Heritage Academy is a four-year Christian boarding academy for students in grades 9-12. It is situated amid rolling and rich farmland atop the Cumberland Plateau on State Highway 62, nine miles east of Monterey, Tennessee. Its mission is to provide Christ-centered Adventist education to young people seeking to hasten the Lord's return.
The school has an active academic curriculum, vocational program and spiritual atmosphere. The vocational program, training our youth in useful labor, incorporates technology related areas such as video production, and mission aviation as well as traditional areas including field/greenhouse farming, mechanical work, and literature evangelism. Students conduct weeks of prayer for local Adventist grade schools and travel to present spiritual programs throughout the southeast.
Students receive thorough instruction in our fundamental beliefs as well as the prophecies of Daniel and Revelation. Students are taught to present messages in worship, and are prepared to share their faith.
Additionally, Heritage Academy has a disaster response program in which students are trained in First Aid, CPR and a variety of Community Emergency Response Training courses. Students teach disaster response and respond to disasters both at home and abroad. Last year students responded to a local ice storm, which left 55,000 without power for up to four weeks. Students ran disaster kitchens and a disaster warehouse, meeting the needs of an average of 1,000 people daily. Additionally, a group of students responded with a medical team to set up clinics in Nepal days after the earthquake struck there.
Heritage Academy's goal is to develop the character of Christ within our students and enable them to become masters of circumstances rather than victims of such as they serve Christ in ministry to others.
