Philosophy & Approach

Day in the Life

General School Mission

"We believe in educating the whole child - spiritually, academically, physically, emotionally - and equipping the child for life and its varied circumstances. Educating the child is equipping the child to process information spiritually (Statement of Faith), academically, physically and emotionally. Learning is not a goal within itself but the child develops the skills needed to learn, so that in any setting in life, he/she would have the skills to achieve.
In an atmosphere of discipline and love, we present academic skills and spiritual truths to the child. We believe the Bible is the supreme and final authority in all matters (Statement of Faith). Individuals modeling Christ and integrating the scriptures give all instruction in a Christ-centered environment. (II Timothy 3:16-17)
Each child is recognized as an individual with individual needs and abilities. Material, whether it is spiritual or academic, is presented with respect to this uniqueness. Individual responsibility to parents, teachers, country and God is taught and encouraged. Each child was created in the image of God (Statement of Faith). Each child is different, and that individuality is fostered. (Psalms 139:14)
We succeed in our task of educating the child if the child can interact positively with his/her peers, teachers and parents. Education is not just for the classroom. Education is meant to equip the child with skills that transfer into all aspects of life (Statement of Faith). This is successful when the principles are not just internalized but are interactive in life's experiences. (II Corinthians 13:11)
We succeed in our task of educating the child, if the child experiences the love of Christ such that this world and our place in it is understandable and meaningful. The successful product of Heritage is not the student who can just answer questions, but one who has the skill and learning experiences to find information, analyze data, solve problems and make proper choices in life. (I Timothy 4:12)
