When people describe what makes Heritage Christian Academy unique, one of the first things we often hear is, “It feels like family.” There is a relational warmth and connection among members of the Heritage community which we warmly extend to everyone we welcome through our doors. There are many ways for you to be connected and engaged in Heritage life. The following are some of the most important ones.
While the spirit of hospitality is available to all, cultivating real lasting relationships requires an investment of time and intentionality. That’s why we promote a wide variety of social events (what you might hear referred to as “Connections” events) throughout the year for our preschool through high school families. Some Connections events include:
HCA uses the rSchoolToday Activity Scheduler to manage our complete school calendar, including athletics, the academic calendar and other events. Families appreciate having a single, go-to place for up-to-date information about what’s happening, when and where. There are even a mobile app and calendar-syncing capabilities!
HCA prides itself on robust, timely and sometimes lively communication with parents and other members of our community. In addition to our school information system FACTS (formerly Renweb), we utilize Google Classroom LMS for teacher-student/parent communication and MailChimp for several content-rich communications including our Elementary Weekly and Upper School Weekly newsletters. (Our readership rate consistently hovers right around 50%—nearly double the industry standard.)
The HCA blog is where you’ll find regular posts on the full range of topics of what’s happening at HCA. Newsletter snippets will point back to blog articles with more detail, which helps us keep our emails clean, simple, and easy for readers to scan to find what’s most important for them. Our blog is also where you’ll find stories of the many great things that are happening in the life of Heritage Christian Academy through our amazing students, teachers and parents. Check in often, or subscribe to ensure you don’t miss any of our quality content!
HCA maintains an active social media presence on a variety of channels to highlight the activities and accomplishments of our community. Be sure to like, follow, and/or subscribe on each of the platforms you use and help us spread the good news about what God is doing through HCA.
