  • Mr. Brian Gray

    Greetings Cross Hill Academy,

    I BELIEVE in Cross Hill Academy families and students!

    We had another good year of academic growth last year and are ready to do even better this year. We BELIEVE that each of our students are gifted in many ways and it is our intention to explore their talents as they academically climb to even higher levels of achievement!

    Families, remember that we are a uniform school. This is more important than ever as we continue to have two schools at our location. All students must wear tan or khaki pants/skirts/shorts with a hunter green or light blue top. We believe that the children at CHA were more proud of our school last year than ever before. If you have concerns about the uniform, please email me and I will assist the family in getting the items needed to comply. Last year we were at around 80% compliant. Now the need is far greater due to the increase in enrollment of both schools; we must able to identify students quickly by school and uniforms help us with that. I Believe ALL students can be in uniform daily.

    I am excited and cannot wait for you all to return to school.

    Sincerely,

    Brian Gray
