Dedication

Our faculty and staff are truly dedicated to the children that roam our halls. We have an incredibly low turnover rate, which means our students grow up with the same Christ-centered influences in their life.

Beyond Teaching

Faculty pray with their students. Administration pray with their faculty. Our team is driven to make a difference in every individual, whether they are a toddler, a teenager, or a parent.

Degreed & Certified

All of our teachers have 4 year degrees from accredited colleges/universities. In addition, the majority of our upper school faculty have Master’s degrees, which allow them to teach at a (truly) college level.

Employment Opportunities

Have a passion for shaping future generations? Christ Chapel Academy is accepting resumes for all positions PreK-12 for the 2020-2021 school year.
