Welcome to Heritage Academy!
We look forward to sharing with you the Univeristy Model of schooling for primary, elementary, and secondary students. At Heritage Academy, we offer a Christian education which combines the best of home and school. We encourage you to browse the tabs to the right. Take a look at the steps to admissions, current tuition costs, and our philosophy of partnership.
Parent Information Presentation (PIP)
Attending a Parent Information Presentation is the first step in the admissions process. RSVP is required to attend a PIP and receive an application packet. It is helpful for the school office to have an estimate of how many families will be attending. Contact the office if you plan to attend at 573-449-2252 or email@example.com.
Specific dates for PIPs are listed on the Inquire tab above.
In recognition that there can be no preferential treatment with God (Romans 2:11), Heritage Academy admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic or other school-administered programs.
Heritage Academy is a non-denominational ministry. Heritage families attend over 50 different churches in Columbia and Mid-Missouri. The official Non-denominational Position of Heritage Academy states, "Neither Heritage Academy nor its ministries, when acting as representatives of Heritage Academy, shall promote or disparage any doctrinal or denominational beliefs, practices, or positions upon which the ministry has assumed no official stance (Philippians 2:1-4)."
Because parents are directly involved in the teaching process in the home classroom, many special needs can be addressed at home by the parents. Parents are encouraged to communicate freely and often with their student’s teachers. Heritage Academy teachers have been strongly encouraged to employ flexibility in their classroom techniques and to use teaching methods that appeal to a broad spectrum of learning styles. However, Heritage Academy is not currently equipped to significantly modify instructional practices or to modify evaluation procedures in response to a particular student’s learning disability or other special challenges. All students will be graded according to a common standard rather than upon individualized standards developed in response to special needs.
