Keeping the Faith and Keeping Connected

October 3, 2019

So we are always of good courage. We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, for we walk by faith, not by sight.

2 Corinthians 5:6-7


This Friday is SPIRIT FRIDAY

Fundraiser Lunch Every Friday For The Next 6 Fridays

Each semester we ask the secondary grades to do a fundraiser lunch. The money they raise from this semester's fundraiser lunch will be used to make their auction basket for the Heritage Academy Trivia Night. This Friday's fundraiser lunch is put on by the 10th-grade class. They will be serving pizza and the cost for the whole meal is only $5.00. The lunch is available to all elementary and secondary students.

Old School Values, New School Schedule

Heritage Academy is a University-Model® School, facilitating students' access to excellent education, increased time with family, and opportunities for growth toward maturity while providing a cost-effective, college-preparatory education. In an age where family life is becoming increasingly fragmented, the unique structure of the model also serves to “turn the hearts of fathers to their children, and the hearts of children to their fathers ” (Malachi 4:6).
