Victoria Richardson
Director of Spiritual Life

As a Christian school, we desire that students at Chapelgate Christian Academy know Jesus as their Lord and Savior, grow in Christ, and find freedom in the gospel. We seek to be a community that embraces healing, renewal, and peace in Christ. There are age-appropriate opportunities for students to engage with their faith and spiritual journey at CCA. In Lower School, students have bi-weekly chapel services that include worship, prayer, testimonies, small group discussions, and guest speakers. Educators in the Lower School are intentional about teaching Bible stories and content throughout their academic curriculums. Our Upper School students have a number of ways to hear the Word of God, wrestle with hard questions, have spirit-filled conversations, and grow as a community. Some opportunities for our Upper School students include bi-weekly chapel meetings, Bible classes, retreats, service opportunities, mission trips, small group discussions, prayer, and discipleship.

Grades 6-8: The Good News

All students in Middle School will take one Bible class per year. For the 22-23 academic school year, students will look at the gospel of Jesus Christ and why it is called “The Good News.” We seek to provide a safe and nurturing environment where middle schoolers can come with questions. The Good News helps students to discover the gospel, Jesus, and who we really are.

6th & 7th Grade

When: October 12-14, 2022

Why? 6th and 7th graders will attend Black Rock Retreat Center for three days to engage in science activities and bond with one another. The main goals of Black Rock are to (1) challenge students in their relationship with God, (2) help students learn through hands-on science activities in God’s creation, (3) help students in social skills and maturity through living and working together, (4) to allow students to experience the outdoors, and (5) to inspire students to see their strengths and their role as a part of God’s redemptive plan.

8th Grade

Friday Chapel

Friday morning is Chapel time. This is an opportunity for our students, staff & faculty to pause in their week and gather to worship God together. This time is used for other purposes to train, instruct and uplift one another. This is a refreshing experience for all and has led many young people into service in their church communities in the music and technical side of worship leading.
