Welcome to Heritage Academy
Thank you for your interest in our school. Heritage Academy is a K4-8th grade Christian school that has been in operation since 1998, and is a ministry of Oasis World Outreach.
With a strong emphasis on educational excellence and Biblical principles, we strive to provide the best quality Christian education. Your child will receive a strong foundational education, be instilled with a love of learning, and develop Christian character traits that will prepare them for a successful future.
"But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint." Isaiah 40:31
Heritage Academy, in partnership with home and church, seeks to prepare each student scholastically, socially, and spiritually for challenges of the twenty-first century.
The goal of Heritage Academy is to train youth in the highest principles of leadership, discipline, individual responsibility, personal integrity, good citizenship, and academic achievement.
The educational program is founded upon the concept that God is the Creator of all things and the Sovereign Ruler over all of life. This means that all that exists originated in God, continues through His sustaining power, and exists to glorify Him.
It is the purpose of Heritage Academy to provide a quality education in a wholesome, Christian environment with an emphasis on academic excellence. It is our purpose at all times to meet and exceed the academic standards set by the state.
STATEMENT OF PURPOSE
Heritage Academy has proven to be a wonderful place where children receive an education based on Biblical truth. We believe that the purpose of Christian education is to assist parents in training their children to be Christ-like. You will have the opportunity to be an integral part of your child’s education through chaperoning field trips, attending special programs, and other events.
Our Kindergarten and elementary students will receive a strong foundation in basic academic skills. Our elementary curriculum stresses mastery in reading, writing, comprehension, study skills, critical thinking, problem solving, and number skills. In addition to the basic curriculum, we also offer physical education, art, and Spanish.
Middle school is a time of transition. For many students, the middle school years are marked by a time of developing responsibility and social relationships. Students are discovering their own strengths, talents and interests. At Heritage Academy, the process of entering adolescence is carefully nurtured. All middle school students will grow in an understanding of God’s Word which will provide a strong foundation and guidance for the rest of their lives.
Our goal is to prepare students with the skills to become productive and responsible citizens in the twenty-first century. We want students to realize that God’s ultimate purpose for man is to develop each individual to his/her fullest capacity: physically, mentally, emotionally, and spiritually (I Corinthians 10:31, Ecclesiastes 12:13). Students will have opportunities to seek and to know God’s will (Romans 12:12, II Timothy 2:16, Deuteronomy 16:17).
Parents and teachers will work cooperatively in the process of educating a child’s mind and heart (Deuteronomy 6:1-9, Ephesians 6:4). In the achievement of those goals, we will rely on the Bible as the spiritual guide. High educational standards and building a personal relationship with the Lord (Philippians 3:10) will flow naturally in a Christ-centered atmosphere.
WHO WE ARE
Heritage Academy was Bishop Michael Sloan's vision to reach out to the community and minister to children and their families. In 1995, Bishop Sloan opened Celebration Station Childcare as a Christian childcare center serving infants through pre-kindergarten. At that time, Celebration Station was a ministry of Celebration Ministries Church of God.
In 1998, Bishop Sloan and Celebration Ministries opened Heritage Academy and purchased the Heritage Ford Building located to the west. In 2003, the Heritage Academy building was sold, and the elementary and middle school moved back to the church building. Celebration Station Childcare merged with Heritage Academy and adopted the new name of Heritage Academy.
Heritage Academy is now an early learning center, elementary school, and middle school.
Prayer was and continues to be a major factor in the success and growth of the school.
