Dear Parent,

Thank you for your interest in Heritage. As a parent, you have been blessed by God with the unique and precious gift of your child. With that gift comes the awesome responsibility of providing an education that will help your child become all that God has planned for him or her to be.

When one considers the many hours a child spends at school during their most formative years, it is clear why choosing the best school for your child and family is critically important. At Heritage, our desire is to partner with like-minded Christian parents who are committed to our school’s mission and who share our core values in educating our students. Our parent community is marked by exceptional commitment, support, and participation.

We invite you to take the time to get to know us by understanding who we are, what we believe, and our approach to Christ-centered, classical education. We pray that God will provide you with wisdom and discernment as you consider Heritage for your child and your family.

How big is the school?

We currently have 275 students between both our campuses.

What is your teacher to student ratio?

Our average student-to-teacher ratio is 12:1 in lower school and 15:1 in middle and upper school. Class sizes are small so that each student will receive individual attention and have abundant opportunities to participate and lead.

What are the distinctive features of Heritage's approach to education?

Heritage was founded to provide a distinctly Christ-centered education, characterized by academic excellence, and joyful discovery within a classical framework.

How involved are the parents?

Parents are expected to play an active role in their children’s education. This means that time at home should practically reinforce what is learned in school from academics to spiritual and character development. Parents are also encouraged to give of their time volunteering as well as to support the school’s Annual Fundraising opportunities.

What is your discipline policy?

Heritage seeks to provide an environment in which Christian behavior is demonstrated and lived out in all aspects of the school day. Consistency and positive reinforcement are the primary means by which the faculty motivates good behavior. In cases of misconduct, the least serious infractions are handled by the classroom teacher; however, a student’s persistence in demonstrating unacceptable behavior will elevate discipline to an administrative level.

What are the school hours?

  • PreK and Kindergarten is 8:00 am-noon
  • Grades 1-12 is 8-2:30

Is lunch provided?

Students have the opportunity to purchase lunch through our local partnerships with Chick-fil-A, Little Rey, and Jimmy John’s. Additionally, students are welcome to bring lunch to school.

Does Heritage have a school library?

Yes. Heritage has a library on both campuses along with a full-time librarian and assistant. The library has over 7,000 volumes of quality literature and media resources. Our library is a special collection of classic and ‘living’ books we have carefully selected with the hope of cultivating a lifelong love of reading in our students. Both lower and upper school campuses have beautiful library spaces that have been intentionally designed to delight and inspire our students to read great literature.

How can I find out about carpools?

We encourage parents to form carpools with other Heritage families in their area. Families drive to Heritage from all over the extended metro Atlanta area. There is a good chance that there are other Heritage families in your area. We will be glad to assist you in identifying these individuals.

What church sponsors Heritage?

Heritage is not affiliated with any church or denomination.

What do I need to know about school uniforms?

Students must be clean, well-groomed, and conservatively dressed in uniform on campus and at all school functions. Students must also have conservative hairstyles. We have established our policy on uniforms to encourage a tasteful and modest lifestyle.

What is the average amount of time that students will spend on homework?

Generally, homework assignments will be made Monday through Thursday for grades 3-4; and Monday through Friday for grades 5-12. Nightly homework is not assigned for PreK-2nd grade students.

Approximate times to be spent on homework per day for the average student are the following:

  • Grade 3: 30 minutes
  • Grade 4: 40 minutes
  • Grade 5: 50 minutes
  • Grades 6-12: Between 60-100 minutes

This time is the average for the class; actual time may vary according to the pace at which the student works. These time allotments for homework do not include corrections, unfinished work from class, or daily outside reading from the required reading list. We ask that students read, or be read to, for 30 minutes a night.

Why do PreK and Kindergarten students have shorter days?

We believe that early childhood training begins at home. While we work diligently to develop a child’s reading and writing skills, helping children lead themselves, and learning self-control and obedience establishes a foundation upon which future academic skills are built. We believe this is a very unique philosophy among Christian schools.

Admissions FAQ

Is there an age requirement for Enrichment classes?

Students must be 4 by September 1 for Enrichment 1 (PreK) & 5 by September 1 for Enrichment II (Kindergarten).

What can I do to prepare my child for the on-site assessment?
