On-campus instruction will begin on August 11, 2020.


The 2019 - 2020 academic year was like none other in the history of schools across the country, including Cottage Hill Christian Academy. The faculty and staff of CHCA are truly thankful for the hard work of our students, parents, and all school stakeholders during the period now known as “crisis schooling.” Our school community rallied together to work diligently to achieve digital learning success while operating under the state’s stay at home order. On behalf of all members of our faculty and staff, we at Cottage Hill Christian Academy are thrilled to begin the process of welcoming our students and families back to our campuses for the 2020 - 2021 academic year.


It has been such a joy to work with our administrative and leadership teams this summer as work is in full force to prepare for the 2020 - 2021 academic year. This dedicated group of faculty and staff are diligently working to prepare Cottage Hill Christian Academy for the return of our students and families on August 11 for the first day of school. Our team is working hard to ensure that all preparations are made to accommodate the health and safety of our Warrior family and will effectively communicate such plans as they are finalized.

Appreciation for Strategic Advisors

It is my honor to introduce those CHCA community members and faculty/staff who are serving on three strategic teams to enhance our ability to be prepared for the new school year given the current circumstances surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. They are guiding the reopening process with great care, concern, diligence, and prayer.

Your Invitation

From time to time, a parent will reach out to me due to frustration by rumors, speculation on social media, and weary with those who deal in pessimism regarding the school’s plans associated with COVID-19. These conversations have been positive in nature and when the conversation ends most walk away having regained a sense of peace about the future and the plans being made daily. If you find yourself exasperated, please send me an email and we will set up a time to talk so that you can rest in the confidence that the best is yet to come for CHCA. Thank you for the opportunity to serve your family! 


In Christ, 


Jeremy Sandefur 
Head of School
