We couldn't be more pleased with the education our daughter is receiving at HCA. The class size and 'common sense' curriculum has her leaps and bounds above her public school peers. More importantly for us, the biblical knowledge she has acquired has her teaching us many things we did not know. The teachers are all highly qualified and are all committed to excellence in education and character development for our students. Heritage is definitely a hidden jewel in our community.

An as alum of Heritage I directly experienced a wonderful, safe atmosphere at school. I had great and caring teachers that truly wanted to me to succeed. I had a great education that prepared me for a preparatory high school which ultimately led me to success in college and graduate school.

We moved to SC from another state. We've visited several schools prior to making the decision to enroll our son in Heritage. This is a wonderful school. We especially love the family like atmosphere which is fostered by the administration. The curriculum can be challenging but we view it as a payoff in the long term. I already see our son making an amazing progress in very challenging subjects such as math and languages and he is further ahead than his peers going to public schools, not mentioning the knowledge and appreciation of the Bible that is taught daily in the school and evident even in young children and how they treat each other. Lovely school overall and a blessing to our family.

Great math and science curriculum in the lower school. Reading lists need to be updated in addition to keeping the classics. There are a few long standing teachers that are holding this school together. They are excellent. There is some surprising student immaturity on occasion. Planned school wide events need to be less performance based with more room allowed for the Holy Spirit to be present at this Christian school. This school is far too small to have an abundance of extra curricular activities offered, however, there are plenty of activities in the local community to seek out. The lines have blurred between parent and school employee. Far too many parents are hired as employees which might be compromising the integrity of this school. There is a perception that some overly involved parents are trying to micromanage every aspect of Heritage. Rework administration and hire from outside of the school. Focus more on keeping Christ in the center of all things at this Christian school.

My husband and I prayed to find the best possible Christian education for our child and we found it at Heritage! There are so many great things about this school: small class size, caring teachers, well-behaved students, and an outstanding curriculum. We are pleased that the curriculum is classical and includes a biblical worldview in all subject areas. We are also pleased that manuscript and cursive handwriting are taught in the lower grades and that reading is viewed as a developmental process. The reading program is the best we have seen! At first we were concerned that a private Christian school would be too expensive, but the tuition is extremely affordable. We are very thankful that such a wonderful school doesn't have to be a financial burden. The value of instruction far outweighs the cost of tuition! Since beginning at Heritage, we have seen our child grow socially, spiritually, and academically. We are happy that the school considers education a partnership with parents so that we can be involved in our child's education. We consider the school an extension of our family and have built wonderful relationships with fellow families!

My daughter came to Heritage Christian Academy from public school a few years ago. My husband and I have been amazed at how well the students behave, how respectful they are, how much individual attention they receive from the teachers, and how well the students rise to the level of the challenging curriculum. With the smaller class sizes, the teachers are able to give students more than ample attention, and with the peaceful and respectful atmosphere, they can accomplish exponentially more than in a larger class setting. Students start the day with prayer and Bible reading. In addition to my daughter growing in her academic achievement level, her spiritual maturity has deepened and her self-confidence is solidifying. She is no longer lost in the crowd like she was at her previous school. The homework was an adjustment for my daughter when she first arrived because she was not challenged at her previous school and had never had to apply herself to her school work. Several years in now, she is organized, disciplined, and her homework is completed in a neat and orderly fashion. More than anything, my family loves the support, open communication with teachers, and character development that occurs at Heritage Christian Academy. Heritage is a smaller school and does not offer as many extracurricular options as other schools, but I consider that an issue of minimal importance when compared with what my daughter is receiving in quality education, character training, and closely knit relationships with her classmates, teachers, and administrators.
