Growing in Faith

Our Junior Kindergarten students build on an understanding of who Jesus is and how much He loves them. Our students are supported by nurturing teachers who love Jesus and seek to glorify Him in all they do.

Partnering with Parents

Chapel Hill Academy is a parent-involved school. CHA comes along side parents, as the primary educator of their child, to assist and provide a solid foundation for faith and learning.

Learning through Play

Students feel safest and learn best when they are loved and have support around them. Learning through play in our Jr. K classroom allows each student to make and create long-lasting friendships that take them into Kindergarten and keep growing year after year.
