How To Get Started

1. Learn more about Heritage Oak.

We hope our website has already given you a glimpse of who we are, but there is so much more to see!

  • Schedule a visit to tour our classrooms with our Admissions Counselor.
  • Pick up a copy of Discover Classical Christian Education: The Essential Guide for Parents during your tour and read it prior to submitting your application.
  • Read our Mission and Doctrinal Statements.
  • Attend the Parenting Course offered twice annually. (This course may be taken during the Fall term of the first year of enrollment.)
  • Download our Admissions Checklist to help guide you through the process.

2. Submit your Application.

Heritage Oak accepts applications up to December 1 if seating allows, however those desiring to start school at the beginning of an academic year, should submit applications prior to June 1. (Applications for students received on or after June 2  are considered late enrollment and are subject to additional fees.) Families may pick up an Admissions Packet in the school office, request a packet by mail, or download documents from the school website (below).

Each application submitted must include the following completed documents in order to be processed for consideration:

  • Application for Admission
  • Church Reference Form
  • Student Questionnaire (7th-­12th grade only)
  • Completed Parenting Class Form OR Sign Up for Parenting Class in the Office (must be completed by Dec. 31 of year entering HOS).
  • Application Fee (late fees apply after June 1)

3. Complete a Meet and Greet with the Admissions Counselor.

Students meet with our counselor to get to know their on-campus advocate during the admissions process while completing an initial assessment to determine spiritual and social readiness for the Heritage Oak program.

4. Attend a New Family Consultation & Interview.

The purpose of the New Family Consultation and Interview with our Admissions Committee is to determine that a unified partnership exists between the parents and the school based on spiritual, academic, and social expectations.

5. Provide Student Records.

Submit student report cards, IEPs, immunization records, and any other documents that will help ensure the School is able to fully meet your child’s learning needs.

6. Complete the Academic Assessment and Student Academic Information Form.

Upon conditional acceptance of your application, you will be asked to schedule an academic assessment. The purpose of this test is two fold:

• by providing information needed to make a proper grade assignment; and

• by providing academic and classroom readiness information for your child’s future teacher in order to better assist the student as he or she enters the classroom environment.

Parents are asked to complete the Student Academic Information Form and provide prior student records including report cards and IEPs to determine placement and student learner needs.

7. Complete the Acceptance Packet.

Upon receiving your final acceptance, families will complete the Acceptance Packet forms within 2 weeks in order to finalize enrollment.

8. Enrollment Contract Signing.

Our Admissions Counselor will schedule an appointment for you to sign your Enrollment Contract with the school’s financial representative who will answer any questions you may have and discuss tuition scholarship aid if any has been awarded.

Once your contract is signed, you will have completed the enrollment process and your student will be guaranteed placement in his or her classroom.
