International Students

We are excited that you are considering Heritage Christian Academy as your school in the United States, and encourage you to learn more below.  Kansas City is a perfect place for you to improve your English, learn about the US culture and feel safe in a loving environment.

I know that you have many options for schools.  Some of the reasons I know that Heritage is a great place for international students include our very high academics, American students are looking forward to meeting you and being your friend, teachers who are excited you are coming and who want to help you succeed, and families who are waiting to open their homes to you.

I am dedicated to helping you with the process, answering questions, and giving you all the support that you need to be successful.  I am happy to help in any way I can and look forward to meeting you soon!
