HERITAGE ACADEMY PROUDLY ANNOUNCES
ITS DUAL ACCREDITATION STATUS
Posted October 8, 2013
On 10/8/2013, Heritage Academy, founded in 1998, and located in Zephyrhills, FL, was granted state accreditation from the Florida League of Christian Schools (FLOCS).
"This is a monumental achievement not only for Heritage Academy to be state and nationally accredited, but also for Christian education as well," stated FLOCS Executive Director, Michael Burroughs. " We are honored to recognize such a great school."
Heritage Academy conducted a rigorous process of self-examination of the entire school and prepared a self-evaluation report for FLOCS. All program materials from all courses offered, as well as material validating governance, facilities, student services, safety, and more were sent for review to specialists chosen by FLOCS. A team of national trained evaluators then traveled to the school and conducted an onsite review that included financial audits, student services and review of all procedures. Based on this entire process and the teams' report to the Accrediting Commission, Heritage Academy was granted national accreditation.
FLOCS accreditation opens the door for students with tuition assistance opportunities from the military, employers, and other sources to assist your Christian school in meeting FHSAA requirements, as well as meeting requirements for participation in academic recognition societies, like the National Honor Society. Accreditation also increases opportunities for students to transfer credits, and enhances employment prospects.
The Florida League of Christian Schools (FLOCS) has served Florida since 1984 as the state's primary choice for Christian preschool and K-12 education, promoting Biblical, academic, and professional excellence in its member schools. As a partner agency with the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS), FLOCS is a state and nationally recognized accrediting agency as well as a nonprofit voluntary membership organization promoting quality assessment programs which provides ongoing professional development and centers on best practices, teacher certification for qualifying educators, and integration of Christian distinctives through all practices and precepts.

Dr. Rebecca Fulton, Educational Director, lead us in this beautiful and touching prayer. We are blessed to have such wonderful staff and students at Heritage Academy. We give God all the honor and glory.
Dear God, we ask you to bless our Pastor and founder of Heritage Academy. We ask that you touch him and each member of his family. Give him health and wisdom as he leads our school in the Zephyrhills community.
We ask that you touch each and every student tht attends our school. Answer each and every prayer that these children bring before you today. Each household represented is important to you, and we thank you for allowing us to be a part of their lives.
We thank you for each teacher represented here today. The Scripture says that more is required of the teacher than the preacher, so give our teachers strength to mold the lives of the students entrusted to them. It is a great responsibility You've given them, so bless them extra specially on this day around the flag pole.
Finally; we ask you to bless our President, give him wisdom in this day and age to lead our great country. Touch our government in making decisions that affect each individual in our country, as well as those that we align ourselves with.
We ask you to bless the country of Israel; we pray for the peace and safety of Israel and for the peace of Jerusalem.
Protect our servicemen and women that are serving in our military around the world. They are putting themselves in harm's way to give us the freedom we enjoy here at home, so please keep them safe and bring them all home safe.
We thank you in advance for hearing our requests and answering our prayers.
In Your precious Name we pray. And everyone says - AMEN!!!
