What do I want? What do I Need?

Young adolescents will always push for what they want and need. At Christian Heritage Academy, our goal is to help them satisfy at least some of their desires (what they think they want and need) without sacrificing their education or their safety and well being. We want to launch them into becoming self-guided and self-disciplined young people who will achieve success in the future. Some of our tools include teachers who understand them to the best of their abilities, school structures that work with adolescents, advisers that mentor them in educational and personal growth and opportunities for choice and reflection. Bible studies and prayer time anchor our studentsin finding themselves, their self-esteem, and their guide for the future in Jesus Christ. The we sprinkle in lots of fun!
