As part of the 11,000+ events taking place across the nation, Christ Chapel Academy (CCA) will celebrate National School Choice Week (NSCW), Jan 25th –Jan 31st. CCA teachers will receive special recognition during student chapels to thank them for choosing to be at CCA. Elementary classes competed against one another to create the best School Choice Bulletin Board, where students and parents reflected on the benefits of being at CCA.
“I like CCA because I have great friends. I love learning about Science,” wrote 1st grade Jonah Green. “We chose CCA for our children because of the teachers. We truly see the love of God in their hard work and dedication to their students,” wrote a parent. The winner of the contest will be announced during NSCW.
NSCW also helps advance CCA’s mission to engage learners and unleash leaders, by providing the opportunity to talk to students about making good choices. Secondary School Upperclassmen will lead a panel discussion on making good choices, during their chapel. CCA will also be announcing the creation of a new Student Leadership Award that will be given out at the end of the school year.
CCA parents will be treated to a complimentary breakfast at the end of the week as a token of thanks for choosing CCA. “We are thankful that parents have the opportunity to choose Christian education,” Said Christ Chapel Academy Administrator, Paul Miklich. “We are even more thankful for the parents that used that opportunity to choose us.”
According to the Friedman Foundation For Educational Choice, “Virginia has one private school choice program (tax-credit scholarships). The state has a limited charter school law. Virginia allows for limited public virtual schooling. The state does not allow open enrollment (intradistrict and interdistrict public school choice).”
