Breaking down barriers

Attending Heritage Academy has been a godsend for sisters Autumn and Ariana W. – a rekindled passion for learning, improved grades, and new friendships. Said mom, Andrea: “I think about the impact that these kinds of opportunities have, not only on the children’s education, but also their lives. Every child deserves the best education that’s available to them and money shouldn’t be a barrier.”

School choice is popular with parents because it works and because it’s right.
