Pronounced "khä'-rēs." It is the Greek word that is translated "GRACE" throughout the New Testament scriptures. It is God's loving-kindness, goodwill, and favor toward mankind regardless of whether or not mankind deserves it. It was demonstrated through the Person and finished work of Jesus Christ at the cross as God was in Jesus Christ reconciling the world unto Himself. It is our desire that every child, every parent, every staff member, every person that encounters Charis Christian Academy will "grow in the grace (charis) and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ." (2 Peter 3:18 NASB)
Charis Christian Academy exists to partner with parents and their church to educate, equip, and empower its students to pursue and fulfill their God-given destiny and purpose in Christ.

Philosophy of Education
Parents are a child's greatest teacher. Charis Christian Academy supplements the work of the family by providing its students a biblical foundation and world view through traditional education that is Christ-centered so that they may know the truth, reason in truth, and be persuasive for the truth.
