Parent Information Presentation (PIP)
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.
