Heritage was recently honored with the recognition as the top school in Central Indiana for producing college-ready grads, confirming our belief that we are exceptional in preparing our students for college. However, we believe that in addition to our academic rigor, what truly sets us apart and explains our success is our equally valued focus on transformational discipleship. By itself, academic excellence doesn’t address the whole person. The powerful combination of competitive academics and relational discipleship creates a game-changing opportunity for our students to experience the fullness of all that God created them to be.
How Do We Disciple Our Students?
In order to provide transformational discipleship, we use God’s inerrant Word as our guide for teaching, mentoring, and training. Our “Teach, Mentor, Train” discipleship model puts definition to what Heritage has been doing from the beginning.
Heritage was founded on the premise that the Bible is essential for all of life, including academics. As a result of this belief, we are very intentional about teaching our students the facts of the Bible, core doctrines, and principles of Christian living. These subjects are specifically taught in Bible classes and chapels, but we also integrate Bible teaching in all classroom environments.

All of our teachers are Christians who value the opportunity to educate in their subject area of expertise and help students grow in their faith in Christ. Teachers, coaches and staff are intentional about building relationships with students. Doing so facilitates natural opportunities to teach character and leadership, model a Christian lifestyle and train them to serve God and others.
Our classrooms, athletics, and extracurriculars provide opportunities for our students to develop leadership skills, identify their gifts, articulate the gospel, and practice serving others. These opportunities are a direct result of our commitment to mentor our students both in and out of the classroom.
