Christian Heritage School completes faith campaign
The Board of Directors of Christian Heritage School announced the completion of the “Heritage of Faith” campaign last week.
This campaign is one of the larger campaigns in the school’s 39-year history.
As of June 9, students had raised $1.5 million in cash and pledges for the CHS endowment. By completing this goal CHS will meet the conditions set by the Heritage Foundation and receive as a gift, all buildings and properties associated with CHS.
In 1977, the Heritage Foundation acquired property and built a facility for Christian Heritage School. This allowed this fledgling school to establish itself academically and financially to the point that they are now recognized as one of the finest Christian schools in the nation.
The Heritage Foundation was established in 1966 by the Rev. and Mrs. Paul H. Anderson and their three sons, Barton, Bradley and Timothy. The late Paul Anderson was pastor of Calvary Evangelical Free Church in Trumbull for 37 years. His wife, June, is the daughter of the late GW Aldeen, who founded Amerock Tool Company, which merged with Stanley Tools.
It has always been the vision and desire of the Heritage Foundation to establish a school which intentionally promotes an enduring love for learning and serving God. “This is a defining moment for Christian Heritage School,” states Scott Marcello, chairman of the board of directors at CHS. “We will now carry on the faithfulness of those who went before us – their vision, courage and sacrifice for an authentic and Christ-centered education.”
Christian Heritage School is located on a 6 acre campus along White Plain Road in Trumbull. The campus is comprised of 4 residences, 4 academic buildings, a student-life center, a playground, soccer field, and a student life center. It is accredited by NEASC and currently has 430 students in grades K-12.
