Heritage Christian School believes that the teaching of biblical truths cannot be relegated solely to the home and church when children are being taught opposing worldviews at school. Therefore, HCS strives for academic excellence using curriculum that teaches from a biblical world view, presented in a loving Christian environment that reinforces rather than erodes the values of the Christian home and church.
SMALL CLASS SIZESClasses at Heritage are capped at 20 students. Small class sizes allow our teachers to not only teach in anindividualized manner, but also disciple the students in their classrooms
Each day presents an academically challenging opportunity for our students. Most students perform a year ahead of the national averages, and when 8th graders graduate, guidance counselors at the local high schools recommend that Heritage students take Advanced Placement courses their freshman year.
A COMMUNITY OF FAMILIES AND STAFF
The families at Heritage are a well-connected community. Parents and staff maintain close relationships to ensure that each child is getting their individual needs met. We believe each child to be a unique creation of God’s own image. Our passionate staff desires to see these children live out their God-given potential and glorify Him with their gifts.
