American Heritage School in American Fork, Utah will begin expanding its campus with a

The private, non-profit, parochial school for grades K–12 is making the major expansion in order

curriculum, to its’ award-winning orchestra and choir programs. Another 5,000
students nationwide and in 60 international settings use the American Heritage curriculum
focused on character-based education.
“The expansion has three phases,” said Principal, Grant Beckwith, “the first phase will be
completed this fall,” he noted, “with a new athletic stadium and fields and indoor training and
competition facilities. It’s a big upgrade, and we’re very excited.”
The new facilities will cover over 28 donated acres surrounding the current school located across
from the landmark Timpanogos Temple. The following is a schedule of the phased building plan:
Phase I: Athletic center with a multi-court competition gym, indoor track, dance rooms,
training and conditioning facilities, an outdoor stadium, and new athletic fields.
Phase II: Classroom expansion, including innovative lab spaces for science, technology,
engineering, art, and math.
Phase III: A performing arts center open to the community, a separate theatre and concert
hall, specialized spaces for performing arts education.
American Heritage School was developed in 1969 by parents of BYU High School Students, and
has grown into a Nationally-Accredited Private K-12 program where character, scholarship, and
liberty are its focus.
