Because Heritage prioritizes the importance of diving deeply into God’s Word every day, all families are provided with a schedule that includes Bible passages and corresponding discussion questions. Families are strongly encouraged to sit together, reading and discussing Scripture as a unit each night. Enrichment and Lower School begins with a class discussion of the devotional and prayer time.
In Middle and High School, students have a regular Bible class within the curriculum that foster a growth in Scriptural knowledge and encourage students to wrestle with difficult passages and truths in a safe environment.
Every Friday, Heritage gathers as a community for chapel. Lower School chapel consists of Class 1 to Class 6 with each class leading chapel throughout the year. Upper School students attend their own chapel service on Fridays and all-school chapel each month. Chapel consists of Scripture reading, hymns and prayers, as well as a message given by a faculty, student, or staff member. The hope of chapel is to give our school a time of recentering worship as well as to prepare students to be active members of their church one day. Parents, family members, and guests are always welcome at chapel to worship with the student body!
The classical model highlights the importance of play in young children’s education, encouraging imagination and physical activity while fostering friendship. To this end, Enrichment and Lower School students are given a half-hour break every day midmorning to go outside and play. Some students will engage in make-believe and imaginary games in the woods while others will run their hearts out on the field in a rousing game of soccer.
Middle School students also have a midmorning break each day to spend time in fellowship with classmates and teachers.
