Heritage Christian School opened its doors for the first time in August of 1984. From 70 students in K5-9th grade, the school has grown to a student body of over 390 offering K4 through 12th grades. Begun as a ministry of Heritage Baptist Church, because of a burden and vision in the heart of Pastor Edwards and the church members, Heritage Christian School has served families as an extension of the Christian home for over 25 years.
God has guided, strengthened, and blessed the ministry of Heritage Christian School while bringing academically strong and spiritually focused staff and faculty to serve here. Called by God to help start the school, Pastor Kosa has been the school principal since the beginning. Through a low rate of staff turnover, God has provided stability and continuity to the ministry. Dedicated to the Lord from the beginning, Heritage Christian School’s ultimate purpose and aim is to bring glory to the Lord.
A combination of ABeka and Bob Jones curriculum in both the elementary and high school provides a strong academic foundation. Both general and advanced diplomas are available. A young person chooses which academic track they wish to pursue at the start of ninth grade.
While academics are a priority, many additional opportunities are available to the young people. In the elementary grades, computer, library, art, music, and physical education classes are included. Extra curricular activities include sports teams for both girls and boys, yearbook, band, choir, handbells etc.
Our mission is to assist parents to equip young people academically and spiritually to contend for the faith and engage culturally in a life of service for the Lord Jesus Christ. If this is your goal as a parent or student, Heritage Christian School may be the place for you!
