- An interdenominational Christian school founded in 1981, Heritage Christian Academy serves students ages 3 through Grade 12. The distinctives of a Heritage education are individual attention in a Christ-filled environment. Families, Teachers, Staff, Administrators and School Board are dedicated to fostering and maintaining this approach through Truth, Service, Excellence, and Relationship.
- A recent Chapel message was delivered by Heritage Alum and current Middle/High School instructor, Kate Heintzleman. Her message to our students may be summarized simply as this: "the advantage of a being a student here at Heritage? To be KNOWN."

We have appreciated how well HCA prepared our daughter for admission and ongoing success at a selective university, the University of Minnesota. HCA has high academic standards and cares about character and biblical training - all very important to my husband and me. Our daughter had plenty of leadership development experiences, and the extra-curricular opportunities were plentiful! Band, orchestra, theatre, spring formal events, honor society, service projects, and well-trained sports teams with highly qualified coaches (including teams that have competed at the state level!) Thank you, Heritage Christian Academy! Please keep the high standards and biblical priority!
