Discover Heritage Oak School


For the past 22 years, it has been the mission of Heritage Oak School to mentor and disciple students to learn independently, think critically, and communicate clearly and persuasively from a Biblical worldview in order to glorify Christ by demonstrating the gospel in every aspect of their lives.

Discover Who We Are

Heritage Oak School is a non-profit, K-12 private school that accepts no federal funding. We strive to keep tuition costs competitively low in order for Christian families of all economic levels to consider a Christ-centered education as a viable option for their children. While we are a ministry of Country Oaks Baptist Church, we are governed by our School Board with members from various churches within Kern County. Our desire is to provide a Christian alternative to education for the Greater Tehachapi Christian community and it is no the aim of this school to proselytize for any particular church or denomination.

DISCOVER What Makes us different

Several distinctives set Heritage Oak School apart from all other educational opportunities in our local community:

     • Our classical methodology, called the Trivium, grows with the student's developmental abiloity to be challenged from the earliest of days of the Grammar Stage (K-6), to the formative years of the Logic Stage (7-9), to the epxressive years of the Rhetoric Stage (10-12). 

     • As Tehachapi's only Christian school, students receive the highest quality apologetic training throughout their time at Heritage Oak including off campus opportunities to test junior and senior students as they prepare for College or Career options beyond graduation.

     • With smaller class sizes we are able to foster healthy student-teacher mentor relationships to disciple children and young adults in academics, problem solving, and spirityal formation and development. 

     • Our tradition of outstanding community service through the House System gives students an opportunity to serve in various types of gospel centered ministries from local projections to international missions.
