Keeping the Faith and Keeping Connected

Beloved, although I was very eager to write to you about our common salvation, I found it necessary to write appealing to you to contend for the faith that was once for all delivered to the saints.

12th Grade Fundraiser Lunch This Friday-Nacho Bar

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 12th-grade students. The students will be serving Chinese food and the cost is $5.00.

Box Top Collection

We will be collecting box tops until Wednesday, October 23rd. The box top program is transitioning away from cutting them off the boxes and moving to an app-based program. You will still find some products that have the cutout box tops, but most of them now have a digital box top that will require you to scan your receipt, within two weeks of purchase, into the box top app. You can find the app in the Apple app store or on Google Play. When you download the app search for Heritage Academy of Columbia. See the link below for more information


Due to weather the Harvest Festival will be in the Fellowship Hall at Heritage Academy!

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).
