Heritage Academy is a co-ed private Christian school in Columbia, Missouri which employs the University-Model approach to education and is certified by the National Association of University-Model Schools (NAUMS).[1]

The University-Model approach seeks to combine the strengths of the home with professional instruction. It also provides a larger community for students that may be unavailable in a purely homeschooling environment. Students at Heritage Academy attend classes on campus from one to three days each week. On the other days, they complete assignments under the supervision of a parent or parents.


Heritage Academy is a K–12 school with a Fall 2010 enrollment of 115.[1] Students are grouped into three levels: Primary (K–2), Elementary (3–6) and Secondary (7–12).[2]


Athletic opportunities are provided for both boys and girls and typically involve basketball, soccer, and volleyball (girls).[3]


Currently, Heritage Academy is co-located with Calvary Baptist Church at 606 Ridgeway Avenue, Columbia, MO 65203,[4] although the school itself has no denominational affiliation (and has previously been located elsewhere).[5]
