I am a former student of Heartland. The teachers and students are nice, but it should be noted that the school uses curriculum from Accelerated Christian Education, the factual accuracy of which is highly questionable. Any parent considering enrolling their child should carefully research A.C.E. and what it teaches.

Great school! Excellent teachers! Proven curriculum! I couldn't say enough great things about Heartland Christian Homeschool Center!

The teachers love their students and the principle is loving, approachable and involved. It is a small school, but the kids learn accountability, ownership of their schedule and the parents are welcomed to be a part of the education and receive support on the homeschool aspect.

Tired of the public school homework grind? Exhausted from the private school rat race? Then Heartland is the school for you. We are so glad to have found a place where our children can be their geeky-book loving-academic selves, all the while being cheered on by teachers and friends alike. The students here are truly Christ-like in their acceptance of others, including new students immediately in all parts of their school experience. The staff is well trained, gently strict, encouraging and really appreciative of the "gift" that each child is. Our children are getting an excellent education as compared to other families that we know, families that use both public and private schools. The big difference between us and them is that we still have the time to BE a family. All that and a GaGa court - it doesn't get any better!

I love this school. My older ones go to Foothills. However this one was actually closer to my home for the lower grades. I am so glad we picked it. My daughter is quite shy and has blossomed here. The school staff is amazing. The teachers make her feel so welcome. We love it.

Great school! Such a warm and caring staff. It's both a joy and a relief to know my children are in such an environment full of such special people! Truly a God send!!

This has been my 9th grader's first year at Hearland. We really like the 3 days at school and 2 days at home. The PACE curriculum works well with the parents participating on the 'At Home Days'--The parents have answer books for correcting their students work. The PACE student workbooks contain all the information needed for a complete curriculum, but in my opinion it is not too interesting. The teachers seem very caring and the principal is very positive and encouraging. Being a smaller school, the kids are very friendly and made my student feel welcome right away. ( A curriculum upgrade and a few more electives, would make this school perfect.) Submitted by a parent I also submitted the rewiew below and some how it only has 2 stars but I intended to rate it 5 stars.

My daughter is a 9th grader at Heartland and has never felt the sense of belonging that she has had here from day one. This school welcomes you and makes you feel like an extended family member. Math her worst subject has now become her favorite. Heartland we love you!

My daughter loves Heartland and wakes up excited and happy to do her schooling there. Her teacher is creative, prepared, and we love the school so much. A less expensive alternative to private Christian schools and the 3 day a week program helps her not be a 'homeschool' nerd.

Two of my kiddos went here, and it is a terrific alternative to homeschooling, the kids are still homeschooled but in classes with peirs who are well assisted to learn by instructors who are able to help each child with their individual curriculums as they each learn in their own self decorated open cubicles. Parent involvment is a must as it is at home with homeschooling. Classes are 3 or 4 days a week (parents choice) and run K-12. School is not too big not too small, staff is very family oriented and treat your children as such.

We are so blessed to be a part of HCHC. The principal and the teachers are so highly motivated to teach and love our children. I needed the help in organizing schoolwork and keeping up to date with paperwork, so HCHC has been a lifesaver in many areas. My children are doing so well academically and they have built strong God friendships along the way. I am thankful that God lead us to them.

Parents are highly involved in the homeschooling center which offers 2 and 3 day enrollment options for school days. Loving, Christian teachers oversee children with individualized work using the PACE curriculum from ACE. Parents are encouraged to augment the curriculum and customize their child's education.

My child's behavior,outlook and grades have improved noticably in this school and at home. I value the difference the assistance and 'backing' that this christian based pogram and the caring adults can make in my child's life. The ability I have, to now be involved in my childs schoolwork goals, and to impress my moral standards without having them torn down day in and day out via public schools, is both relief and a joy! This school is an excellent learning environment!

About these ratings

The Community Rating is the school’s average rating from its community members (e.g., parents, students, and school staff). The highest possible rating is five stars; the lowest is one star.

We currently do not have any test score information for this school. Unlike public schools, private schools are not always required to report data about their schools or not required to take the same tests as public schools. Many private schools take different standardized tests; however, that information is often made available only to families of enrolled students. We strive to acquire additional private school data whenever available.
