About CHC

Welcome from Head of School, Kati Melton

Cherry Hills Christian School provides Preschool through Grade 8 private education centered on the heart of Christ. At CHC, we believe in providing a nurturing and inspiring environment where students can grow academically, spiritually, and socially. Our school is more than just a place of learning; it is a community where families and educators come together to shape the lives of our students.

God has blessed Cherry Hills Christian School with a mission to educate the whole child – heart, soul, mind, and strength. Now, more than ever, we are committed to preparing students to live fully for God in a rapidly changing world. We believe God created every child as His divine masterpiece, capable as learners and uniquely gifted for His purpose.

Serving others is at the heart of Cherry Hills Christian School, and our staff derives immense joy from fulfilling that aspect of the school’s mission. We are committed to equipping the next generation of students to grow in depth and understanding of their relationship with Christ and to live as God’s beloved children with unique strengths, skills and callings of their own.

Celebrating almost 40 years, we live out our mission by educating students and creating a community full of compassion, prayer, safety, love, and support for one another. By joining Cherry Hills Christian School in Highlands Ranch, Colorado, your family will become a part of our community and grow in our mission.


Cherry Hills Christian School awakens the educational experience by preparing students to live fully for God in a rapidly changing world, knowing they are His masterpieces uniquely designed for His purpose. Fully His…Heart. Soul. Mind. Strength.

As our mission states, each one of the areas within the “Portrait of a Graduate” serves as a check and balance for our students.

  • Are their hearts alive, growing deeply, and understanding their relationship with Christ?
  • Are our students living with anchored souls, knowing they are God’s unique masterpieces?
  • Are their minds academically prepared, inquisitive, and challenged?
  • Are they producing good fruit because they have abiding strength in the Lord?
