About Us

Grades Taught

K - Gr.12


Heritage Christian Academy (HCA) is a K-12 school located in NE Calgary with approximately 700 students representing over 125 Christian Churches.


HCA is a safe place for students to discover what they believe. We welcome the tough questions and engage in real conversations - both in and out of the classroom. We provide excellence in academics, leadership opportunities, and everyday interactions with a biblical worldview.

We believe that experiences in missions, music, athletics, leadership, retreats, and field trips provide life-long memories. It is an opportunity for students to belong to a community built on trust, integrity, and respect.

HCA is a place for students to understand their identity in Christ and to become all that God created them to be. Many alumni have shared that their time at HCA equipped them well for Post-Secondary education and meaningful careers. Our current students are given many opportunities to put their gifts, talents, and leadership skills to use in the school and within the community.


Heritage Christian Education Society Calgary (HCESC) operates in partnership with Palliser School Division as a Faith-based Alternative Program. We are members of the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and the Canadian Council for Christian Charities (CCCC).


Equipping Students For Life


Equipping students for life through quality Christian education that inspires commitment to Jesus Christ, academic excellence, Christlike character, and service to others.


Through God’s grace, in the next 5 years, HCA will foster a culture of Christian Discipleship that captures the heart and mind of all students, delivered through Biblical curriculum, authentic community, and missional opportunities. HCA will be a school where innovative ministry and academic programs are delivered in a modernized facility with intentional space to cultivate community and inspire academic excellence.

  1. We believe the Bible to be the inspired and only infallible, authoritative, written word of God.  2 Timothy 3:16-17

  4. We believe in the true deity and true humanity of our Lord Jesus Christ, His pre-existence, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death through His shed blood, His bodily resurrection, His Ascension to the right hand of the Father, and His future visible return in power and glory. Colossians 1:13-20; John 1:14
