ABOUT HERITAGE CHRISTIAN SCHOOL
“Hear, O Israel: The LORD our God, the LORD is one! You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your strength. And these words which I command you today shall be in your heart. You shall teach them diligently to your children, and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way, when you lie down, and when you rise up. You shall bind them as a sign on your hand, and they shall be as frontlets between your eyes. You shall write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.”
- Deuteronomy 6.4-9
Heritage Christian School is a ministry to Christian families that seeks to help parents fulfill their calling to teach their children to love the LORD as their God with all their being. Scripture declares that God's Word should first be in the hearts of the parents, so parents of prospective HCS students are expected to profess a personal faith in Jesus Christ and to belong to a local church, and the same requirement is made of HCS teachers, since they are aiding parents in teaching their children God's Word and God's truth every day and in every area of life. We want the truth about God and God's world to be as apparent to our children as would be a sign bound on our hands or forehead, or words written on our doors and gates.
In 1990, a group of concerned parents, whose educational views and values were being challenged daily, assembled, believing God had brought them together. These parents wanted their children to learn, adhere to, and carry on their belief in the authority of the Bible and the wisdom of its tenets.
In the fall of 1991, Apostolic Christian School opened its doors to its first students. Office space was rented and converted into a classroom for twenty-two students who were enrolled in grades K through 8. In 1992, forty-two students sharpened their pencils on opening day, and by 1993, sixty-three students were enrolled at Apostolic Christian School.
By 1995, it was evident due to the lack of space that a new school building was needed. The school families banded together to purchase land and build a new building. By the fall of 1996, the new school building was completed and the school name was changed to "Heritage Christian School".
