Our Mission

: Heritage

Christian School supports families by providing a Christ-centered, comprehensive, academically excellent education for children.

Daily

instruction is given so students may become responsible citizens, be led to receive the Lord Jesus Christ as Savior,

and

live according to Biblical truths.

Slide5

"I am much afraid that the universities will prove

to

be the great gates of hell, unless they diligently

labour

in explaining the Holy Scriptures,

and

engraving them in the hearts of youth.

I

advise no one to place his child where the Scriptures do not reign paramount. Every institution in which men are not unceasingly occupied with

the

Word of God must become corrupt

.”

-- Martin Luther

Slide6

Vision for a Heritage HS

Focused on proclaiming the preeminence of Christ; focused on teaching and living out the love of God and the Word of God

Slide7

“Our goal in parenting is not ultimately for our kids to get a great education or to be great athletes or to find a great husband or get a great career.

Our goal for them is to love a great God.”

-- David Platt, Christian author

Slide8

Vision for a Heritage HS
