“Sending our son to the United States and Heritage Academy was one of the best decisions we have made for him. The school‘s block system enabled him to improve in both his academics and competitive golf, and he rose to the top in both. He is graduating early, is a member of the National Honor Society, and has committed to play collegiate golf. Heritage Academy has supported him with each step and on his path to become a professional golfer, a leader on and off the course, and helped him to build his character by teaching him to serve others.”
Every high school student at Heritage Academy has access to a college advising counselor who will be there each step of the way to drive the American college search and application process. Results show a 100% college placement rate and significant academic and athletic scholarships earned by our students. High school students receive progressive and abundant guidance for the college admissions process. For student-athletes, the college advising counselor works with each students’ training academy regarding all academic matters during consideration for college recruitment. The passion-area talents of our students heavily influence college candidacy. Our students are aware that high grades and achievement in academics are the foundation of college acceptance and scholarship eligibility at all colleges. Students are encouraged to accept their responsibility to work closely with their school counselor and their training academy to complete the necessary paperwork and standardized testing requirements in a timely fashion.
The NCAA course requirements are built into the Heritage Academy high school course offerings and required as a part of earning the Heritage Academy College Preparatory diploma. Each student’s college advising counselor is well-versed with NCAA requirements. The counselor works with students through the matriculation process to insure proper course placement. The counselor discusses and acts as the liaison with NCAA regarding questions that arise and makes sure that all students, parents, and recruiters are made aware of the NCAA expectations and requirements.
The web-based college and career readiness program, Naviance, is overseen by the Director of Students Services.

Naviance is used by our entire staff and faculty throughout the year. Students in grades 6-12 are encouraged to use Naviance as a vital tool when working individually or in small groups all along the college search and acceptance process.
