HCS: Serving Preschool – 12TH Grade

…In the spiritual unity of believers in Jesus Christ:
Romans 8:9, 1 Corinthians 12:12-13, Galatians 3:26-28


In addition to offering education for K-12, HCS provides the following programs that cater to our younger students and to those that come to us from outside the United States. We also offer enrichment programs and summer camps for our students beyond the academic school year.

Heritage Christian School welcomes applications from students all over the world. International students with an F-1 visa can begin their American educational journey with HCS. We provide an intimate, structured environment designed to support non-native English speakers and we provide an inviting atmosphere where our international students can easily integrate into our community and their American life. Our location in sunny Southern California provides easy access to Los Angeles International Airport and is a distinct advantage.

To begin the I-20 process, please review the application procedures and required documents below and then reach out to our International Director, Alicia Peterson, at apeterson@heritagechristianschool.com. Please note that students who enroll at HCS, through our International Department, will retain their status as an “international student” and international student tuition policies will apply for the duration of their tenure.
