FAFSA - Financial Aid

Khan Academy - SAT Preparation



To provide students and staff with a comprehensive knowledge and opportunities on post- secondary education options. Our goal is to expose all Heritage students to an array of career and college readiness opportunities. We begin by teaching college readiness in the classroom and later provide students with hands on experiences at different universities, colleges, career fairs and volunteer experiences. Encouraging students to get involved and become a part of their community is pivotal to our mission; that mission cannot be completed without educators, counselors, parent and families all working together. No one student is alike, however they all deserve equal opportunities.
