Our annual Sweetheart Banquet is a themed event near Valentine's day where our junior
high and high school students honor their parents (the sweethearts). The kids plan the menu, prepare and
serve dinner, decorate,
entertain and then clean up! (Left) A previous year theme offered the kids - and
their parents - a '20's-themed costume event and great fun!
(Right) Food prep time can be fun time too for some of the Food Committee.
CHS seeks to support families in their home education endeavors and to provide a means of accountability to fulfill all legal requirements while being flexible enough to accommodate the individual parents' philosophy of education for their children. We are considered a Private School Satellite Program (PSP) and serve Christian families committed to teaching their own children at home.
Christian Heritage School was established as a private Christian school in 1991 to provide support, accountability and guidance to home educating parents in the western Inland Empire and nearby communities, including
north Orange County.
Staff and Enrollment
three full-time or part-time paid staff members, but can only operate with the faithful assistance of many volunteers. Our office is located in Corona, California, and we have small groups for support located in Corona and surrounding communities such as Norco, Riverside,
Eastvale and Rancho Cucamonga. For the
2013-2014 school year, nearly 170 families were enrolled in CHS. Among them, there
were about 130 elementary students and over 100 high school pupils.
Twenty-nine seniors graduated in 2014.
Statement of Faith
The Bible makes it clear that parents are responsible to God for our children's training - spiritually, morally, and academically (Deut. 6:6-9; Prov. 22:6). Our goal is that our children receive the best education possible while instilling in them a Christian heritage.
All member families are in agreement with our statement of faith:
We believe in the Scriptures as the final and supreme authority in faith and life. We believe in the one God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus Christ, by offering Himself on the cross, paid the penalty for man's sin, and that we now may enter into the family of God on the basis of His shed blood. We believe in the bodily resurrection and imminent return of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We believe that all who by faith receive the Lord Jesus Christ are born of the Holy Spirit and thereby become children of God.
Christian Heritage School is in agreement with the objectives and goals of Christian Home Educators Association of California (CHEA) and is a proud CHEA
Support Network member.
Home School Legal Defense Association (HSLDA) membership is required for all CHS enrolled families. HSLDA provides quality legal defense for families who elect to educate their children at home, should they ever need it. We are able to offer a group discount rate to our members. If you are homeschooling, whether you choose to enroll with CHS or not, we strongly encourage membership in HSLDA. Please use this link for first time enrollment. HSLDA
