"All your works shall give thanks to you, O Lord, and all your saints shall bless you! They shall speak of the glory of your kingdom and tell of your power, to make known to the children of man your mighty deeds, and the glorious splendor of your kingdom. Your kingdom is an everlasting kngdom, and your dominion endures throughout all generations."

~Psalm 145:10-13

Teacher Appreciation Meals-Only a few more volunteers needed

Thank you parents for signing up to help with the teacher appreciation meals, we only have a few more spots to fill.

About the teacher appreciation meals, Mr. Lindaman said, "I love it because after nearly 30 years in the public school, getting a piece of pie once a year was a treat. But here we get an entire feast multiple times during the school year."

If you would be willing to help please click on the link below for the sign up list. If you have any questions please email Anita Lee.

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.

Pep Rally September 14th

Heritage Academy's fall sports pep rally will be Friday September 14th from 9:45-10:15am. Come support our girls volleyball and boys soccer teams. Parents and other family members of the athletes and students are invited to attend.

Friday during community life time all of the secondary students will gather together for student council elections. The students will listen to speeches made by those running for president and vice president of each class. The students will also vote on Friday for the positions in each class.

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).
