Christian Heritage School is a K-12 community whose mission is Educating Children to Serve Christ. We believe this is accomplished through a balanced and intentional focus on our four pillars: Academics that Challenge, Athletics that Build, Arts that Inspire, and Active Faith that Endures. By focusing on growth in each of these areas, our students engage in a relational education process that creates a strong foundation and allows students to learn who they truly are as well as helps them discover what God has planned for their lives.
As a CHS parent, my family values both the sense of community and the nurturing environment that is pushing our son to grow. The small class sizes and clear expectations provide an opportunity for him to be known and challenged. We are a family of students, teachers, parents, alumni, grandparents, and friends who share a unique bond that transcends description. We feel that education is a partnership with our families and that by working together we can maximize the growth of each of our students, in each of our pillars.
While you can learn a lot about our school from our website, I invite you to spend time with the CHS family, and I hope you will plan a campus visit soon. I believe the energy, activities, and relationships you will see are what you are searching for in a school. It certainly was for our family. We can not wait to see you on campus!
Head of School
Head of School Kent Harrison is best known for his passion for Christian education and his emphasis on building relationships both inside and outside the walls of the schools he has served. Before coming to CHS in 2018, he served as the athletic director for Mt. Pisgah Christian School in Johns Creek, Ga., for two and a half years. While there, he was instrumental in raising funds to enhance their athletic facilities, as well as in the overall growth of their athletic program.
A native of Cedartown, Ga., Kent brings a broad professional background that encompasses teaching in both public and private schools along with admissions, athletic, and administrative experience. A strong leader, his focus on academic, spiritual, social, and extracurricular growth aligns perfectly with our School’s four pillars: Academics that Challenge, Athletics that Build, Arts that Inspire, and Active Faith that Endures.
“Believing in a school’s mission is essential to leading effectively. The opportunity to serve and lead a school where your personal mission and the mission of the school are in complete alignment is a dream come true,” said Harrison.
Kent holds a B.S. in Middle Grades Education and an M.Ed. in Administration from the University of West Georgia. Additionally, he is a Certified Athletic Administrator and a member of the National Interscholastic Athletic Administrators. Before taking the position at Mt.
