“If you’re searching for a good Christian -based school I highly recommend Heritage Christian School. Our daughters attended the school for three years and would still be there today if it were not for the fact that we had to move out of the area. This school is the best thing that’s ever happened to her. Not only did it build her spiritual life and her education but it also brought her a sense of love and self-esteem that I seriously doubt you’ll find anywhere else. Everyone from her teacher(s) to the Principal brought her such love and joy that it felt like family. All of this plus the fun she had with her friends and activities that the school provides is the reason it’s the best school ever. To everyone in Heritage Christian School I can’t thank you enough for all that you did for Abby.”

The Bell Family

“We love HCS, the class sizes are great, my kids get one on one attention from their teachers and there is open communication between parents and teachers. The best thing about HCS is that my children learn about God everyday and are around godly examples. We could not have asked for a better environment for our children.”

Melanie Van Rensburg

“You can just feel such a welcoming spirit when you walk into the school office.”

Prospective Parent

“My daughter loves Heritage Christian School, we have seen so much growth in her spiritual life that it makes it all so worth it.”

Jr. High Parent

“There are several Christian Schools that are doing a lot of good things, but I think the one thing that sets HCS apart is the love and nurture that is given day in and day out to each child. ”
