Parenting and Partnering Seminar November 5th

In an effort to encourage one another towards partnership, we have planned a seminar focusing on this topic for Monday, November 5 (8-10 AM). All Heritage parents are invited and encouraged to attend.

This will be a fun opportunity to meet other parents and exchange ideas related to partnering and parenting towards success at Heritage Academy.

Our Agenda:

8:15-9:00 — Partnership at Heritage Academy

9:00-9:15 — Break and fellowship (with snacks)

9:15-10:00 — 7 Building Blocks of a Healthy Home


After school on Monday, November 26, 3-4: 30pm, teams of 1-4 will be decorating doors in the school for Christmas. The theme is: "Merry and Bright." Sign up your team and have a design plan to Mrs. King by Friday, November 16th. Elementary students must have a parent for each team.


"Academy Kids" Elementary Theater: Students attending the Friday afternoon theater club are working hard on perfecting their skit, "The Modern Day Story of King Josiah". They will be performing for the secondary students at lunch November 9th, at the Winter Showcase and at the Solstice Senior Living center.

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).
