We know there are challenges that cannot currently be changed, however we do have a few reminders that will keep our scholars safe, and will provide a more pleasant drop off experience for all of our Heritage Family.
- ENTERING DRIVE-LINE– Once you turn left onto Heroes Way from Adams you are considered to be in the driveline. Please DO NOT STOP, TURN-AROUND, U-TURN, PARK IN THE HANDICAP PARKING (WITHOUT PERMIT), OR YELL UNKIND WORDS in the driveline. We are all busy, and our time is valuable. Please allow more time in the morning to ensure you can be on time! For helps on this, please see the “BE ON TIME” article below.
- CROSSWALKS – There are (2) crosswalks on campus (1 at the main gate, and 1 coming from the parking lot). Please, look for the crossing guard as you are entering and exiting driveline. DO NOT STOP, TURN-AROUND, U-TURN, PARK IN THE HANDICAP PARKING (WITHOUT PERMIT) OR YELL UNKIND WORDS in the driveline.
- PARKING – There is a parking lot available to scholars and visitors coming into the office. If you enter the parking lot during drop-off/pick-up and leave during drop-off/pick-up, there is NO LEFT TURN out of the parking lot, and you will need to drive through the full driveline to exit campus.
- DROP-OFF ZONE:
- PULL ALL THE WAY FORWARD to allow more cars to drop off at once.
- BE PREPARED TO GRAB ITEMS QUICKLY as scholars exit the vehicle.
- PARENTS, PLEASE STAY IN YOUR VEHICLE! When you stop and get out, this only slows the flow of traffic.
- ENCOURAGE YOUR SCHOLARS TO BE LOOKING FOR YOU AT PICK-UP.
We all have the same goals in mind and SAFETY is a number one concern! We are also instilling character in our scholars here at Heritage and our examples in what we say and what we do speak loudly! We want to show respect, gratitude, kindness, patience! We really appreciate the extra effort!
We have noticed that as we are settling into our routine at our new campus, several scholars are arriving late. We would like to remind families that Heritage Academy has a strict Tardy Policy.
TARDY POLICY: If you scholar is tardy more than 3 times to school, they will be pulled into a “sweep,” (similar to a detention) for the remainder of 1st period, and every tardy after. They simply are not allowed to interrupt their first hour class coming in late. Parents will be called on the scholar’s 5th tardy, and a meeting will be scheduled at their 7th tardy.
Why does being on time matter? At Heritage, we want all of our scholars to learn traits that will help them be successful in their lives.
Here are just a few benefits of punctuality:
- LESS – STRESSED
Here are some tips to arrive on time:
- PACK IT UP THE NIGHT BEFORE – Uniforms, gym clothes, shoes, jackets, sports equipment, water bottles, homework, lunch etc.
- TIME TRICKS – set alarms, change the clocks in your house to be early, tell yourself school starts at 7:45 (not 8:00).
- ANTICIPATE DELAYS- Add 25% of your travel time to your commute for traffic, gas, emergencies, etc.

Many college and University Testing Centers offer CLEP exams which offer college credit at a fraction of the cost than traditional classes for subjects that students may already be experts in! Total out of pocket costs for the CLEP exam is $134. (confirm with the schools testing center)
The most popular CLEP exams administered for many of the schools include Spanish Language, French Language, and Calculus. Undergraduate students can receive college credit to fulfill their prerequisites towards their degree. Students can take any CLEP exam prior to completing an earned credit through formal course work. Meaning, students must complete their CLEP exam before they complete a course in the same subject.
Please review the college or university’s Catalog CLEP policies for a list of subjects, and the scores required to earn college credit and which classes they could earn credit for. Also, meet with your counselor to confirm what tests to take to fulfil your prerequisites.
