It is our earnest desire for each of our students to graduate with the most prestigious and coveted title available in the state, “FLORIDA ACADEMIC SCHOLARS.” It is achieved by fulfilling all of our graduation requirements. A score of 1270 or above must be earned on the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) of the College Entrance Examination or a score of 28 or higher must be made on the American College Testing (ACT) Program. The Florida Academic Scholar is entitled to automatic admission to a state university and a special scholarship from the Bright Futures Scholarship Program.

Heritage offers a great diversity in extracurricular activities. The Middle and High School students have the opportunity to participate in athletic competition on and off the courts. Volleyball, basketball, fast pitch softball and golf are the main competitive activities. Fitness and entertainment are products of field day, intramural sports and physical education classes. Heritage is committed to a sound, well rounded and busy extracurricular program.
The school’s philosophy is simply this:
A busy student is a happy student who has no time for getting into trouble!
All students are urged to become active in student government. Through the Heritage Student Government Federation, students have the opportunity to run for office, register and vote for candidates of their choice and gain a better understanding of the workings of the American political system. Each class elects officers to take care of class business, raise funds for various projects and plan class trips and get-togethers.
National Honor Society Induction, Graduations (5th, 8th and 12th), Homecoming, Valentine Coronation, Junior/Senior Social and The Purple & Gold (awards banquet) are favorite occasions for high-school students. These dress up affairs encourage the development of social skills and all students are urged to participate.
