Financial Aid Update

Families requesting financial aid for 2019-2020 should have already submitted an application online through FACTS and most have received their award letter. If you desire financial aid for this fall and have not completed the process, here are steps you can take depending on your status.
  • What if I no longer need or want aid? If you are withdrawing, contact Admissions right away. Otherwise, no further action needs to be taken.
  • What if I have not yet applied with FACTS? You should submit your application immediately.
  • What if I started my FACTS application, but have not submitted it?You should complete and submit it immediately.
  • What if I submitted my FACTS application but have not heard about aid? Check with FACTS to make sure they have all required documents. It takes them 1-2 weeks to process your completed application after all required documents are received. If they have completed their review, you should hear from HCS about one week later.
  • What if no aid is listed on my Veracross enrollment contract? You likely have not completed the aid process. Please contact our billing office at billing@heritagechristian.net.

Heritage Christian School Announces the Naming of Conner Insurance Gymnasium

April 29, 2019, Indianapolis, Indiana - At a Saturday April 27th event highlighting Heritage athletic facilities’ plans, Heritage CEO Jeff Freeman announced a multi-year sponsorship agreement that will change the name of the current Heritage High School gymnasium to Conner Insurance Gymnasium.

“We couldn’t have found a better partner to invest in Heritage in this way. They share our Christian values and have engaged with us as a corporate partner and family for decades,” explained Freeman.

Along with naming rights, several Conner Insurance floor logos and new scoreboard and lobby entrance signage will be added to the gymnasium this summer.

Freeman further explained that Heritage had recently been looking into the possibility of some form of this type of corporate sponsorship, but with the highest level of criteria for any potential partner.

“In working with our Board, there was a long list of things to check off before we would ever consider a sponsorship relationship of this nature,” said Freeman. “The sponsor needed to love Heritage. They needed to want to benefit Heritage as their primary purpose. They needed a history of outstanding corporate citizenship and be humble and service-oriented. We would only work with someone who would be consistent with our mission.”

While the Board wondered if anyone could be found to meet all criteria, Freeman already had someone in mind.

“I approached the Board with a proposal about the Conner Insurance Gymnasium, and they were excited.”  Freeman further communicated that the school is extremely pleased with this significant new multi-year partnership.

Ben Conner, Conner Insurance CEO, and Todd Hufford, Conner Insurance COO were at the event and were excited as well about the opportunity to grow their partnership with Heritage.

“Heritage is a very special place. It is a place that has complemented the values delivered at home by my parents. It is a place where I went to school, K through 12,” said Conner. “It is a place where I made life-long friends and became part of an incredible community. It is a place where I came back to coach, and also grew as an insurance professional.  I’m thrilled that our organization can grow our partnership with Heritage to continue a legacy of best-in-class Christian education.” 

“Heritage Christian is an important part of the community and it is our responsibility as individuals and corporate friends to ensure that Heritage continues to thrive,” stated Conner.

Safety & Security


Security Information & Enhancements for the 2018-19 School Year

Posted on August 8, 2018

As we kickoff the 2018-19 school year, we want to remind you of our safety and security policies, inform you of some changes and enhancements, and ask for help in maintaining a culture of safety on our campus.

Armed Security Changes

  • Many of you have noticed that security was enhanced last year with the introduction of an armed officer on campus. HCS will continue that program this year with our School Resource Officer on-campus during the school day (see below for more information).
  • In addition, HCS is expanding our armed presence on campus for the 2018-19 school year with board approval of an Armed Security Policy for our security officers to carry a weapon while on duty. We are implementing this policy in order to be positioned to both deter and respond to any situation that would put HCS families or employees in danger.
  • HCS Security has over 35 years of combined Military and Law Enforcement experience. [Meet Our Security Team]
  • Our security officers have gone through significant firearms and de-escalation training as well as an evaluation program in order to meet the requirements to carry a weapon on campus.
  • Any parent desiring more information about the specific training for the Armed Security should reach out directly to Ed Ingle (ed.ingle@heritagechristian.net) for additional follow up.

School Resource Officer

  • Officer Tim York is our HCS School Resource officer for 2018-19.
  • Officer York is a K-9 officer and his partner will be on campus with him a majority of the school days at HCS.
  • Officer York is a licensed officer with SWAT, EMT and SRO certifications along with his K-9 certification.
  • Officer York has HCS approval to interact with students and when needed, enforce the law on the HCS campus as an integral part of our security team.

Campus Hours

  • HCS campus hours for students are school days from 7:00 a.m. until 5:30 p.m.
  • Between 3:30 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. students on campus must be at a supervised activity or in one of the following locations
    • Elementary School students: ABCare
    • Intermediate and Middle School students: HUB
    • High School students: Learning Center (High School Commons/Library)
  • All students must be picked up by 5:30 p.m. unless they are participating in or attending a scheduled campus activity.

Additional Security Enhancements

While we do not publish every security enhancement and change we are making, please know that our Safe School Committee is actively and continually improving the culture of safety on our campus. As we practice Run, Hide, Fight through our lockdown drills throughout the year, we encourage you to engage with your students on the topic of school safety.

See Something, Say Something

HCS is asking for help in maintaining a culture of safety on our campus. As part of this community, if you see something that concerns you in person or online, please reach out to prevent a tragedy and protect someone from hurting themselves or others. In an emergency call 911, the Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 800-273-8255, or otherwise reach out to our security team at security@heritagechristian.net.

Front Gate & Exit Gate

  • During school hours, excluding arrival and dismissal time, all vehicles traveling on to campus will be stopped at the front gate by one of our officers for identification.
  • Identification will include asking you why are you visiting campus and reviewing your parent ID card or driver's license. Therefore, bring your ID to campus.
  • Between 8:30am and 2:30pm, the exit gate located by the baseball field, will be closed. Please approach the gate slowly and the gate will open as you cross the sensor.

Arrival & Dismissal Information

  • Please review these HCS Traffic Flow videos.
  • Follow the arrows with the different colors to reach your student’s drop-off curb.
  • Follow green arrows to exit campus. Do not drop off a student in a green arrow lane.

Carline Pick Up

  • Have your parent ID card or driver's license card with you.
  • If you do not have either ID, you will be asked to park and come in to pick up your student.
  • If you have someone other than a parent picking up your student, they MUST be on the authorized pick up list in your HCS Connect account.
  • If someone attempts to pick up your child and is not on the authorized pick up list, they will be denied access to pick up until you approve or a proper resolution can be reached.
  • Please make us aware of any custody concerns by emailing the details and documents to custodygroup@heritagechristian.net.
  • For safety reasons, please do not attempt to pick up your student in locations on or off campus other than the assigned curb based on their age group.

Visitor Parking

  • Please review the HCS Parking Map.
  • Please do not park in student or employee parking and do not park along curbs.

Building Check In

  • All visitors must register and obtain a visitors badge before access will be allowed into the school building. Please display this badge at all times.
  • Visitors will be asked for a parent ID or to turn in their driver's license while visiting campus.
  • Whenever possible, all visits to campus should be scheduled ahead with the school or the employee you are visiting.
