The Core Values of Heritage Christian School

  1. We value education: It is a privilege to attend HCS. Focusing on learning is a high priority.
  2. We value truth: We don’t lie or deceive people, whether they are children or adults.
  3. We value people: We don’t call people names or show disrespect to them. We honor people and include people.
  4. We value the Word of God: We read it and memorize verses and passages. We choose to live by God’s instructions.
  5. We value wisdom, knowledge, and understanding: We search for these like we are searching for treasure.
  6. We value authority: It is God-given for our good and our protection; therefore we honor and obey authority.
  7. We value diligence and hard work: We believe that God has given us talents and abilities. We work on them, improve them, and become competent with them. Competence in work leads to places of leadership.
  8. We value good character: We choose to have Christ-like qualities growing in us and we encourage them in others. We choose friends who have these qualities. Some of these qualities are: self-control, generosity, love, integrity, obedience, dependability, and kindness.
  9. We value a relationship with God: We look to Him for guidance; we love Him with our whole heart; we pray to Him, sing songs of praise to Him, and obey Him.  We look for His work in our lives.
