“This school is fantastic. Not only are the academics top notch but they also focus on leadership skills and teach the kids to be well rounded individuals. They spend a lot of time learning about different cultures and traditions. I love that the older students practice leadership skills by helping the younger students. The school has a great math, science, engineering, language arts and social studies curriculum. All students get gym, art, Spanish, technology and music as well. The principal, Holly Senaga, is the best.”

CHA provides a unique environment where students are appropriately challenged, academically motivated, and encouraged to be global citizens and problem solvers. Through our strong partnership with families, students become part of a community of learning that promotes lifelong learning, respect for each other and the environment, and a commitment to service.

The academic program is rigorous. The exploratory and investigative nature of our curriculum provides a broad scope of academic, social, emotional, and physical challenges to enhance each student’s growth. Our students are presented with a range of experiences across the core academic spectrum, including language arts, mathematics, science, social studies/history, world languages, performing arts, visual arts, physical education, library literacy, and technology. All curricula are reviewed through an ongoing process that assures alignment with and often exceeding state and national standards.
