Our School

About Our School

Christel House Academy teachers believe in the potential of all students. The program provides a robust academic curriculum, rich in experiences, and provides students the opportunity to demonstrate leadership through student-led conferences, service to others, and by serving in school leadership roles. CHA strives to equip every graduate with the ability to access college or a productive career. All Christel House high school students are on track to earn an Academic Honors Diploma or a Technical Honors Diploma. Annually, every graduate earns an acceptance letter to a four-year college. CHA students that graduate with an Academic Honors Diploma, and have completed two dual credit classes, receive automatic admission to University of Indianapolis, along with full-tuition scholarship to cover anything not covered by their Pell Grant and 21st Century Scholarship. Additionally, after graduation, all graduates enter into the 5-Year College and Careers program, where they receive support and assistance through college and into a productive career placement.
