In about 4 months, Heritage Christian Academy will be celebrating the 7th Commencement Exercises for the high school. The 27 current seniors will join a growing list of alumni that have graduated from HCA. Of these 27 seniors, seven have attended Heritage (and Westminster prior to the merger) since kindergarten. Their kindergarten teacher was Mrs. Jenny Preston, who was in her first year of teaching!
Recently, these seven ‘lifers’ had an opportunity to travel to the East Campus and visit with Mrs. Preston and her current kindergarten class. Each senior had an opportunity to share a favorite memory from his or her time as well as their college plans once they graduate. The kindergartners also had a chance to ask questions about what it’s like to grow up in school.
It was clear that Mrs. Preston had an impact on these students as they all recalled their starting point in school. Thank you Mrs. Preston for all that you have done and continue to do in our Kindergarten classroom!
These soon-to-be-graduates have had 13 years of Christian Education poured into their lives. The focus of that outstanding education at Heritage Christian Academy has been centered around 4 Cs:
- Critical/Conceptual Thinking
As the kindergartners begin their journey in education, their families can expect more of the same, as HCA grows, expands and continues to seek excellence in education.
According to the most recent Cardus Education Survey, Christian School Graduates:
- See themselves as prepared well to engage in meaningful relationships
- Stabilize communities through commitment to family
- Feel better prepared for college than graduates of other schools
- Give generously
- Rarely doubt their faith
- Believe that morality is unchanging and absolute
What parent wouldn’t love to see their child graduate with these qualities?
Congratulations to our seniors . . . and welcome to our kindergartners as they start their journey!
