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.

A NOTE FROM Mrs. Udall:

Hello Hero families!  I’ve enjoyed talking to scholars about their Spring Break activities!

There is a lot going on the next few weeks, so be sure to check out the calendar for updates in sporting events, as well as plays, art shows, and testing schedules.

We are gearing up for state tests as well as ACT and Pre-ACT in April.  Just a reminder that MyHotLunchBox will not be delivering on campus April 3 – 6 and PTO will not be providing lunch either.

I’ve been hearing the rehearsals for the play, the Little Mermaid Jr, and they sound great!  Don’t miss out!  You can buy your tickets at TICKETLEAP FOR LITTLE MERMAID JR. or go to The Little Mermaid Jr. BUY TICKETS HERE

Parents, we are aware we have a tight parking lot and a lot of scholars who need to be picked up.
But we also want to be good neighbors to the businesses that surround us. There are many options for scholar pick-up.
  • Have them meet you at the seminary building.
  • Park in the 1 or 3 hours spaces behind the school.
  • Que up in the back parking lot to wait for your scholar (the right lane is for carpooling, the left lane is for quick drop off, and the far left lane is to pull through.
Please do NOT park in front of businesses to wait for your scholar.
Please do NOT park in the street in front of the school. Only park in the few designated 10 minutes parking spots.
Thank you for helping us live our mission statement to teach our scholars how to build strong communities!


Here is a great scholarship opportunity for those that are planning to attend ASU, NAU, or U of A this fall.  The Arizona Promise Program!!!  This is a great opportunity for students from low-income families, which guarantees scholarship for eligible students to cover Arizona public university tuition and fees.
The deadline to submit your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) to qualify for the Arizona Promise Program is April 1st.  The Arizona Promise Program:
     >  Provides financial assistance for qualified students whose federal Pell grants don’t cover the cost of college tuition and fees
     >  The award amount is up to the actual cost of in-state tuition, mandatory fees and program fees after other financial aid
     >  Qualifying students are guaranteed their tuition, mandatory fees and program fees will be fully covered.
To qualify, a scholar must:
     >  Be an Arizona resident
     >  Graduate from an Arizona high school with a minimum 2.5 GPA
     >  Qualify for ANY federal Pell Grant; timely complete the FAFSA application each year for renewal
     >  Be admitted and enroll as a first-time, full-time, on-campus degree seeking student at ASU, NAU, or U of A, in the fall semester immediately following high school graduation.  (Some gaps in enrollment, such as for military service, may be allowed.  Please check with the universities.)  LEARN MORE HERE

NEW SCHOLARS –  If you have friends that do not currently attend Heritage but would like to join us next year…they will need to complete the enrollment application.  APPLY HERE

SIBLINGS OF CURRENT SCHOLARS: If you have a sibling who wants to attend Heritage next year, they must complete the application. While siblings do receive priority, a completed application MUST be submitted. 

Why PTO Dues?

If you haven’t yet paid, please consider doing so now:


School administration diligently strives to keep costs down and does not randomly pass expenses on to families.  Your suggested dues of $20 per family helps fund new technology for our scholars, subsidize low cost lunch options, and provide treats and prizes for various school functions such as Constitution week.

Our PTO has no major fundraisers that we will ask parents or teachers to support. We count on your suggested annual dues. 

We want you to know that all parents are invited to attend our board meetings. Check out more about PTO HERE


Seniors – don’t forget to schedule your senior 1-on-1 meeting with Mr. Brown. 

You can scan the QR code outside Mr. Brown’s office or click here.


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.
