A Holistic Approach to Education
Chapel Hill Academy (CHA) is Lena Pope’s open-enrollment, tuition-free public charter school serving children in Pre-K through 5th grades. The school achieves exceptional academic outcomes by integrating social-emotional learning alongside evidence-based curricula, addressing the needs of the whole child and actively engaging families.
Teachers at CHA know the distinct needs of each child in the class and tailor the learning experience to meet specific needs. In addition to academic curriculum, CHA utilizes the Second Step curriculum for Social Emotional Learning. Students in all grades begin each week with SEL lessons that range from teaching steps to problem solving, to learning how to regulate emotions.
The staff and educators at CHA actively work to engage parents in the educational process. The school offers Parent University classes, and hosts workshops to equip parents with vital skills to nurture eager learners. Lena Pope provides wrap-around services to families at CHA, including counseling/therapy and other assistance as needed.
Chapel Hill Academy has received the highest possible accountability rating from the Texas Education Agency (TEA). The school was selected as a 2016 Honor Roll School in the Star Schools category by Educational Results Partnership for high achievement in student success. CHA is one of only nine elementary school designees in Tarrant County for the recognition, and the only charter school.
CHA utilizes a lottery process for enrollment. Applications are typically accepted beginning in January each year. For more information, click here.
