Scholars have the option to dress out of uniform.

Cost is $1 for the top, $1 for the bottom.

Heritage standard dress code is still expected (no holes in jeans, sleeves must be worn, shorts must be within 4 inches of the knee, skirts must reach the middle of the knee, no bare midriffs, no low-cut tops, etc.)  Please refer to the handbook for more information.

All scholars who drive to school must have their vehicle registered with the front office and have a parking permit hanging on their rear view mirror.  Any vehicle parked on campus without a permit can be subject to towing.  Please see the front office to register your vehicle(s) and pick up a parking pass for $10.

It’s officially game time! Fall sports are starting up this week and next. Stop by the office to pick up your spirit gear. Game Day and Football shirts are $15 each. Wearing either of these two shirts will get you in all of our home high school games throughout the entire year, otherwise cost is $4 for adults and $1 for students. Some sizes will be gone quick, so get yours before they are all gone! You can also purchase previous years’ spirit shirts for only $5 a piece. Go Heroes!!!

Our annual celebration of Constitution Week is just around the corner.  We will have lots of activities planned for this week for the whole family!  Stay tuned for details.

The homecoming dance will be Saturday, September 15th.  It will be for all high school scholars.  If you wish to bring a guest from another school, you will need to get a guest pass from the front office.  Tickets are on sale now at the front desk for $30 each.

Vending machines have been installed on campus. The school has no claim to these and no way to access them or maintain them. We are not able to make change or return lost money  If there are any issues regarding these machines we ask that scholars contact the vendor. Their number is 602-278-5330.

The vending machines are only available for use during our lunch periods. Scholars are not to be out at the machines at any other point during the school day.

*Remember to place your orders 24 hours in advance.

*Make sure that you finish the checkout process completely. It is very easy to accidentally leave items in your cart. After you complete your check out, you will get an email confirmation.

*In the event that you order lunch ahead of time and your scholar is absent, please contact Emily Asanovich at easanovich@heritageacademyaz.com no later than 8:00 AM that day. If no communication is made regarding what to do with that lunch, it will be donated to someone in need.

*Scholars who will be picking up the lunches need to use the name that is on the account.
