HERITAGE ACADEMY began when God encouraged an administrator/ founding board member and a teacher from The King’s Academy to take their love of Christ and their love for children from the secondary to the elementary level. They had the vision of helping parents raise children who yearn for learning, respect others, and truly love and honor Christ.
HERITAGE ACADEMY opened on September 2, 2008, at Union Presbyterian Church with two staff members, eleven full-time and seven part-time students. Each child brought his/her own learning style, personality, strengths, and learning challenges. A five-person Board of Directors was established, and, along with a committee of interested parents, wrote the HERITAGE ACADEMY mission statement articulating the school’s focus:
HERITAGE ACADEMY exists to partner with parents in raising up excited learners who grow as Christ-lovers and to foster a community where kids are known.
HERITAGE ACADEMY is at full student capacity with 13 staff members who service grades Kindergarten through 6th. As you enter each room you will encounter happy, engaged students intent on learning. Small class sizes, passionate teachers, stunning curriculum, involved parents, and an open-door administration policy have proven to be the keys to raising up excited learners at HERITAGE ACADEMY. The students work diligently as they move from one subject to the next directed by teachers who are constantly moving about the room to guide the student learning. Standardized test scores averaging 3.5-grade levels above the norm show evidence that our “stunning curriculum meeting passion teachers” is a highly successful model for education.
In 2017 Heritage Academy celebrates its 10th year. We are grateful that our God-given vision for proving a community where students are known and encouraged as individuals has provided great student success for several hundred families. We look forward to continued blessing for many years to come.
