Experience the World Beyond the Classroom
Most schools have outings just for their youngest learners with field trips ending by the time a student reaches high school. At Heritage Oak, we think that students need more first hand experiences than just a trip to the zoo in first grade or an outing to the lake in 5th grade. With a quest for direct or primary learning experiences, our students have multiple opportunities to adventure outside the classroom from kindergarten all the way through 12th grade.
Quest for Knowledge
Whether it's a day trip to one of the prestigious museums of Los Angeles or a tour of NASA at Edwards Air Force Base, students will have an opprotunity to see first hand some of the things they study about in books. With pre- and post- lesson instruction from mentor teachers, Heritage Oak will make the most of your child's off campus education.
quest for experience
There is some truth to the old adage by Ben Franklin, "Tell me and I forget, teach me and I may remember, involve me and I learn." Not everyone learns in the same way, but a multi-sensory experience often solidifies for a student what the instructor has talked about in a classroom or what one has read in a book. Faculty members at Heritage Oak carefully select various off-campus experiences for their students in order to reinforce lessons learned in the classroom and to prepare them for life after graduation.
QUEST FOR adventure
Somewhere in the heart of every student is a desire to explore and experience new things... an adventure into the unknown. And education shouldn't be dull or monotonous. At Heritage Oak, our curriculum is carefully selected to meet the developmental needs and hunger for student knowledge at each grade level. Variety is the spice of life and adventuring outside the classroom can keep learners engaged at a higher level.
QUEST FOR Mission
Graduates of Heritage Oak should be prepared to live in and engage the world around them without becoming absorbed by the culture itself. We believe the Christian experience for 7th - 12th grade should include various opportunities for students to encounter different people, cultures, and beliefs systems with a goal toward guiding others to Christ in a gracious and winsome manner. Off-campus trips include experiences from local missions to college campuses as well as a growing list of outings and travel opportunities.
