Heritage Christian School neither solicits nor accepts government funding of any type; therefore, it is imperative that fees be paid when due. By policy, all school accounts, (tuition, hot lunch, after school care, etc.) must be kept current in order for students to continue their enrollment at HCS. Student records are only released when all accounts are paid in full. Tuition and fees are subject to annual change by the Heritage Christian School Board of Directors

Tuition Management for this service. Tuition is prorated for those attending a portion of the school year. Students attending any portion of a month, are charged tuition for the entire month.
The Board has implemented the student referral program. This is the opportunity for families to receive a discount of $1,000 towards their current tuition for every referred student that is board approved and is enrolled during the current school year. For students who enroll during the school year, the $1,000 discount will be prorated at amounts proportional to time enrolled. (i.e. 50% in current year and 50% in following year if enrolled at midyear and re enrolled the following year up the $1,000. This concept will support student enrollment while providing a tuition credit to the responsible families who introduce new families to Heritage Christian.
