The school's name "Heritage Christian Academy" is reflective of our rich heritage in Christian education and our commitment to Christ through excellence in the classroom and beyond. Our faculty is composed of highly qualified and committed teachers. They provide a rigorous academic program within a nurturing and supportive environment. Our class sizes are small by design to provide the opportunity for individualized attention for every student. At Heritage, your children are seen as uniquely gifted and created in the image of God.

Our mission is to assist Christian parents in their responsibility to equip students for life through academics and service to Christ. The school years are some of the most important in a child's life. At Heritage Christian Academy, we exist to partner with parents in a vital ministry: the spiritual, academic, and social development of children. HCA students are mentored to grow in knowledge, wisdom, character and faith. Plan a tour today. We encourage you to visit us and experience this special place for yourself!
