Goals for Our Graduates

While each student is uniquely individual, there are specific Christian traits we desire of every graduate from Heritage Oak School. Having thoughtfully selected the Knight as the school mascot, we see this figure representing those who would faithfully give all to serve the King of kings while living an exemplary life that honors the Lord.

Our school mascot is also an acronym that lays out the standard and code of conduct by which every instructor models his or her own life and the governing principle by which they craft their lessons for the students they teach. It is our objective that every graduate would be characterized by the traits of the “ideal” knight.

No matter where God directs our alumni in the future, these are the godly character traits they will need in order to fulfill their calling throughout their lives. It is our hope and prayer that they will thereby bless their families, churches, communities, and the Kingdom of Christ as they faithfully serve their Lord and King!

K - Know God's Word

Graduates will possess a love for God’s Word as well as a sound understanding of His Word, so they are equipped to view every area of life and learning in light of the Scriptures (Psalm 119:105).

N - Nurture Godly Character

Graduates will have experienced learning in a community context where character formation is part of daily life and students learn to lovingly navigate communal life together in a Christ-like fashion which is intended to nurture a solid Christian character. Romans 5:4

I - Influence the World with the Gospel

Graduates will know, love and embrace the Gospel of Jesus Christ, and be well equipped to articulate and live out the Gospel by faithfully using the gifts they have been given to serve and minister to the world. Matthew 28:19

G - Grow in Wisdom

Graduates will be trained and equipped through the study of the arts and sciences that they might grow in knowledge and wisdom, enabling them to pursue future endeavors with proficiency and confidence. Proverbs 1:7; 9:10

H - Honor God

Graduates will be equipped to gloifry and honor God, hereby trnasforming our culture through the disciplines of the liberal and common arts, that they may cultivate homes, churches, orgnizations, businesses, and communities that embody that which is true, good, and beautiful.  II Timothy 2:21

T - Think Clearly with Discernment

Graduates will be well equipped to think clearly in order to discern what God declares is righteous and just, so they may walk in integrity and in every good path without being taken captive by worldly philosophies that are contrary to God’s Word. Proverbs 2:9

S - Serve Others

Graduates will be equipped to lead and serve sacrificially as Christ served; not because they are all naturally gifted, but because they are image bearers of the most High God, trained and equipped to make disciples of Christ. Matthew 20:28; 28:19

No matter where God directs our alumni in the future, these are the godly character traits they will need in order to fulfill their calling throughout their lives. It is our hope and prayer that they will thereby bless their families, churches, communities, and the Kingdom of Christ as they faithfully serve their Lord and King!
