Vision, Mission and History

Our Vision

To challenge, disciple and inspire our students and each other in a grace-based community characterized by Christ-centered relationships.


Our Mission

 We challenge our students through the academic model of Classical Christian Education.

We disciple our students when we humbly follow Christ and encourage them to do the same.

We inspire our students to hear their calling and live courageously as they step into the world.


Our History

Heritage Classical Christian Academy began in 1999, when Chris Baker, with the help of Bill and Lois Linton established Wildwood Christian School as an independent Christian school committed to providing a classical and biblical education for students in Grades 7 – 12. Located in Wildwood, Missouri, the school opened its doors to five students with a vision to help parents educate their children with love for the Lord their God – with all their heart, soul, mind and strength.

In 2010, the school partnered with the Journey Church and moved to its location in Manchester, Missouri.  At this point the school changed its name to Heritage Classical Christian Academy.  In the fall of 2012, Jason Wood became the headmaster and the school enrollment grew from 31 students to 74 students in 2014-2015 academic school year. In this same year, the school created a new entry point by establishing a Sixth Grade class, as well as expanding the athletic and fine arts programs to encourage well-rounded students.

In the spring of 2015, the Heritage Classical Christian Academy School Board began an intensive Capital Campaign with the purpose of purchasing a permanent location. A building was purchased in the spring of 2016 and extensive renovations began to create a space where our school could flourish.

Heritage moved into a permanent location in Fenton, MO in the fall of 2016.

At Heritage Academy we believe that a Christian classical education not only prepares students for college, but inspires them to live and lead as passionate, authentic, and humbly confident citizens in their churches and communities.
