Chapel Hill Academy Charter School
Since 1930, Lena Pope has been working with children and families to help create hope, happiness, and success. We believe that each child can achieve great things when they are encouraged to learn in ways that work for them. Chapel Hill Academy Charter School opens doors to this success and inspires hope for the future!
All interested applicants for the 2016-2017 school year are invited to a “come and go” Open House to tour the school and visit with CHA staff on Tuesday, February 23rd, from 5:00-7:00pm. Please note this is the only tour date available, so we encourage you to make plans to attend if you would like more information about our school. Thank you for your interest in Chapel Hill Academy!
