Heritage Baptist Academy was founded in 1989 as a Christ-centered, biblically-based Christian day school by five Baptist churches: Berean Baptist Church, Bethel Baptist Church, Cooper Baptist Church, Northeastern Baptist Church, and Westwood Baptist Church.

Initial enrollment was 89 students in grades K-8. Enrollment grew steadily, and in 1994 the name Baptist was changed to Christian in order to more accurately represent our student body.

HCA purchased 42 acres on 9th Street in 1996, and in 2000, opened its main campus building with a multi-purpose room, 14 classrooms and offices. Our facilities expanded in 2004 to house K-3 in a modular building, with grades 4-12 in the main building. Today, we now have added Pre-K’s in the modular with K-2 and grades 3-12 in the main building.
