HCS offers an academic program guided by the Ontario Government curriculum as seen through a Christian worldview. The curriculum includes music, drama, art, physical education, Bible, and core French programs beginning in Junior kindergarten and ending with Grade 8 graduation.


Heritage Christian School’s teaching philosophy is founded on Christian beliefs such as:

  • this world belongs to God

  • all things hold together in Christ

  • all truth is God’s truth

  • each child is made in and bears God’s image

  • each one of us is our brother’s/sister’s keeper

  • each one is accountable to God for how we use our time and talents

Student Evaluation

 Students at HCS are evaluated on a regular basis. HCS does not participate in Government EQAO standardized testing. At Heritage, we use the Measure of Academic Progress (MAP)assessment tool, which allows us to monitor induvial student growth and learning in the areas of math, reading, and language usage.


Conversations with local secondary schools indicate that our students are well prepared to continue at the secondary level with the same degree of success they experienced at Heritage. Many of our students have excelled at the academic level and/or specialized programs like the Baccalaureate.
