Heritage Academy is located in downtown Augusta. Our school exists to meet the educational needs of low-income families, empowering them to become a positive influence for Christ in our community and around the world.
65% of our students live in a single parent family.
10% of our students live with a grandmother or guardian.
90% of our students are African American.
85% of our families qualify for free or reduced lunch.
Our median family income is $17,000/year.
Our GOAL donors are connected to us not as alumni, parents or grandparents. They are connected to us through the heart. They are passionate about changing outcomes for children from families who live at lower income levels and are located in school districts that are failing. Heritage Academy provides an alternative... and opportunities that can change the future of a child by providing a quality, college preparatory, Christian education in a rigorous and nurturing environment.
From a grandparent: “My granddaughter’s confidence in her abilities has increased since being at Heritage. Her future goals have become more concrete and been reinforced by her teachers. I have peace of mind that when I drop her off each morning, I will not be called about some incident. We both feel safe. This school enhances our family’s Christian values. We need to invest in things that last, like education, not in things that perish, like the latest fad. My child’s education is an investment worth making.”
