An Invitation to Parents
Welcome to the Heritage family!
Parents have a variety of options today for their children's education. Thank you for considering Heritage Academy for your child's education. As a University-Model®️ School, we strive to provide quality Christian education which strengthens family relationships. Our mission is to partner with Christian parents to prepare college-worthy character witnesses for Jesus Christ. Three distinctive features set Heritage Academy apart from other schooling options you may be considering. Let me briefly describe what makes Heritage unique.
Heritage Academy is a Christian school. Above all, the desire of Heritage Academy and each of our families is to bring glory to God in His Son, Jesus Christ. While the school is autonomous, and not affiliated with any denomination, it is the aim of our hearts and the purpose of our programs for Christ to be made manifest in the lives of our faculty, our staff, and our families. We strive to integrate faith and a biblical worldview into every course of study and school activity.
Heritage Academy is a College Preparatory school. As a University-Model®️ school, we strive to prepare our students for the college of their choice so that they are college ready on the day they step foot on campus. At Heritage, we teach towards mastery of concepts and students are able to advance academically on merit. Because of our University-Model®️ schedule, all classes function on an accelerated basis. In addition, we encourage all students to prepare for college entrance exams such as the ACT.
Heritage Academy is a collaborative approach to education. Compared to traditional schooling options, the University-Model®️ requires an unusually high level of parental partnership with teachers in each student’s academic progress. This opportunity for increased relational involvement with their students is the gift that University-Model®️ schooling offers to parents who are eager to walk along side their student(s) during some of the most formative years of life.
As you explore the contents of Heritage Academy's website, our hope is that you find greater clarity for the decisions your family is considering.
