This school offers a phenomenal education, small classroom sizes, and loving, caring teachers. I am an educator, so I am very particular when it comes to my children's education. Before my son first attended Heritage, I visited every legitimate pre-school in the area, and none met my expectations, that is, until I sat down with Mrs. Williams, the principal. Now, both of my children attend this school: prek-3, and 1st grade, and they love going to school. My son was taught script when he was in Kindergarten, and my daughter who is 3 is learning letters, letter sounds, and beginning writing skills. There just isn't enough that I can say about this school. We are relocating, and this school, and it's high quality, christian-centered education is the ONLY thing I will miss about NY.

My child atteneded Heritage for 6 months. Unfortunately we had to relocate and she was unable to continue her education their. However, I would highly recommend Heritage for anyone who wants to provide their child with an excellent education and spiritual foundation. The staff and especially the principal Mrs. williams operate with a spirit of 'excellence' . I chose Heritage out of 5 other christian schools in the area and was most impressed by Mrs. willims Knowledge and pride in her school. They use the ABEKA program which has placed my 5 year old daughter on a fast track. She learned to read in her short 6 month stay. Heritage also instills pride and discipline that is needed to foster a childs confidence in their academic abilities. I am saddened that I could not continue to be apart of such a wonderful school. If you choose Heritage you wont be dissapointed.

My son is enrolled in the pre-k class at Heritage Christian Academy. It is a wonderful school. The school offers a superior education, great structure, and the staff is terrific. I love that my son is reading, and writing, and he very recently turned 5. He is learning all the basics along with a solid christian education, at an extremely reasonable cost.

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.
