You Deserve a 30 Day Free Trial



Change can be challenging, especially for a family who is considering homeschooling for the first time or they are looking for a new curriculum that will best serve their family’s needs.

One tool we provide to negate the challenge is a thirty-day risk-free trial of our online curriculum. The trial is the complete program. Nothing is held back. If your student is in third grade or higher they can have a full thirty-days to check out our online program with no strings attached. Are you not satisfied with how things are going? You can walk away. If you choose to enroll with us, all work completed counts towards finishing each class. 

We offer this free trial of our Christian homeschool curriculum for three key reasons.

First, we understand that it is an investment. Enrolling at any accredited private school is not free. We want your family to be certain that this is the right investment. When you have a full thirty days to invest in our curriculum, you can completely evaluate if this investment is right for you. It also allows you to begin the process of homeschooling your child while adjusting your budget for the long-term change.

Second, you can answer a very important question: Is homeschooling for our family? While statistically more and more families are turning to homeschooling, it is still not the right choice for every family. What the free trial we offer does is give you time to figure out if homeschooling is the right choice and if your child will respond positively to a learn at home environment. We fully understand that some don’t.

Finally, because we believe you should be able to test-drive curriculum to find out if it works with your student before they commit to it long term. You might already know that homeschooling is for you, but there are a lot of varieties of homeschool curriculum. While we believe the Ignitia platform provides a state-of-the-art learning environment for your student, we understand that it might not be for everyone.

At Heritage Home School Academy we desire to provide each family interested in Christian homeschooling with the tools they need for success without the frustrations and headache that comes from record keeping. All you need to focus on is educating your child at home and fulfilling your state’s requirements as a homeschool family.

Join us Second Semester



It is not just at the beginning of the school year that you can make a change. At Heritage Home School Academy we want you to have the opportunity to transfer to a Christian home school in the middle of the school year. It does not matter if you are in 1st grade or 12th grade, families should have freedom in their choice of education, and we do our best to make it simple.

First, you need to make sure that your student has finished the semester at his or her current school. This is very important for 9th-grade students and higher because they will have earned some credits for the half-semester that they just finished. When you enroll with us, our academic adviser can take that transcript and in turn very quickly set up students to continue their education, picking right up where they left off at the previous school.

The process for 8th grade and lower will take a bit longer because they will need to complete placement testing. Still, this is important because we will design their curriculum for the rest of the semester to fit their needs and not fit them into a mold that they don’t belong in. Education should not be like shoving a square peg into a round hole.

At Heritage Home School Academy students can do their placement testing online in a matter of a day or two. If you are interested in enrolling with us for the second semester, we can easily get your student set up to test during Christmas break so that they will be ready to go shortly after school resumes in January.

Once your student has finished their current semester, we can request the most up to date records from the school you are leaving, have them finish their placement testing, and then set them up with classes fit perfectly for them.

Our Bible-based, Christian homeschooling program is available for students of all ages starting at PreK through 12th grade, and we would love to serve your family through our talented staff of teachers, academic advisers, and customer service experts.

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.



Providing Great Service

When it’s all said and done, the reason we take being accredited so seriously is that it is our desire to provide excellent customer service. Because of our academic rigor, your students get the Christian education they need at home and will have no problem moving on to the college of their choice. Yes, you can have a quality, home-based Christian education and all the other benefits that come with graduating from any other public or private school.

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!
