The resolve of Mrs. June Anderson is the same as it was when she and Pastor Anderson first heeded God’s prompting to build a Christian School. They yearned to see a God-honoring school with a strong Biblical foundation, where in every classroom, every day, students would hear the truth of Scripture, skillfully woven into the academic lessons. It was their desire that deep relationships would be built among teachers and students, based on Christ’s love for us. Pastor and Mrs. Anderson had the joy of seeing this vision fulfilled when Christian Heritage School was founded in 1977. The first classes began on September 7, 1977.
Pastor Paul & June Anderson accepted a call to Calvary Evangelical Free Church where they served for 37 years and during that time moved the church from Bridgeport to a new building in Trumbull, Connecticut and planted Beacon Hill Evangelical Free Church in Monroe, Connecticut.
In the 1970’s, Pastor and Mrs. Anderson believed that the ideologies in culture were moving away from a tolerance for Christian values in the public schools. They trusted God, acquired property, and provided the building to begin a school that initially would not have the burden of the cost of the facility in its fledgling years. They invited many churches in the surrounding communities to participate and support this new special ministry.
With over 1,200 CHS alumni and 39 graduating classes, the vision and faithfulness of the founders along with a faithful army of supporters have impacted a generation for Christ.
