Schools nationwide are dealing with a vaping epidemic.  Please click here to learn more about this dangerous habit and how it pertains to Heritage Academy.

Have you seen Once on This Island?  This musical was nominated for numerous Tony Awards including Best Musical and Best Original Score and it won the Theatre World Award in 1991.  In 1995 it won the Lawrence Olivier Award for Best New Musical.  It is currently on Broadway now for the second time and can be seen locally for one weekend only.

The outstanding and innovative drama program at Heritage Academy Laveen will be performing Once on This Island at the Kroc Center (1375 E. Broadway in Phoenix) with three shows only:  April 20th at 7 PM, April 21st at 3 PM, and April 21st at 7 PM.  Tickets are $8 for ages 3-17 and $10 for 18 and over.  You may click here to order your tickets or visit or call the front office at 602-290-8546.  Any tickets still available may be sold at the door.

Tickets are $50 at the front desk.

Graduation is on Wednesday May 16, 2018.

Mandatory graduation rehearsal will be Tuesday May 15, 2018. This will be at Heritage

Graduation will be held at South Mountain High School Auditorium, located at 5401 S 7th St, Phoenix, AZ 85040. The ceremony will begin at 7:00 pm. Doors will open for seating at 6:30.  Doors will close for the procession at 6:55.  Doors will be reopened after the procession.  Each graduating senior will be given 10 tickets to the ceremony. If your family is in need of more seats, you will be able to purchase additional tickets in the front office for $10.00.

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.  For more information click here.  Contact Mr.  Sheffer with any questions at msheffer@heritageacademyaz.com.

France and Spain Tour 2018
