Heritage Academy’s mission statement:

We are dedicated to youth, their growth and development, and believe in building sound character through strong families, strong communities, and a strong nation.

While teaching the academic disciplines, Heritage Academy is dedicated to instilling into the minds and hearts of our youth knowledge of and respect for the ideals and values of the great men and women of history, including those who founded the American nation.

As they gain an appreciation of these people of accomplishment, they will be ready to provide the selfless service to their fellow citizens and to their country which will be required in the coming years to assist in restoring America’s greatness.

Heritage Academy exists to this end.

In back (on Drew Street):

  • For all lanes, pull as far north as you can. Do not drop off or pick up scholars by the junior high stairs. Please pull all the way up toward the dumpsters so we can keep traffic flowing and off Drew Street.
  • The far right lane is our designated Carpool Lane. Please use this lane if your carload needs extra time getting in and out of the car.
  • The left lane is for quick drop-off or pick up.
  • Keep the far left lane open for vehicles to exit. No stopping, loading, or unloading in this lane.
  • If you need to park during these rush hours, please use the City of Mesa parking lot west of Drew Street.
  • Scholars are expected to use the crosswalk and not J walk across Drew Street if they are crossing.

In front (on Center Street):

  • There is 10 minute parking at the front of the school. Mesa PD will issue a ticket if you U turn. Do not park in this space before or after school. If you are waiting for you scholar, park along 1st Avenue.
  • The alley will be closed for the next 12 months. The Heritage parking area will no longer be accessible from Main Street.


  • Scholars are welcome to drive to school. Parking permits are required and can be picked up at the front office. We suspect we will run out on the first day. We do not have enough spaces for everyone who wants to park – please carpool, if possible. Seniors and Juniors are given priority. Other free parking is along 1st Avenue and in the church parking lot south of campus (not FUMC).
  • Parking is becoming more difficult in downtown Mesa. The City will ticket anyone who violates the permitted spaces and the 2 hour parking spaces in the city lot west of the school. All 1 hour parking spaces now require a tan permit.
  • Please be courteous to our business neighbors. Do not use their parking spaces or block their parking lots. If you need to wait for your scholar, park over in the Bank of America parking lot. Do not clog up the spaces behind Main Street businesses.

INTRODUCING the Paul Revere Academy (PRA) 

Heritage is expanding! We are excited to introduce a unique academic experience through the Paul Revere Academy (PRA) – starting in July 2023.  East Valley Institute of Technology (EVIT) and Heritage Academy have partnered to bring a complete high school education to the West Main Street campus of EVIT. Students will earn their high school diploma and industry certifications all on one campus.

Paul Revere is considered one of the Founding Fathers as well as a skilled tradesman. While PRA is part of the Heritage family of schools, it is designed to serve scholars interested in obtaining hands-on training and workforce ready credentials.  At the same time, it extends our mission of building character, developing loyalty to the ideals of our country, and serving in our community.

Scholars at PRA will split their day between taking core classes at Paul Revere Academy and elective/Career Technical Education (CTE) classes at EVIT. All youth interested in a more streamlined approach to obtaining a high school diploma and CTE certificates are welcome to apply. Please visit our website: www.paulrevere.tech for more information.

12th grade is the time to apply for admission to college and to apply for federal student aid by filling out the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA®) form. Opens Oct. 1.  Check out goingmerry.com for a more user-friendly application, plus, there are thousands of scholarship opportunities.  Just complete your profile.

Complete the FAFSA form even if you believe your child won’t qualify for any free federal aid. Many colleges will require FAFSA if you are getting any aid directly from the school. In addition, your family circumstances may change due to divorce, death or medical issues and you can appeal to the school due to the change in circumstance.
