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.

This project was headed up by Makayla Mecham, in the 8th grade. The class decided to take advantage of a project found on Just Serve and donate backpacks and school supplies to Gathering Humanity, an organization that helps current refugee families. Our project helped their children get ready for school!
School supplies were gathered through donations of our 8th grade class! The scholars enjoyed reminding each other, donating what they could, and learning about where these supplies were headed. Gathering Humanity was grateful for the delivery.
