Due to COVID-19, we will be accepting transfer students throughout the 2020-2021school year—and your child is eligible for FREE tuition!

Following is the Information for Students enrolling or transferring in Kindergarten through Grade 7. For Preschool information, please scroll down to the Preschool section.

There are three steps for enrollment at Heritage Christian School in Grades K-7:

  1. Take a tour of the school (no-obligation, 30-45 minutes)
  2. Meet with the Principal for more details (30-45 minutes)
  3. New student academic placement testing (1 hour)

After testing, students are mailed acceptance letters shortly after testing. Then, all students are mailed Welcome Packets in late July with the school year calendar and all details.

Scholarships:

Ohio offers three FREE tuition scholarships that can be used at Heritage Christian School in grades K-7! Our school believes that an excellent education should be accessible to all, and we work hard to make sure our school is affordable for families. If your student qualifies for one of these scholarships, the only cost to you will be a $100 new student registration fee for a new student, or a $50 re-enrollment fee each year for a returning student. Then, students pay for the field trips and clubs that they choose to participate in. The scholarships can be renewed each year through the student’s graduation from high school! Below is information on three different scholarship options:
