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 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 expanded 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. Dr. Matt Heckel serves as our headmaster.

At Heritage Academy we believe that a Christian classical education not only prepares students for college, but inspires them to life beyond college as they step courageously into the world.
