American Heritage School:
LOVE OF GOD
By infusing the restored gospel of Jesus Christ into all aspects of its curriculum, American Heritage School helps parents teach their children this foundational truth: Of all the good that we can accomplish in this life, the greatest good can only be achieved as we seek to follow the two great commandments.
Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
This is the first and great commandment.
And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. (Matt. 22:37–39)
LOVE OF FREEDOM
When America’s Founding Fathers forged a constitutional republic and paired it with a free market system, an unprecedented era of human flourishing was launched that has blessed America—and the world—ever since. As our Mission Statement says, American Heritage students develop “a love, understanding and appreciation for American the Founding Fathers” because this precious heritage must be defended and improved upon to extend the blessings of freedom to future generations.
LOVE OF LEARNING
Our Mission Statement declares that AHS students will acquire “the academic knowledge and skills necessary to be able to make self-education a life-long pursuit,” and that “learning to reason and discern between right and wrong, truth and error” is an essential part of the American Heritage experience. Students blossom into the women and men Heavenly Father knows they can become as they discover their talents and expand their minds to be the best instruments in the hands of God that they can be. This is the work of a lifetime, which makes learning how to learn critical.
Our rigorous and robust program offerings include STEM labs, makerspaces and shuttle simulators; the state’s top youth orchestra program; dozens of AP courses; competitive athletics
educating hearts, minds, and bodies
leads to better student outcomes
Our parents and students tell us that our teachers are the biggest difference makers in their educational experience. Educators who are empowered to draw on the entire spectrum of human knowledge and experience—the spiritual and the intellectual—can reach both the mind and the heart of their students. This powerful combination leads to deeper, lasting change in the lives of our students.
“I LOVE this school! I went there all of high school and it was life changing. Every teacher is so amazing and committed to helping the students and the atmosphere is one of learning, love and respect! If you are looking for a top tier school, not only academically but also just holistically, I would suggest this school over any other!”
“In the last nine years, five of our children have attended AHS ranging from 1st grade to high school graduation and each one of them has loved it there. The teachers are knowledgeable, compassionate, and skillful at empowering students to develop their ability to think critically. As a parent, I have felt support from the administrators and staff as they have always responded immediately to any needs our family has had. The facilities and extracurricular programs are fantastic.”

Education that meets
No matter your family’s current situation and lifestyle, American Heritage offers educational options that fit your needs. We offer:
- as you’ve seen above—a traditional, full-day, on-campus experience with a wide array of curricular and extracurricular programs;
- a part-day, reduced-price on-campus program called AHS Essentials;
- a fully accredited online 7–12 middle and high school featuring live teachers and live student interaction, available anywhere in the world;
- a complete home school curriculum that ranges from parent-led to student-led lessons, also available across the globe.
And, thanks to generous private donors, we carry no debt which allows us to offer all of these top-tier programs at a fraction of the cost of similar private-school offerings. We have the freedom to teach “by study and also by faith” because we neither solicit nor accept any government funding.
Come see for yourself!
At American Heritage School, we completely open up our program so you and your child may observe everything in action. We typically spend up to an hour covering those sections of our campus of greatest interest to you. We love your questions and invite you to bring them with you. Our teachers and students are familiar with the occasional tour group quietly entering and observing their classroom for a few minutes.
Tours can be scheduled at 9 a.m. or 1 p.m., Monday through Friday when school is in session. Please use the scheduler below:
Are There Other Ways to Observe the School in Action?
Yes! We know changing schools is a big decision that is never made casually. We invite potential 7–12 grade students to come spend a day with us. The morning begins when your child is introduced to a student ambassador who then accompanies your child through their class schedule, answers questions, makes the necessary introductions, and ultimately helps your child experience the culture, teaching methods, and programs of American Heritage.
