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.

Heritage Academy Recognizes our Hero Scholars:

Every month teachers recommend scholars to have “Pizza with the Principal”.  The scholars must exhibit character traits that uphold our mission statement.

A NOTE FROM Mrs. Udall:

Hello Heritage Families,

The scholars have a had a great time participating in all of the Constitution Week activities.  Huge shoutout to Scholar Council and all the parent volunteers!

I had the honor of sitting with our very own scholar heroes and share a bite of pizza and got to know more about them.  They are a great group and I’m proud to be their Principal!

Don’t forget to come and support our Hero athletes!  The fall season will be over before you know it.  Check out the Events Calendar!

Have a wonderful weekend.

Spring 2024 Spring Performing Arts Tour Canceled

Due to many scholars having scheduling conflicts, and the high number of awesome activities that our scholars are involved in during the Spring, the approved Spring Performing Arts tour that was scheduled for April, has been cancelled. We will instead put all of our efforts into the many other activities happening this spring such as the Car Show, All-State Choral Festival in Tucson, the NAU Jazz/Madrigal Festival, All-State Jazz Festival, All-State Show Festival and the Arts Retreat. Many of our choir scholars also participate in the Spring musical, so it’s my hope that this will lighten the load for so many who participate in these events.

We have a very fierce  & mighty Junior High team with 9 brave and bold swimmers competing this year. We entered 10 events on Saturday, and our Heroes scored top 12 honors in those events!! Shout out to Logan Peart for swimming under 30 seconds in the 50 free!! Whooo Hoooo!!

On the High School side of the pool, magic was being made by both the medley relays and the free relays. Outstanding jobs in relay exchanges, underwater work and finishes. Of the 10 events, we had 55 top 12 finishes! Shout out to Jayne Whitener & Abby Whitener who scored 8 of those top finishes. Whooo Hooo!!

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.
