Christian High School, also known as CHS, is in O'Fallon, Missouri. The school mascot is the Eagle and the school colors are teal, black, and white.


The school started as an outgrowth of Living Word Christian School, an elementary school in Saint Peters, Missouri in St. Charles County. In 1999, Tom Hughes donated 20 acres (81,000 m2) of real estate to Living Word. With the help of donations, work was soon completed on the 60,000-square-foot (5,600 m2) building. As of the 2013-14 school year, they have joined forces with Westgate Christian Academy to create one school.


As of the 2008-2009, the school has been a member of the Missouri State High School Activities Association. This allows the athletic teams to compete on a higher level against larger private and smaller public schools. Their soccer team was coached by Hannibal Najjar, former coach of the country of Trinidad & Tobago. The 2009-2010 school year was the inaugural season for the school's football team, which finished with a 6-2 record at the JV level. In their inaugural varsity game they played against 5a Jackson High School. Although they were physically outmatched, they were able to compete up until the fourth quarter. Led by quarterback Brendan Norwine, who was responsible for all of Christian's points, the Eagles lost 50-36. Their cheerleaders compete at a national level and in 2010 received 7th place in their division nationally. The cheerleaders are coached by Cherie Danforth. Their dance team started in 2003, and now competes at a local level through MSHSAA. They are coached by Genie Meadows.
