In 1974, Chandler Christian School was founded as a ministry of Chandler Church of the Nazarene. It was the church’s desire to offer the best possible academic and Christian education as a non-profit, interdenominational outreach of the church. Since then, thousands of students have been educated, loved and witnessed to through this ministry. Some of these same students have returned as parents and staff members.
In 2008, San Tan Christian Academy was founded as an independent, Christian middle school. The founders understood that the middle school years are major transitional years. It was their goal to not only provide a quality education based on a firm foundation of God’s word, but to also be a source to help during the journey each student travels while discovering God’s plan for their lives.
In May of 2012, Chandler Church of the Nazarene presented San Tan Christian Academy with the opportunity to expand from a middle school to a preschool-eighth grade school by acquiring Chandler Christian School. Hence, Chandler Christian Academy was born on July 1, 2012. It is a non-profit, non-denominational independent Christian preschool through eighth grade where the traditions and successes of Chandler Christian School are blended with the vision and opportunity of San Tan Christian Academy to create a dynamic loving learning environment.
Chandler Christian Academy is grateful for all those who have invested in both schools over the years. The school recognizes and appreciates all the sacrifices that were made to support Christian education. As a result of these selfless acts, Chandler Christian Academy has a rich history to remind it of where it came from and the experience to continue providing students with an excellent education in a Christ-centered environment.
