It’s time to start thinking about the 2018 science tour for 9th and 10th grade scholars that will take place October 9-12, 2018. Your scholar is eligible to sign up if they will be in either 9th or 10th grade in the 2018-2019 school year. This year’s tour will include time at University of San Diego, the Scripps institute (biomedical research institute), ocean kayaking and marine biology at La Jolla, and STEAM workshops at the Fleet Science Center.

Space for this trip is very limited – scholars from all three Heritage campuses are invited to participate, and only 44 slots are open. In order to secure a slot a non-refundable $250 deposit must be submitted to the front office as soon as possible. It is anticipated that this trip will fill quickly (in the past, Mesa campus has done their own trip, and it is always full).

You will find an itinerary for the trip here, as well as a payment schedule. This trip will only cost $650 per scholar.

If you have any questions, please contact Mr. Halterman at bhalterman@heritageacademyaz.com

Scholars who will be juniors or seniors this fall are invited to participate in the Independence Tour in October.   This trip will take scholars to  Williamsburg; Monticello; Washington, DC; Philadelphia; Valley Forge; Gettysburg; and much more.  There will be an information meeting for scholars and parents on Thursday, April 26th at 6:00 PM in room 442.  For more information click here.  Contact Mr.  Sheffer with any questions at msheffer@heritageacademyaz.com.

France and Spain Tour 2018

There will be a meeting for scholars interested in going on a language tour to Spain and France over Spring Break of 2019.  It will be in room in 242 on April 26th at 7:00 PM.  Contact Mr. Arnold at jarnold@heritageacademyaz.com.
