Heritage School provides a distinctive classical, Christ-centered education that prepares students for servant-leadership and lives that glorify God. The Heritage graduate strives to exemplify Jesus Christ, to think critically, speak articulately, write effectively, pursue learning for his/her lifetime, and persevere in all that he or she endeavors to do. The goal of the rigorous, academically rich training results in graduates who are able to learn independently because they have gained the tools for learning. Service and Christ-like character are of paramount importance to both parents and faculty. Heritage School, a nondenominational community which agreeably embraces multiple Christian churches throughout the area, was established in 1994 to serve the children in the Texas Hill Country.
