Purpose > Pity

 “When I looked at my pinky finger, it was bent sideways and backwards,” described Jaden Hill. It was the first day of tryouts for the elite club basketball team AZ Select, and it had been Jaden’s dream to join them. But that big dream was derailed when he crashed into a padded wall after finishing a contested layup where his pinky got caught in the padding. His little finger shattered, and so did his big dream.

In the aftermath, Jaden was devastated. “It was a really tough time. I wanted nothing more than to be out there playing the sport I love most on the team I always wanted to play for.”

It was natural to ask, “Why me?” The answer to that question initially led Jaden down a path of self-pity (“Why did this happen to ME?”). But it eventually took him down a path of purpose (“WHY did this happen to me?”). That path from pity to purpose led to answers and led him to consider life after basketball and beyond high school. During the period of injury downtime and reflection, Jaden realized he needed to think about his long-term future.

My dad always says, “You are not molding the clay, you are the clay being molded.” Jaden added, “I feel I have a bigger purpose, and I started to see this difficult time as a way of revealing that purpose and God’s plan for me in my life.”

Fast forward to late June and Jaden is at the ASU Downtown campus listening to a presentation on preparing for medical school. His future now includes a dream much bigger than club basketball – it is to become an orthopedic surgeon specializing in sports injury and recovering athletes just like him.

As he had been helped, he had become inspired to help.

In the end, I suppose there is great irony in the fact that a crooked finger ended up pointing him to his possible life’s purpose; a finger bent backwards ended up propelling him forward. The finger is straight now, and so is the path Jaden is on.

Has your high school scholar created a 4 year plan yet?

Heritage Academy offers advising to every scholar on campus. Mrs. Bocchinfuso will coach them along their college prep path, get them enrolled in college while in high school, and set up for future success!

Parents and scholars….. Do you have questions regarding college or high school planning?
Below is a list of topics that you may want to consider.

  • High school course selection
  • Early College Program – Dual enrollment, AP & CLEP
  • Earning an Associates Degree at Heritage Academy
  • ACT/SAT/PSAT (Which test and when?)
  • Financial Aid (Scholarships, Grants, Loans & FAFSA)

To schedule your appointment with Michele Bocchinfuso, please visit:



Be prepared and try to remember all of the items you will need for class, sports, and extracurriculars each day. 

We understand things happen and sometimes items get forgotten.  We have had an increase in these forgotten items, so please help remind your scholars to prepare their needed items the night before.  SCHOLAR WILL BE CALLED DOWN BETWEEN CLASSES TO PICK UP THE ITEM. WE WILL NOT DELIVER THE ITEMS TO CLASS.  Please remind your scholar to pick up the item in the front office.


Course fees for all FIRST SEMESTER classes have been assessed and are now PAST DUE . Scholars with balances will now start to be dropped from all fee-bearing classes and will not be enrolled back in for the remainder of the semester.

As a reminder, our course fees are for the class, not the sport. Even if your scholar is not playing on a competitive team, you are still responsible for paying the course fee as is listed on the course request form completed at registration.
