HERITAGE ACADEMY exists to partner with parents in raising up excited learners who grow as Christ-lovers and to foster a community where students are known.
"A Christian education at an ACSI member school will help your child grow spiritually, academically, and culturally. In fact, the recent Cardus Education Survey and other education studies show that ACSI schools develop the whole child better than any other type of school."
“The Core Knowledge Sequence is predicated on the realization that what children are able to learn at any given moment depends on what they already know – and equally important, that what they know is a function of previous experience and teaching. Explicit identification of what children should learn at each grade level ensures a coherent approach to building knowledge across all grade levels. Core Knowledge provides a clear outline of content to be learned grade by grade so that knowledge, language, and skills build cumulatively from year to year. This sequential building of knowledge helps ensure that children enter each new grade ready to learn. Core Knowledge sets high expectations for all children that are achievable thanks to cumulative, sequential way that knowledge and skills build. Teacher in Core Knowledge schools have assurance that children will emerge well prepared with a shared body of knowledge and skills.”
