ABOUT HERITAGE CHRISTIAN SCHOOL
Welcome To Heritage Christian School,
We are excited to partner with families as we provide a well-rounded and challenging educational experience for our students. We provide a Christ-centered education in preparing our students for their future endeavors and our staff and faculty work tirelessly to have a positive impact on the lives of the children within our school body. From our engaging fine arts programs to the competitive excellence of our athletic teams, we continue to strive toward having each child press to reach their true potential in Jesus Christ. Our school has been blessed with a wonderful campus which enables us the long term sustainability of our mission and our programs.
We regard educating and training each child entrusted to us as a privilege and a God-given responsibility. We endeavor to provide each child with the best in character training and college-preparatory academic instruction. Ultimately, we desire to see each student grow as the Lord Jesus Christ grew -- intellectually, physically, spiritually, and socially. Although a Biblically integrated academic program is the focus of our school, community involvement is another important aspect of what we believe to be an integral part of a well-rounded education that is offered here at Heritage Christian School. We are encouraging our student body to become critical thinkers that will become difference makers by impacting change that will not only influence our community but also have a direct impact on our world.
From the moment you set foot on our campus, we pray that you would feel the love of Christ and have the opportunity to experience first-hand the great things that He has done at Heritage Christian School through the lives of our students. Guidance for both the heart and the mind gives Heritage Christian School students an edge, enabling them to excel and achieve with the very best. Initiative and integrity are trademarks of our students. It is our prayer that the Lord will have His best in each child’s life in the coming years.
Please contact the school office for any additional questions or to schedule a campus visit.
Yours in Christ,
Mrs. Janeal Lischke, Principal

Heritage Christian School is a non-denominational private school founded upon the belief that curriculum should be Christ-centered. Heritage Christian School promotes both academic excellence and the spiritual development of students.
The school started with 31 students in grades K-6 and has grown to it's present enrollment of 150+ students in the pre-kindergarten through 12th grades.
The mission of Heritage Christian School is to provide a Christ-centered, quality education in order to prepare our children to serve Christ. We believe that we are called as Christian parents to provide for our children’s education (Proverbs 22:6 “Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it) and, therefore, view our school as an extension of the Christian home.
Our educational approach is to teach children to think biblically in relation to all of life and to develop disciplined lives. We define success as the wise use of the talents and gifts God has given each student to serve Him and to further His kingdom.
