Our Core Values


This is our prayer for every student. 

“And this I pray, that your love may abound yet more and more in knowledge and in all judgment; That you may approve (select) things that are excellent; that you may be sincere and without offense until the day of Christ.”

Philippians 1:9 - 10

Mission Statement

Heritage Baptist Academy, in dependence upon the Lord and in partnership with parents, will teach students to imitate Christ and value learning.

Our emphasis that students will learn to “imitate Christ” and “value learning” simply echoes God’s desire set forth in the above verses. Believers follow Christ by imitating God’s heart (a “love that may abound”). The value of knowledge (learning truth) and judgment (learning to make righteous decisions) increases the blessings to a believer’s eternal joy.

Vision Statements

  • Provide Christian families in the greater Memphis area with the opportunity for an excellent Christian school for their children in preschool and elementary grades.

  • Prepare students for the rigors of middle and high school.

  • Cultivate a living testimony that will influence others to the beauty of Jesus Christ.

  • Promote the priority that the greatest responsibility of life is to conduct one's self in a manner that exalts the cause of Christ.
