At Heritage Christian Academy, we believe that students need a solid grounding in the word of God—the Bible—in order to bear fruit that glorifies God and blesses the world. While the primary responsibility for this grounding rests with a student’s family and church, Christian schooling presents an unparalleled opportunity to equip students with a biblical perspective on every subject area for all of life. Moreover, the psycho-social and moral formation of the student grows as he/she grows in his/her knowledge of biblical truth in the context of a gospel-centered community committed to orthodox (historic) Christian beliefs.
Pastor and author John Piper is perhaps best known for his claim that “God is most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in Him,” drawing from the Westminster Catechism statement that the chief end of humankind is “to glorify God and enjoy Him forever.” We believe that whatever glorifies God is best for His creatures. In other words, whatever is right is also good. Therefore, by educating students in light of the word and gospel of God, Heritage Christian Academy is contributing in many vital ways to the common good of the world.
