How is Heritage structured?
The course of study is built around a once-a-week, five-hour tutorial session with students in which work done at home with the family is reviewed; then new ideas, concepts, and facts are developed and explained, and new assignments are given. These tutorials focus on the core concepts needed for mastery of the material being studied and will include tests to determine the extent of this mastery. In addition, there will be reviews of written and oral assignments. Courses are offered for ten months (35 weeks, including orientation week and finals week). Tutorial hours are from 8:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., with a thirty-minute lunch break.
Is there an application fee?
All applications must be accompanied by a non-refundable application fee of $50 per student.
How much does it cost to attend Heritage?
$175 per student per month (for ten months) for the first student enrolled and $155 per student per month for any additional students from the same family.
How do I buy textbooks?
Through an annual registration fee of $250 per student contract. This fee includes the purchase of all books, including literature books. Do not wait too long to apply and register!

This encourages people to register in a timely fashion; otherwise, we cannot ensure that all students have the books they need when classes begin in August.
