COVID-19 & Online Learning
Welcome back to another week of online learning!
Quote of the Week:
Please make sure you logging in online and completing your classwork. If you have any questions please reach out to your teachers. They are here for you and they really want to make this a successful experience for you over the next few weeks as we get closer to the end of the year.
Speaking of the end of year, we will be having an end of the year Awards Assembly and will have more details for you in the coming weeks. It will be something that is sent out virtually.
Also, just a reminder for our 8th Graders: please make sure you sign up for Promise for the Future through CAC. You should have received an email with instructions and there are additional details in this newsletter.
We love you and have a great week!

IT’S TAX TIME
LET THE ARIZONA TAX CREDIT FOR PUBLIC SCHOOLS WORK FOR YOU!
How does it work?
If you qualify for this state tax credit, you may donate online to make a contribution. When you file your Arizona state taxes, you then subtract the amount of your contribution from what you owe or add the amount to your refund.
An individual can contribute and receive a tax credit for any amount up to $200, or a couple filing jointly may contribute up to $400.
- If you owe $800 in Arizona state taxes: Make a $400 contribution to Heritage Academy, and subtract $400 from your Arizona state taxes. Your tax bill will then be $400.
- If you are expecting an $800 refund on your Arizona state taxes: Make a $400 contribution to Heritage Academy, and add $400 to your Arizona state tax refund. Your refund will be $1,200.
- Funds can be applied to directly to your scholar’s course fees, tours, or a specific department such as drama, history, orchestra, etc.
Our tentative 2020-2021 Calendar is Now Available!!
Please note that dates are subject to change per board approval in June 2020.

Great News! As of today, Central Arizona College (CAC) has gone live with the signup link for Promise for the Future pledge form.
Click here www.centralaz.edu/promise to sign-up for Promise Today!
The signup period for 8th graders will be from April 1, 2020 through August 1, 2020, providing ample time for students and families to get online and complete their Promise pledge form.
As you are aware, the presentations for Promise that were previously scheduled at Heritage Academy – Maricopa Campus has been cancelled, due to the current social distancing requirements for COVID-19. CAC is actively working on scheduling several virtual online presentations, as well as developing a short video that walks both students and parents through the online signup process for Promise.
As a reminder:
- Student enrollment into the program does not hold any student accountable for future enrollment at Central Arizona College, it is meant to provide every student affordable access to higher educational opportunities.
- All requirements of the program are to be fulfilled by high school graduation.
- When enrolling into the program please be prepared to use a mailing address as well as personal email account.
- Questions please email: firstname.lastname@example.org<mailto:email@example.com>
As we continue to develop new processes for this year’s Promise for the Future enrollment, Heritage Academy and CAC will share that information with parents and scholars as it comes available. The team here at Heritage Academy – Maricopa Campus and Central Arizona College highly value each of you and we appreciate your assistance during this new process.
Thank you and stay safe out there!
