Extremely outdated curriculum and testing materials. Too accellerated for children to firmly grasp concepts which is why most have private tutors on top of pricey tuition. Way too much homework for grade level including Wednesdays when children should be available for church activities. Many text books are secular, not Christian based. Very limited sports and extracurricular clubs and activities even compared to similar schools. Very complicated, outdated, and expensive uniform requirements. Love most of the teachers but very poor underhanded administration running this previously reputable school into the ground. It seems good on the surface but look elsewhere for a quality Christian education.
Heritage Christian Academy is a classical Christian college preparatory education. The children are prepared to go out into the world and be successful in whatever they choose to do. They are taught in a safe, nurturing environment. The children are educated in French and Latin and submerged in classic literature. The school has 17 years of success. Tuition is a small price to pay to know that my children will be educated in an environment where it is not against the law to pray and read the Bible. "Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it." Proverbs 22:6. Worth every penny!!! Just go visit and talk with Mrs. Rogers and your child's life will be changes forever!
This is a great school! Not for the faint of heart... Be prepared to work. This school is small and has a family like atmosphere. It has a large grassy area for the kids to play behind the building and nice shaded areas to play on the play ground equipment. It is a Christian school, so the education is philosophically in line with Christianity (which I love!). They have a great balance of truth and love for the kids. It is expensive, but they do have financial aid programs if you are willing to volunteer ever so often and what not, say with the pick up and drop of line or something.
I have taught in private schools and public schools, as well as American Embassy schools overseas. The curriculum and level of learning taught at Heritage Christian Academy is the best I have experienced. The teachers love the children, the leadership is excellent and the standards are the highest.
Heritage is an excellent school my daughter started kindergarten there and is now in the first grade. She is learning the basics and excelling. Along with the teachers and staff, the classical education is by far the best curriculum i have seen.
