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.

Welcome-Back-to-School-

Welcome to our 2022-2023 school year!  We are excited to see our scholars back on campus!  We have a lot to look forward to this year and look forward to sharing it with you.

The beginning of the year is a good time to review Heritage standards with your scholars. This will help avoid any confusion with expectations while at school.  For families new to Heritage, you can find most information to review in your packet from orientation.  However, our full handbook can be found on our website hamaricopa.com.

Also, our driveline is being monitored closely this year.  Please review our driveline maps we have sent out.  As a reminder, no one can park on the street outside of our campus before the driveline.  Parents must park in our “cell phone lot” until our gates are open at 3:15.  Our city and our neighbors are excited for your cooperation.

Thank you for having your family at Heritage.  We love our scholars and look forward to working with them all year.  We will see you soon for a full week of school!

Sincerely,

Kimberly Ellsworth
Principal, Maricopa Campus

Happenings-Around-Campus

Mrs. Steelman’s Dual Enrollment College Math scholars got right back into the swing of things with a group task. The goal was to circle the numbers 1-100 in consecutive order in 2 minutes. After attempting it once, they looked for patterns and devised a strategy for a second attempt.

Scholars were really excited to be back to school the first week, seeing old friends and making new ones! We love the buzz around campus, as well as having our PTO moms here for lunch!  We have the BEST PTO EVER and are grateful for their continued help each week, especially the extra service they give for driveline traffic!  THANK YOU!!

No-Outside-Food

We have a large number of forgotten lunches that are being dropped off at campus.  Please limit this as much as possible and remind your scholars before they leave the house, to grab their lunch.  NO OUTSIDE FOOD (fast food or delivery) is allowed.  The school does not provide a lunch if your scholar forgets.

DID YOU ORDER LUNCH? 

HERE ARE A FEW REMINDERS:  

  1. Change your scholars grade level under your profile.
  2. Communicate with your scholar if you ordered lunch for them so they know to pick it up.
  3. If a lunch is ordered and not picked up during lunch time, it will be donated.
  4. If your scholar is absent, cancel the order or contact the front office if you want it saved by 10:00 am, otherwise it will be donated.
  5. If you want a friend to pick up your lunch, it must be communicated to the front office by 10:00 am so the records can be updated.
