What To Expect

Missional

Heights Academy is missional. We accept children from any religious or non-religious background.

SPIRITUAL- DISCIPLINES

We lead children to practice intentional spiritual disciplines focusing on their relationship with God over religion. These include praise and worship, prayer, reading and memorizing God’s word, and etc. Children also attend a weekly Chapel class that brings the Bible alive in an age-appropriate way!

State of the Art

Our state of the art facility sets a tone of excellence by providing welcoming, purposeful, and safe learning spaces. We will have a brand new building with one of the largest auditoriums in our city opening in March 2024. Safety has remained a number one priority as we renovate our spaces. We understand the importance of creating a safe and captivating environment that creates opportunity for growth. Our classrooms are clean, neat, and creative as we recognize that children learn most effectively through play, exploration and age-appropriate hands-on activities. 

Community

Heights Academy is an opportunity to join a community. Our relationship-driven approach will allow families to connect in real, authentic ways. We regularly communicate with families through a one-stop App. We also provide opportunities for families to connect with each other. Lastly, our staff is part of our bigger church community, and invites our families to do the same. We offer resources to strengthen families including small groups led through Heights Church for parents, families, and kids.

Full Day

We are a Christian-based preschool experience with intentional full-day care. Our drop off begins at 7:30am and pick up ends at 5:30pm. Our offerings also include both half day (8am-12pm) and full day preschool options. We have an enthusiastic extended care team to offer additional care and experiences when the school day ends at 3pm.
