Faculty and Staff
CHS is blessed to have men and women who are not only talented educators, but who also care about their students. Our teachers instruct from a biblical perspective, discipline with grace, and model a godly lifestyle on and off campus. Certified by the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), the teachers continue to learn through multiple professional development opportunities.
At CHS, the high school years are recognized as “launching years” that prepare our students to do their unique part in transforming our culture and world. Our desired outcome is to see submission to the Lordship of Christ, a demonstration of Christ’s character and authentic faith, and application of God’s Word in loving service. Our academic courses not only exceed state guidelines for a college preparatory program of study, but they also cultivate proficiency in the use of knowledge and skills for loving service in the world. Parents play an important role in the educational process. All parents lend a hand once a year on a Parent Labor Day to clean, repair and improve the school campus. Everyone is encouraged to be a part of the Parent-Teacher-Student-Fellowship (PTSF), which raises funds for school improvement and supports multiple school functions at CHS. Parents volunteer in many ways to ensure a safe and exceptional school experience for their children.
CHS is fully accredited by the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS).
CHS students take a nationally normed achievement test. Our students consistently outperform national averages at all grade levels. Every three years, the Otis-Lennon School Ability Test is also administered.
Our uniform dress code is a mandatory part of an overall standard that seeks to maximize focus on learning and minimize distraction. Uniforms are available at Educational Outfitters in Chattanooga, Buckhead Uniforms in Atlanta, and Choice Uniforms online. “Lightly used” uniforms are made available through the CHS uniform exchange at reduced prices several times a year.
Students may bring their lunch or purchase a hot lunch from a menu of meals brought in from various local restaurants.
