School Life

Opportunities to shine aren't limited to the classroom.

CHS students lead, serve, learn, and grow in an exceptional roster of school activities. Students across campus engage with the community through various acts of service, clubs, and leadership activities. Students young and old work alongside each other in our campus gardens. Aspiring student-leaders have the opportunity to serve as prefects and possess a high degree of commitment to the values and ideals that we hold dear while practicing them on a daily basis. They are immersed globally from kindergarten through twelfth grade through field trips that extend across Georgia, to New York, and beyond. Clearly, what happens in the classroom at CHS is just a part of the beginning of an extraordinary life.


Our curriculum extends into the community through multiple field trips in every grade. From visiting the Tellus Science Museum, the Creation Museum in Kentucky, to apple picking, hiking, going to the zoo and aquarium, exploring the state of Georgia, and traveling to New York, K-12 students’ out-of-the-classroom experiences increase understanding back on campus.



Everyone needs a mentor, and our advisory program ensures that each student has a great one. In one-on-one get-togethers each week, faculty advisors offer academic support, instruction, and social counsel to help students navigate and celebrate life's milestones at both the middle and high-school levels.


We believe that positive peer influence has a powerful impact on student morale and behavior. Leadership opportunities in both the middle and high school center upon the work of our prefects and the committees that support them. Prefects impact our school community through servant leadership while assuming significant responsibilities in the daily life of CHS. Prefects are leaders who are capable of overseeing the work in their particular areas while managing the underclassmen involved therein, as they are responsible for forming a committee of students from each grade to assist in the management of their office. They do not carry the power of authority over other students; their effectiveness is derived from their personal convictions and the quality of their lives as role models.
