QUALITIES OF A HERITAGE SCHOOL STAFF MEMBER
Strong moral character, devotion to God, a calling from God to love and teach young people, and a passion for life-long learning...that's the Heritage Faculty!
Heritage School’s requirements for faculty are in many ways more stringent than those required by other schools.

All employees at Heritage School are expected to fully embrace and support the Statement of Belief.
Applicants for teaching positions at Heritage School will possess both experience teaching and a Bachelor's degree, preferably in the subject matter for which they are applying. An advanced degree and state teaching certification(s) are definitely a plus.
