Heritage Academy intends to be a leader in the area of urban education. Committed, called and credentialed staff deliver a rigorous education academically, and shape a child’s spirit and character. To accomplish these ideals, we partner with parents through prayer, communication and commitment to the highest good of the child and the glory of God.
Statement of Philosophy
Heritage Academy believes that the Holy Scripture is the Word of God and the only rule for faith and practice.
Heritage Academy believes that all people are created in the image of God. As such, they are to be treated with dignity and respect. We are to reflect the character of God in our lives and to reveal it in the way we carry out His work.
Heritage Academy believes that to carry out the mission of Christian education, the personnel and programs must reflect Biblical principles of holy living, truth and faith expressing itself through love.
Heritage Academy believes that the pursuit of excellence is glorifying to God. Students will be encouraged to achieve and to model godliness before school, family and community.
Heritage Academy believes that self-confidence of children comes from knowing the love of God and understanding His purpose for their lives. That purpose is to glorify God and to enjoy Him forever.
Heritage Academy believes in the Biblical design for family. We respect the home as the first and most significant classroom of the child. We expect parents and/or guardians to be involved in the life of the school and to be in partnership with the school for the success of their child.
Statement of Faith
We believe there is one God, eternally existent in three persons, God the Father, God the Son (the Lord Jesus Christ), and God the Holy Spirit.
We believe the Bible, the Scriptures of the Old and New Testaments, to be the infallible, inerrant Word of God and to be the only rule for faith and practice.
We believe that God created the world and all things and people in it. Each person is created in the image of God, giving him inherent worth and equality with all other persons.
We believe that our ability to carry out our purpose to love and honor God, serve our fellow man has been corrupted by the effects of sin that entered God’s perfect creation through our first parents, Adam and Eve.
We believe that because God loved the world, He sent Jesus Christ into the world to save us from sin and its consequences. By the death of Jesus Christ on the cross, the debt of sin has been paid.
We believe that salvation is a free gift to all people who receive this gift by faith in the work and person of Jesus Christ.
We believe the church to be made up of all persons who place their trust in Christ and obey Him, by living according to His word.
