Leading the Movement

With a proven record of innovation and stability over the last 21 years, American Heritage Charter Schools have been leading the charter movement to bring choice in public education to thousands of local families.

Striving for Excellence

From our challenging curriculum, to our highly qualified teachers, to our caring staff, to our beautiful campuses, we strive for excellence in everything we do - and ask our students to do the same.

Embracing American Heritage

We don't just teach American Heritage, we embrace it. We believe that our founding principles are a beacon of liberty and opportunity for all, and we honor the sacrifices of those who have fought to secure our freedom.

Strengthening Character

We believe the traditional values of hard work, integrity, and personal responsibility are vital to the success of our students, and we seek to support our parents in their efforts to instill those values in their students.
