51. Embracing the Family’s Role in Education with Melissa Mohr of City On A Hill Christian Academy

In today’s episode, we are chatting with Melissa Mohr, Head of School at City On A Hill Christian Academy. Melissa has been in the private school setting for 19 years and in education for even longer.

City On A Hill opened in the fall of 2022 after Melissa and a group of educators saw a need for another schooling option and teamed up to fill that need. In its inaugural year, the school had over 50 students in attendance from grades K5 through 12.

With classes capped at 15 students, the school is set to begin its second year in the fall with close to 100 students. With a four-day in-class week, Biblical integration is at the forefront of their curriculum. Fridays are utilized as homeschool days with enrichment activities to support what they’ve learned in class.

Tune in to hear more about this young and exciting schooling option!
