Heritage Academy Launches Student Success Center

In keeping with the vision and commitment to support parents in providing excellent training and college preparatory education for students, Heritage will be adding a Student Success Center. The intent will be to offer extra guidance and tutoring on Tuesdays and Thursdays to those struggling in their Heritage classes. Pam Tamerius is a veteran educator and longtime parent of this school (that would have enjoyed these benefits), is excited to serve as the Student Success Center coordinator. More information will be forthcoming as the program solidifies in the next couple of weeks.



All secondary students are welcome to attend our Yearbook Signing Party! Even if you didn't order a yearbook, come sign and see your friends' books!

Purchased yearbooks will be distributed at the party.

Meet in the Fellowship Hall after school, 3-4pm. Snacks included, of course!

Seniors and Parents Meeting

On September 20th from 6:30-8:00pm there will be a meeting for seniors and their parents with Mr. Ragsdell and Mr. Schnipper. At this meeting, we will discuss the senior timeline, Senior Celebrate, and Graduation, and more.

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).
