Our Educational Philosophy

Heritage Academy’s philosophy of education is derived from the classical education approach and TEA’s Effective Schools framework. We believe that students thrive in an environment where:

  • Strong instructional leadership uses a continuous improvement approach to plan effectively. 

  • Outstanding, well-supported teachers hold high expectations for ALL students. 

  • Effective data-driven instruction with frequent progress monitoring and different instructional modalities, including the Socratic method, helps all students achieve mastery of the essential knowledge and skills. 

  • An orderly, safe environment and positive school culture promote learning. 

  • Sufficient time on task enables ALL students to learn the material. 

  • A high-quality curriculum grounded in the classical liberal arts promotes critical thinking, the ability to discourse in a civil manner, and a love of learning. 

  • Systematic character development and opportunities for service prepare scholars for the best life possible for one’s self and others. 

  • Positive home/school relations and parent engagement are critical for student success.
