Interested parents may begin the application process online or by picking up a packet from the school office, located at 649 Barr Road, Lexington, SC.

Our application process includes completing an application and a pastoral reference form and, for students entering classes two through high school, obtaining a teacher recommendation. Parents are also required to sign our Statement of Faith. Once the completed application packet, as well as the $50 application fee, is received by Heritage, an appointment will be scheduled for testing. Depending on the time of year, this may be in a group setting or one-on-one. After the testing, an appointment will be made for the parents and Head of Schools to meet. This is to provide the parents with an opportunity to ask any questions they may have and for the school to learn a little more about the family applying.

Once all of this has been completed, the admission committee will meet to make a final decision, and applicants will be notified by mail of the committee’s decision. Accepted applicants can secure their space in the class by sending in a $500 non-refundable registration deposit.

Admission Testing

The admission testing for kindergarten-age students consists of a developmental test and a test of school abilities. These are used to determine if there is a learning disability that would be better addressed in another setting and to determine if there are any behavioral issues.

Both new students and those who have completed Kindergarten at Heritage must complete a screening test before advancing to Class One.  Years have shown us that a certain score on the assessment indicates that a student is developmentally ready for Class One.  Please keep in mind that academics are accelerated at Heritage and that putting a child who is not developmentally ready into Class One would likely be stressful for the child.

Students applying to Class Two through Class Eight must complete a school abilities test as well as a standardized test of verbal and mathematics abilities that is grade appropriate. This is to determine if the child will be able to succeed in our accelerated curriculum.

Heritage Christian Academy admits students of any race, color, national or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarships, athletics, and other school-administered programs.

The school reserves the right to deny admission to a student if his or her ability, behavior, or emotional or physical handicap indicates that he or she would not be best served by our school program. Testing for readiness for the student’s entrance grade is required before acceptance.
