Educating the mind without educating the heart is no education at all.


We foster an environment where all students can love and serve Christ.  We help them tap into their greatness and use it to positively impact their communities. Additionally, our Parent University which provides free quarterly workshops and seminars, gives parents helpful tools to aid in their child's academic success.  We are called to minister to families, and are committed to making this world a better place, one family at a time. 

Welcome to Heritage Leadership Academy!

Heritage Leadership Academy will engage the whole child: hands, heart and head; awaken the leader in every student; and empower learners to find and articulately express their voice to provoke change for the good. We will also promote high-levels of academic achievement utilizing a rigorous, standards-based, interdisciplinary curriculum that is infused with the arts. 


Heritage Leadership Academy aspires to be at the forefront of Christian education in the Chicagoland area by maintaining a community of forever learning, innovative teachers; attracting students from diverse backgrounds with a common desire to excel; and providing outstanding resources and facilities.
