National Junior Honor Society
We are a service-oriented club for grades 7-9. Scholars gain leadership experience while serving their local communities, participating in events such as Constitution Night, graffiti cover-up, serving at the food bank, Helicopter Santa, and many more.
National Junior Honor Society is a highly esteemed national organization. Consideration for acceptance is based on the candidate’s demonstration of leadership, scholarship, character and service. We look forward to the opportunity to further enhance these important qualities here at Heritage Academy and are confident that membership in this organization will provide many benefits to our scholars both now and in the future as they apply for college entrance and scholarships.

The Heritage Academy Laveen (HAL) Step Team was created in order to create a unique art form that allows scholars to make music with their body. The HAL Step Team performs at various school and community events throughout the year. Participation on the step team will develop leadership skills and the opportunity to grow physically, mentally, and morally. The HAL Step Team is like no other club on campus and we would love to have you join us. Contact the school front desk for more information.

Science Bowl is a yearly competition that tests students’ knowledge of science and mathematics. In a round robin format, teams of four go head to head in a jeopardy style game and try to answer questions about all areas of math and science correctly. Winners of local competitions advance to national competition and compete against teams from all over the country. The HAL science bowl group begins practicing in September by meeting after school and going through past years’ questions. We also invite guests to speak to help our scholars expand their science knowledge. This competition, and the practices leading up to it, helps foster a love of science in a fun, friendly environment.
