Heritage Academy is improving the education of children who are typically zoned for poor performing schools with high incidence of behavioral misconduct. We also are addressing the spiritual development of the children through Bible instruction and Christian community.
Both of these efforts lead to am improved quality of life for the children and their families.

Our strategies include:
-a rigorous curriculum with scaffolded support
-a caring and committed staff who will do whatever it takes
-implementation of best practices in instruction
-an active Arts program
-involvement of community in providing scholarships and positive afterschool programs and summer camp experiences

Heritage Academy is committed to executing its program with excellence. Our staff is chosen for its credentials, calling and commitment for executing the mission of the school. The undergo continuous professional development to keep current with best practices. They collaborate weekly to stay informed about the children they serve.
The development office is active in getting the message about our mission to the community. Through its efforts, our revenues has grown by at least 20% every year.
We actively recruit more Georgia citizens to participate in the tax credit scholarship program. This effort has grown the participation by 50%.

We monitor student progress in 5 ways:
1. progress and report cards
2. standardized test scores
3. admissions into competitive high schools
4. contact with alums during high school
5. college admissions and post-secondary education

We have completed the goals of our Strategic Plan from 2007. We completely renovated our current, historic school building. We are now a K-8 school with 210 students.

We are in the process of becoming accredited by Advanced Ed (formerly SACS). We are also investigating the addition of a 3 and 4 year old program.

Board Leadership Practices

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization


Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?



Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?



Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements in the past year?



Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?



Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?


Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
