Our admissions policy opens HCS to families who are like-minded spiritually, who are supportive of our Charter of Core Values and standards of education, and whose children meet our enrollment standards. Our purpose is to serve families who desire not simply a private education, but a distinctively Christian education for their children.
- Minimum of a 2.5 grade point average (GPA) in all core classes (Language Arts, History, Math and Science)
- Proficient in ILearn Language Arts and Math for 3rd through 8th graders, or if unavailable, other acceptable test results, including standardized testing or Heritage Christian internally developed assessments. Consideration will be given for standardized achievement scores when reviewing Academic Achievement for 9-12th graders.
Admission to HCS requires a caring Christian adult (parent or guardian) who is committed to his or her student’s success and willing to partner with us. As such, at least one parent or guardian in the student’s life must profess faith in Jesus Christ, hold to beliefs consistent with our Statement of Faith, and agree to support and partner with HCS.
Students applying for grades 7-12 must also share their story of faith in Jesus Christ, and their desire to attend HCS.
HCS makes no distinction in its admissions policy on the basis of any race, color, and national or ethnorigin.
HCS is not intended to be a facility of rehabilitation where parents enroll their children to address emerging patterns of undesirable behavior. As such, students must exhibit a history of acceptable citizenship in previous school experience.
Available seats are offered first to students whose parents are members of our faculty and staff, and then to new students from existing families, and then opened to families who are new to HCS. Seats are not reserved for any student until the student is accepted through the application and interview/assessment process and the non-refundable enrollment fee is paid.
Students who need additional educational support will be evaluated to determine if we believe the services we offer provide the support needed for that student to succeed.
Our cutoff dates are as follows:
- Preschool: 3 by June 1
- Prep K: 4 by June 1
- Kindergarten: 5 by June 1
