Our Mission Statement

Heritage Academy is dedicated to youth, their growth and development. The purpose of education is to build strong character. Strong character is reflected in strong families, strong communities and a strong nation.

While teaching the academic disciplines, Heritage Academy is dedicated to instilling into the minds and hearts of today’s youth a knowledge of and respect for the ideals and values of the great men and women of history, including those who founded the American nation.

As today’s rising generation gains an appreciation of these people of accomplishment, they will be ready to provide the selfless service to their fellow citizens and to their country which will be required in the coming years to assist in preserving America’s greatness. Heritage Academy exists to this end.




THURSDAY, February 29th


On Dollars for Duds days, scholars are allowed to wear non-uniform clothing (INCLUDING JEANS) that meet Heritage Standards.  $1.00 for shirt and $1.00 for pants/shorts. Wristbands purchased for participation must be worn on your scholar’s wrist throughout the day.  Dollars for Duds is optional, and scholars do not have to participate. Money raised goes to support Scholar Council and the school activities and dances they support.

Heritage Standard means: no sleeveless or midriff shirts; shorts must be 4″ from the middle of the knee and skirts must come to the middle of the knee; no pants or shorts that are ripped, torn or frayed; no leggings; no inappropriate slogans or symbols on the clothing; and NO PAJAMAS.

If a scholar is wearing inappropriate clothing, they will be dress coded and will need to change into uniforms we have on hand in the office.

The PTO will be offering $1 doughnuts until they are gone that Thursday morning!

Scholar handbook:

Absences Any scholar who misses ten percent (10%) or more of classes (usually five or more per semester) in a given subject may not receive credit for that subject. This applies to all absences unless on school business. An excused absence is an absence due to illness, doctor appointment, bereavement, family emergencies and 9 suspensions not to exceed 10% of the instructional days scheduled for the school year. Heritage Academy must be notified of the absence prior to the absence or when the absence occurs by the parent or legal guardian who has custody of the student. If an absence occurs relating to any other term or condition that is not specifically designated above, the absence shall be counted as unexcused.




Our Heritage Maricopa Tennis Team celebrated seniors Pia Morales, Brooklyn Stoker, and MacKenzie Weyrauch. It was a great night!




Scholars in the Leadership Class with Master Feiles. Scholars had some team challenges and a little fun game time to apply their knowledge of the essential attributes of memorization, focus, technique, and attitude. Lectures are so boring, anyway…

Our amazing PTO has shown us some love last week. Teachers and staff had their pick of sweet or salty… like their personalities maybe?!


Scholars in Mrs. Hilsinger’s Conceptual Science Class built ramps and determine the speed and acceleration of the Hot Wheels cars.

Mrs. Sims’s Citizenship Class gave a huge thank you to Mrs. Joanne and Ms. Nadine at the front desk.


This past weekend Master Feiles hosted a regional martial arts tournament at ASU.  Our own, very talented, Cydney Williford sang our national anthem.  Over 400 competitors from AZ, NV and CO joined the event. Congratulations to our scholars, Caleb Adams, Caleb Feiles, Ethan Duncan. and Juli Dillman who competed in the event.
