had to attend weekly tutoring in math and science in order to catch up with other students at his/her PUBLIC school. For the most part, administration, teachers and members of the board were extremely defensive and unresponsive to our complaints or concerns. We would not recommend this school.

CHA is a great school. It has provided my son with a high quality, well rounded, christian education from PK-4 through 3rd grades - in a safe environment. He will definately remain at CHA as long as possible, through 8th grade. We will also gladly enroll his younger sibling in their VPK program. The teachers are truly skilled, love the children, and work to effectively communicate with parents. Thank you to CHA - their teachers, staff, and administration - for providing an affordable christian education option without compromising quality

My son has made huge progress in his reading and math skills and Christian Heritage this year. He has also begun to develop a sense of responsibility and spiritual values. I give most of the credit for this to his teachers and I plan to keep him in this school as long as possible.

My child attended the school for 2 years and loved it. The staff and students are committed and the same faces there year after year. The school does not look like much from the outside but the small size and warm environment are refreshing in comparison to the other schools around.

My child attended Christian Heritage Academy for 2nd-5th grade. Each of his teachers worked with us to bring out the best in our child. They were dedicated to helping each child reach his potential and to teaching values that come from the Bible. It is a smaller school with a family atmosphere. We were very pleased with the school.

The staff at CHA are really great. I would have to say that I have had a difficult time with some of the my childs teachers for the past couple of years. However I would have to say that this year the teacher my child has is wonderful and is the first one that has stepped out to help my child succeed. Yes some things could improve but all around I would probably give a score on a 1-10 scale a 7.

This school does a quality job with the resources they have been given, and there are many people committed to help make it ithe best school of its size in the area. They are in a building program now and have added an eighth grade. The new building should be finished for 2006-2007. There are not as many extracurricular activities as some might have, but they have excellent art and computer teachers, and the music program is building. Check them out, it might be the place for your family.

It's the best kept secret in Jacksonville! The school has a very low student to teacher ratio, and offers all the perks of a much larger school, with spanish, PE, music, art, computer and library classes. I'm thrilled with the school. The Staff is so caring and helpful. The tuition is one of the lowest in the area for private education.

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.
