One of the biggest takeaways I got from Heritage was the love of learning. One of my favorite things about Heritage is that you are able to incorporate Christ into learning and how each subject relates to another one. That instilled in me a passion for learning and helped me do well in high school and college, and desire to take courses outside of my own specific major.
Your teachers become your mentors in middle school. It’s a cool thing. I remember more life stories being shared, getting advice about the future, what the real world looks like, and what curve balls are going to be thrown at us. Just the freedom to open up that conversation is very important.
I loved Fine Arts Day. It was my favorite. That is what really made me want to do Musical Theatre. Getting to perform, becoming used to presenting myself in front of an audience, and working together as a team, that was my favorite.
