At Christian Heritage School, a person’s Christian faith is interwoven into all activities of the school day. Our mission is to “Educate Children to Serve Christ.” We do this through pursuing excellence in the academics, arts, and athletics while trying to ensure that our graduates have a heart for God and their neighbor, possess a Biblical worldview, and are able to effectively communicate their life message. Our students have an inherent desire to reach out to our community and abroad. CHS has partnered with several local agencies that provide various types of aid to the citizens of Dalton. Each grade has a specific outreach project including but not limited to: class visits to local nursing homes and daycares centers, participation in Conasauga River Clean-Up Day, Miracle Field Opening Day, and collecting food and serving meals at City of Refuge.
The mission of our Bible program is to assure that every student is taught a biblical worldview. The goal of this instruction is not only knowledge of biblical principles, but also a transformed life, striving for Christ-likeness. Our weekly chapel services, local community service projects, and Bible curriculum give students an opportunity to develop a heart for God, a life of service, and a deeper understanding of the Word of God. “….so that He Himself might come to have first place in everything.” (Colossians 1:18)
The spiritual emphasis at CHS facilitates many avenues of worship. At Christian Heritage School, we are blessed to have a diverse student body with over 80 different churches represented. All students at CHS participate in a weekly chapel service where students hear from speakers from within, as well as outside, the school community. To promote community and meaningful relationships, our middle and upper school students also participate in a student-led chapel each week.
6th Grade Retreat
The focus of our 6th Grade Retreat, which is held at Camp Highland in Northwest Georgia, is to help students learn to honor one another and most of all, to honor Christ. Team-building activities teach students to help one another as they work together to accomplish a common goal.
Elementary School Missions Week
Once a year the CHS Elementary School spends a week focused on Missions. Mission-related activities occur in the classroom as well as a combined time together to focus on a different missions opportunity. Many times the week includes some way for the children to support the work of missions. Every year we learn that we are Always on Mission to be a Blessing.
Each Friday morning during the school year, from 8:00 – 9:00 you are invited to the library to spend time praying for the school, students, teachers, and staff of Christian Heritage School.
The goal of the Advisory Program at CHS is to help students develop a meaningful relationship with a faculty mentor beyond the classroom. The faculty member will strive to understand his/her students from a more global perspective, rather than just on a subject-specific basis and will serve as a resource for both the student and his/her parents throughout the year. Advisory will utilize three key components to advocate for students – Spiritual, Academic and Behavioral.
