Book Lists

New for 2021-2022!

One of HCCA’s goals is not only to see students leave school with hearts and minds shaped by the gospel of Jesus, we also want our students to leave with the makings of a life-long library of good books. While Heritage purchases textbooks for most classes, we require students to come to class with their own texts in our literature classes and some history classes. These are texts we believe your students will want to keep for years to come.

These books are required for class. Some of them need to be a specific edition or translation. If you plan on buying your books through Amazon.com, click on the title of each book. The embedded link will take you to the correct edition of the text. If you plan on buying your books elsewhere, the ISBN numbers provided can help you search for the correct edition.
