A Note from Principal Coleman:
November 9, 2023
Dear Heritage Academy Heroes & Families,
New Student OPEN ENROLLMENT for the 2024-2025 school year has begun and runs through November 1 – 15. We anticipate a continuation of increased enrollment, with many new families eager for their scholars to benefit from the quality academic environment at Heritage Academy.
EXISTING SCHOLARS – No action is required at this time. Once the re-enrollment portal is available, a link will be sent out to all current scholars to complete the re-enrollment form to reserve their spot for next year.
NEW SCHOLARS – If you have friends or family members that do not currently attend Heritage but would like to join us next year…they will need to complete the full enrollment application. The 2024-2025 school year option is now open. CLICK HERE TO ENROLL. Open Enrollment will run through November 15th and the lottery will run in December. Heritage siblings do receive a priority. Any applications received after the Nov. 15th deadline will be placed on the waitlist in the order they were received.
Current Students – No action is required at this time. Once the re-enrollment portal is available, a link will be sent out to all current scholars to complete the re-enrollment form to reserve their spot for next school year.

- The cost is $1.00 for a shirt and $1.00 for pants/shorts.
- Wristbands purchased before school for participation and must be worn on the scholar’s wrist throughout the day.
- “Dollars for Duds” is optional and scholars do not have to participate. If scholars choose not to participate, then they simply wear the Heritage uniform.
- Money raised goes to support the Scholar Council and the school activities they will support throughout the year.
