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.
A NOTE FROM Mrs. Udall:
Hello Heritage Families,
We can see the finish line! There are so many wonderful things happening at Heritage in these last few weeks of school.
If you’ve never attended a Heritage musical, now is the time! We are presenting Little Women with two full casts. Ticket information HERE. In conjunction with the musical, we also have our annual Art Show. You’ll be impressed by the talent at Heritage Academy Mesa.
This weekend our upperclassmen will be attending Prom at the Mesa Country Club. It’s always fun to see our scholars utilize their social dance moves from Ballroom classes and dress up in their fancy clothes. If there are any questions about dress code, please refer to the scholar handbook for guidelines. Tickets and dress code will be checked at the door. Guest passes are required for any non-Heritage scholar to attend.
Next week, we’ll be meeting with all Seniors to talk about graduation. Graduation will be held on Thursday, May 19, at 7:00 p.m. at the Mesa Convention Center. Please see the attached Graduation handout for events, dress code, times, and dates.
Teachers have set deadlines for all late/missing work. Please have scholars communicate now if they are struggling. We have found that tutoring with their teachers is the best way for scholars to improve.
Thank you for helping create this wonderful community we call Heritage Academy, Mesa.
THE PLAY’S THE THING!
Based on Louisa May Alcott’s life, Little Women follows the adventures of sisters, Jo, Meg, Beth and Amy March. This timeless, captivating story is brought to life in a beautiful musical filled with personal discovery, heartache, hope and everlasting love.
