Heritage Academy believes that the home school can provide a superior environment for genuine Christian education.
Home schooling places the responsibility for education squarely on the shoulders of parents.
Home schooling allows the parents to determine what their children shall learn, and affords parents the opportunity to teach their children to think Christianly.
It also provides an atmosphere in which children may be trained to seek god's glory in all that they do.
Finally, home schooling permits parents literally to obey god's command to teach their children in the midst of daily life.
Heritage Academy assists local Christian families to home school their children by offering advise, programs, meetings, accountability, networking, extra curricular activities, field trips, contests, transcripts, classes and oversight.
