Heritage Christian School began in 1971 with a vision of the Tacoma Bible Presbyterian Church to offer a school to help educate its own children. In the first year there was only a kindergarten class in the church building. The school consisted of one teacher and six students! From that small humble beginning, the school has grown steadily. Heritage moved to its present location in University Place in 1972, and the facilities have been enlarged several times. Presently, the school has a beautiful campus, and a full staff for grades Pre-Kindergarten-Eight.
