Please be reminded that Heritage Academy students enrolled in grades K, 2, 4, 6, and 8 are expected to participate in Stanford Achievement Testing; the school is pleased to provide testing for these students at no cost to their families.

Unless your family takes initiative to appeal this expectation, we will plan for your student to be present and we will have all the necessary testing materials in place for his/her participation.


Heritage Academy Families: For current Heritage students who are not enrolled in the mandatory testing grades and homeschooled children of Heritage families, the following rates apply: $35 for first student; $30 for additional students.

Home School Families: $40.00 per student

To register your student(s) for testing, please complete and return the form on the website

to Heritage Academy no later than Friday, March 1, 2019.

Late registrations will be assessed a $10 late fee (per student) or may not be accepted if all slots are filled.

Parent proctors are also needed. A small stipend of $10.00 per day is provided to parents who contribute this way. Please be sure to indicate on the registration form or email the office, if you would like to do this:

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).
