Prospective parents will meet student ambassadors in the lobby who will walk them to the library for coffee and treats. Our administrators and parent volunteers will be there to greet them. The morning includes a brief overview about CHA, campus tours, classroom observations, chapel, and a concluding "Q & A" session.

Upper School SHADOW DAY - that same day, (October 5th), for prospective students in 8th-11th grades. Our CHA eighth graders will also be shadowing and we will provide lunch!
