PHILOSOPHY / OBJECTIVES
We are an independent, Christian faith-based, non-profit high school located in the East End of the City of Richmond. Our largest class this year has eleven students, our smallest has three students. Our top priority is responding to the academic needs of our students and reducing the area’s dropout rate. Bible study, prayer and chapel are a part of our school schedule, but students are not required to be or become Christians. We offer all the classroom instruction necessary to fulfill Virginia’s graduation requirements and follow Virginia’s course curriculum outlines. Finally, we seek to build thriving and healthy students who become leaders in their school, home, workplace and community.
Church Hill Academy asks each parent to contribute $100 per student to attend Church Hill Academy. Approximately $600,000 each year, on average $20,000 per student, is paid by private donations from churches, individuals, and businesses. All students and staff are expected to participate in activities related to fund development.
