Trivia Night Sponsors

Heritage Academy is beginning to plan its annual Trivia Night fundraiser, and we need your help. All of us interact with businesses and companies that are willing to sponsor events if only asked. Businesses sponsor little league sports teams, boy scouts, girl scouts, etc. So, why not ask them to sponsor Heritage Academy’s Trivia Night Fundraiser? This fundraiser allows Heritage Academy to continue to thrive as a private, Christian school.

Follow the link to find the Become A Sponsor brochure, which describes the sponsorship levels in detail. You will also find the Sponsor Sheet that you will have the sponsors fill out and return to Heritage Academy with their check.

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).
