Heritage Christian Academy

Our Mission

"To prepare students for a life of service by teaching, modeling and encouraging Biblical principles while pursuing academic excellence."

Our Vision

  • To develop strong Christian character by providing excellence in education with a distinctly biblical perspective.
  • To serve a growing student body through excellence in personnel and facilities as an extension of the Christian family and the local church.
  • To expand spiritual involvement and financial resources from individuals, families, churches, and the community.

Our Philosophy

We believe that the Bible is the only Word of God; infallible, without error or omission, which serves as the standard and guide for all we do and say. Therefore, we believe that the process of equipping a child for a lifetime of Christian service starts in the home.

It is the goal of the school to be a tool available to the parent(s) or legal guardian(s) to aid in the process of bringing the child up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord spiritually, academically, physically, and socially.

Our Core Values

  • God First
    We strive to keep God first in our thoughts, attitudes and actions.
    "In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths." –Proverbs 3:6
  • Biblical Standards
    We believe the Bible is the only Word of God, infallible, without error or omission, which serves as the standard and guide for all we do and say.
    "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works." –II Timothy 3:16, 17
  • Love Others
    We believe that love for others, as commanded by Christ, is imperative for effective leadership and operation.
    "Beloved, let us love one another; for love is of God, and every one that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God." –I John 4:7
  • Family
    We protect and support the individual family unit.
    "And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart; and thou shalt teach them diligently unto the children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up." –Deuteronomy 6:6
  • Local Church
    We acknowledge the God-given importance of the local churches and therefore seek their shared wisdom as we serve.
    "I write so that you may know how you ought to conduct yourself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and foundation of the truth." -I Timothy 3:15
  • Christ-Centered Curriculum
    We challenge all students to academic and spiritual achievement through a high-quality Christ-centered curriculum.
    "Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth." -II Timothy 2:15
  • Integrity
    We believe that personal and corporate integrity, enabled by accountability to God and one another, is necessary to guard the word of truth.
    "Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on thee." -Psalm 25:21

Expected Student Outcomes

Our students will SOAR on wings like eagles!

Isaiah 40:31 but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

Students will SOAR by learning to hope in the Lord so that they may grow spiritually (in favor with God), occupationally (physically, in stature), academically (in wisdom), and relationally (in favor with man) like Jesus.

Luke 2:52 And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.
