FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Are you affiliated with a church?
No. We are a separate non-profit organization and responsible to our own Board of Directors.


Have you adopted the Common Core State Standards for your school? 
No, we have not adopted the CCSS, nor do we ever intend to. At Heritage Academy, our Classical Christian academic standards are raising the bar on education. Although Heritage Academy is aware of the CCSS, we have chosen a curriculum that provides a comprehensive program utilizing the Core Knowledge Academic Sequence for grades K – 8 through the lens of God’s Word.  We teach a Biblical worldview in all subjects.

Do you assign homework?
Heritage Academy maintains that students who are held to high academic standards and are encouraged to use class time will become motivated learners that are as equally successful as learners given busy-work homework. Therefore, Heritage Academy teachers expect students to read nightly, study for upcoming tests, or complete necessary review. Beyond such expectations, Heritage Academy encourages and is committed to honoring nightly family time.

Do you have a dress code?
Yes. Students wear solid color polo shirts with navy blue, black, or khaki pants, shorts, jumpers, or skorts. Athletic shoes are required for P.E. Students wear solid color sweaters and sweatshirts, and Heritage Academy sweatshirts are available for purchase through Lands End.

What are school hours of operation?
Kindergarteners start at 8:30 and are released at 1:30. Students in grades 1-5 start school at 8:30 and are released at 3:00. Students in grades 6-8 start school at 8:30 and are released at 3:30. Students may arrive by 8:20 and Circle Prayer takes place each morning in the Fellowship Hall at 8:27.

What is your discipline policy?
We believe that children should be respectful at all times and that they should honor the directions given by the teacher or other HERITAGE ACADEMY adult. When there is a problem, we immediately try to discover if it was disobedience or mere childhood irresponsibility. Childhood irresponsibility is handled through re-training and re-directing. Deliberate disobedience could lead to a teacher “conference” with the child or children, an appropriate time-out, an apology (either verbal or written), a call home, and if needed, a conference with the student, the parents and the principal.

Do you have a PE and sports program?

We offer structured P.E. classes throughout the week for each grade level.

How can parents participate?
We love having parents on campus helping with class, cooking, art, and science projects, helping in the office and with “clean-up/move out” on Fridays, occasional grading, and with parties. We welcome parents to become involved as room parents or aids, field trip organizers and drivers.

Do you have a Board of Directors?
Yes, the principal is responsible to a Board of Directors. The Board oversees policy and finances.


Do you accept donations?
Yes. HERITAGE ACADEMY is a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation and any donations are fully tax deductible.

"At HERITAGE ACADEMY, without exception, the kids experience unconditional love and respect. We also appreciate the positive and safe environment."

"It has been great to be a part of a school community with shared values in placing Christ at the center of our child's education."


Children are a heritage from the Lord...Psalm 127:3
