Other Information: Heritage Christian Academy has been inspiring commitment to Jesus Christ and promoting excellence in our students since 1979. We educate approximately 500 students, approximately 10% of whom are special education, from about 270 families representing over 75 Christian churches from all quadrants of Calgary. Our 55,000 square foot facility is located on 9 acres of land on McKnight Boulevard, directly southeast of the Calgary International Airport. Heritage is accredited by Alberta Education. Heritage is proud to have joined with the Palliser Regional School District as a Christian Alternative School. We also are members of the Association of Christian Schools International. In addition, every Heritage teacher is certified by Alberta Education and a member of the Alberta Teachers Association. Like our student population, our teachers represent many Christian churches, where they are active members. Located in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, a major city of 1 million residents, Heritage offers an exciting opportunity for students seeking a Christian education in English. Calgary is best known for its annual Calgary Stampede, one of North America's greatest yearly attractions. Located on the broad expanse of the Canadian prairie, the city sits only a 1.5 hour drive to the famous Banff National Park in the beautiful Canadian Rockies. World-class recreation and leisure activities abound, such as camping, hiking, skiing/snowboarding, canoeing or simply touring by car. Due to warm coastal winter winds, the city enjoys a moderate winter climate. Even when arctic winter temperatures plunge the city into a deep freeze, the sun shines brightly in a crystalline blue sky. We welcome international students whose parents do not reside in Canada in Grades 10, 11 and 12. Generally, students begin their studies at Heritage in Grade 10 when Grade 9 studies in the home country are complete. We have two categories of international students: Category 1 Students Have studied at least two years with English as the language of instruction for all or most subjects, and, Have achieved at least 70% in all subjects. International students who come from an English speaking country are considered Category 1. Category 2 Students Have studied English as a second language for at least 4 years but where English has not been the language of instruction for the majority of subjects. Have achieved at least 80% in all subjects, except for mathematics, which requires a minimum grade of 75%. Select this paragraph to begin editing the text in the properties panel. All international students must meet all other admission requirements. Heritage does not have boarding facilities, but will assist families to make home-stay arrangements. We will put you in touch with prospective home-stay families, but will not determine the suitability of the home-stay family on behalf of prospective students' parents. The cost for home-stay varies, generally between $550 and $650CDN/month. We require that international students stay with an English speaking family who meets the school's admission requirements.
