Accreditation



Whenever someone calls and asks for information about Heritage Home School Academy, one of the first things we will say is this. “We are a fully accredited Christian homeschool provider.”  We are proud of the fact that both our online and workbook programs are accredited, because of the benefits we can pass on to the families we serve.

Who are our accrediting agencies?

Our primary accrediting agency is through ACTS, which stands for the Association of Christian Teachers and Schools. We received our accreditation from them in February of 2017 and will continue to maintain that status through them moving forward. This accreditation covers our online curriculum for third through twelfth grade. This is a very robust uniform set of standards that not only impacts our online program, but also every other program we offer.Our secondary accrediting agency is through the National Association of Private Schools. Heritage Home School Academy has been accredited by this from January 1st, 2004 until now. This specifically covers our workbook program but is another robust set of standards that impact everything that we offer.

Why does accreditation matter?

Accreditation is incredibly important because it determines if an institution meets or exceeds minimum standards of quality. It also helps other institutions in determining whether to accept transfer credits. The final reason it matters is that it helps determine if the diploma issued by the institution meets rigorous educational standards.In other words, accreditation is the backbone of the rigor that impacts our academics and record keeping. Because of our accreditation, we can ensure that your student should have no problem transferring from us to another school, or going to the college of their choice when the time comes.

Routine, Routine, Routine

One of the greatest challenges that home schooling presents is the lack of schedule or routine. In public school setting the student’s day is guided by a series of class periods and bells or buzzers signaling it’s time to change the class. Whenever you’re home schooling this no longer exists, but a routine is still very important to seeing your students find success. Our recommendation is to start with a schedule and keep at the routine the schedule gives you. Maybe you have breakfast and start the tough classes first. Perhaps you get up and do some work outs before breakfast and the easy classes first. Is science or math after lunch? Either way, find a routine and stick with it! You’ll find greater success!
