Chamberlain-Hunt Academy is committed to its mission: "Knowledge and Wisdom in Submission to God." The staff and faculty believe that the Triune God revealed in the Bible as the Creator, Sustainer and Ruler of all things is the one true God and the sole source of all truth. Consequently, true education must focus on knowing that God. True education must be an active, ongoing part of a living faith. Therefore, Chamberlain-Hunt endeavors to provide true education to help Cadets understand God’s world and his purpose for their lives.
Discipline is essential to successful learning and living in God’s world. Chamberlain-Hunt Academy uses a military structure of discipline that is demanding. While it provides immediate consequences for infractions, it also rewards achievement. Discipline, rightly structured, teaches the positive side of humility and weakness: that one can and should rely on God’s strength and loving-kindness available through Jesus the Messiah. The Academy’s military structure does not prevent the cadets from having fun or engaging a wide variety of physical and cultural pursuits.
Truly, CHA aims to prepare its cadets to live a full life pleasing to the Lord Jesus. Proverbs 3:5-6 is CHA’s theme verse:
"Trust in the Lord with all your heart; lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him and he will direct your paths."
Since the purpose of life is to love and obey God, the Academy acknowledges God's authority and loving-kindness in every facet of life. For CHA cadets, these include academics, military structure, athletics and all extracurricular activities. Therefore, the Academy strives to equip and encourage cadets to live a purposeful life by providing them an environment that is conducive to godly pursuits.
The Academy’s daily discipline structure for all cadets follows a military model. This model makes cadets accountable for all their actions. They learn both that unwise choices bring undesirable consequences and that wise choices lead to increased authority, responsibility and privilege within the Corps. The cadet's uniform, his schedule and his work assignments are all prescribed, freeing him to concentrate on his principal task — the development of academic and moral excellence.
Within the military model, development of leadership qualities is stressed. Its structural hierarchy naturally demands leadership skills. Within that hierarchy, cadets can earn leadership positions in the Corps and the Crusaders.
The cadets can demonstrate leadership potential during physical training and organizational training exercises as well as in the classroom and dorm. The Sergeant Major conducts regular inspections of the dormitories to ensure their cleanliness.
The structure also rewards cadets with a 3.0 GPA or higher for their academic achievement. Such rewards include free weekends and private study hall among others.
Chamberlain-Hunt Academy is committed to its mission: “Knowledge and Wisdom in Submission to God.” The staff and faculty believe that the Triune God — Father, Son and Holy Spirit — revealed in the Bible as the Creator, Sustainer and Ruler of all things is the one true God and the sole source of all truth. Consequently, true education must focus on knowing that God. True education must be an active, ongoing part of a living faith: as we know God better, we better understand his world and his purpose for our lives. This perspective motivates the Academy to adhere to the highest standards of academic excellence in its college preparatory curriculum.
