In a culture that has become increasingly secular and hostile to the Christian faith, Heartland Christian is diligently and passionately working to raise up young men and women who are highly educated and effective leaders. Heartland is a school with a safe environment and an atmosphere that is distinctly Christian, where students learn to lead, serve and grow into the person God has called them to be.
Heartland Christian began as a dream. A dream that led us down a path of faith, trust and unbelievable miracles.
The dream itself was a simple one --- to provide families an affordable educational option in a city where no Christian school was available. Included in that vision were programs of excellence in academics, Christian discipleship, leadership training, athletics and the arts. With only 52 days until the first day of class, a board of directors was established, a Headmaster was hired and Heartland was offered a home in the offices of a local businessman. The Heartland dream became a reality.
Fifty-two days leaves very little room for error, especially for a dream and a vision so much larger than any one person. The whirlwind planning was only possible through the combined effort of Godly men and experienced teachers who were confident in what God had called them to do.
On August 19, 2013, Heartland Christian opened for its first day of classes with 26 students. The applications poured in and we ended 2014 with nearly 40 students. With 60 students in 2015, we realized God's dream was bigger than ours, which launched us into an expansion project that would more than double the current facility. The need for expansion was confirmed when we began the 2016 year with over 80 students. Now in its seventh year, Heartland is currently offering unique and transforming opportunities to 135 young people.
The heartland ATMOSPHERE
The Heartland team works diligently to cultivate a leadership atmosphere among the student body--
an atmosphere in which young hearts and minds can be trained with respect and grace.
Heartland admits students of any race, color, and national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to the students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, and national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, athletics, and other school-administered programs. However, we reserve the right to limit our enrollment in number so that the quality of our academic program is not impaired. Also, we reserve the right not to accept or to dismiss those students whose worldview is in direct opposition of our understanding of Biblical teaching. All students and their parents are expected to be open to the spirit and purpose of the school.
While we accept and follow the teachings of the Bible as our final authority in all matters, for the purposes of the faith, doctrine, practice, policy, discipline, building use, employment practices, etc., of Heartland Christian School, the School Board is our final interpretive authority on the Bible's meaning and application at Heartland Christian School in all matters.
