Connectedness and Engagement | Team Spirit | One Big Family | Community Engagement | Service Learning
Dedicated to reaching out and helping our neighbors within the larger communities, this mission is supported through the CHP Service Learning Program for our students. The focus of this program is to help our students become more aware of the needs of others and to get involved in helping to provide for those needs. Even our youngest students become involved and emulate the qualities that develop within a framework of Caring and Sharing. Student community involvement includes participating in the annual Tour De Franklin to support the local food bank. Middle School students are committed to 5 hours of community service each year. Students are always fundraising to help combat cancer, Huntington’s disease, and many other worthy causes.
Monthly Dress Down for Charity Days are held to support a variety of local and global charities. CHP has partnered with a local Senior Residential Center so that our students may visit and perform for the residents each month. In addition, as CHP students help to support the local food pantry, participate in the annual UNICEF Drive, and respond to national calls for relief efforts in times of disasters, they have become motivated to initiate their own calls for action as they collected items for Gift of Warmth Drives, backpacks filled with school supplies, Book Drives, and Pet Food Drives.
As our mission states, “CHP sows the seeds of curiosity, love for knowledge, and the will to engage socially such that every student has a sense of identity and purpose in life.”

Preschool, Elementary, or Middle School — When Does Private School Make The Most Sense? There is no question about whether or not a private school will significantly impact your child’s intellectual, personal, and interpersonal development. However, quite often, parents ask themselves: Does it make more sense to start early, or can I “skip” the first years and start in middle school when it starts counting towards their academic resume?
