An Invitation to Parents
With the numerous options that parents have today for their children’s education, we are pleased to offer you the Heritage Advantage, and we are grateful for the opportunity to help you decide whether our school is the best educational choice for your family. Our purpose is to help parents send out educated servants of Jesus Christ by blending the best of home with the best of college-preparatory education. Three distinctive features set Heritage Academy apart from other schooling options you may be considering. Let me briefly describe these characteristics.
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 our 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 students are able to advance academically on merit and all classes function on an accelerated basis. In addition, we take ACT/SAT prep seriously and encourage all students to prepare for college entrance exams.
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 students during some of the most formative years of their lives.
As you explore the contents of Heritage Academy website, our hope is that you find greater clarity for the decisions your family is considering.
