About Our School

Located on the historic Central State Hospital development grounds on the Near Westside, Christel House Academy West serves students in grades K-8, with our high school students joining our Christel House Academy South campus. Christel House Academy develops intelligent, poised and thoughtful graduates, and teachers believe in the potential of all students. The program provides a robust academic curriculum, rich in meaningful experiences, and allows students the opportunity to demonstrate leadership through student-led conferences, service to others, and by serving in school leadership roles. Teachers utilize the International Primary Curriculum, to engage students in 21st century learning activities that enhance academic potential. Community-based service learning is central to the student experience at West.
