Mission Statement:

Our school’s purpose is to provide an educational environment where students in Grades 1 – 12 are excited about learning and can discover and meet their full potential, while studying at their own rate on an enriched curriculum. We provide a safe and comfortable learning environment where students can develop good study skills, enhance their emotional intelligence and build their self-confidence.

Our mission is to provide each student with the support they deserve to enable them to reach their full academic potential. By promoting the values of honesty, perseverance, and respect, Heritage Academy fosters acceptance and growth among our students.

Philosophy/Belief Statement:

One of the most important facets of our school is that our student to teacher ratio, which is set at a maximum of 12:1, ensures that each student receives the necessary guidance to overcome challenges in the provincial curriculum. Teachers at Heritage are able to customize their lesson plans to suit the individual needs of all students.

At this time there are very few schools that offer educational services such as those at Heritage Academy. In addition, we are the only school in Ottawa that exclusively offers the Simultaneous Multisensory Teaching (S.M.T.) program and techniques to students who require assistance in both reading and writing.

School History:

Established in 1989, Heritage Academy is an Ottawa not-for-profit private school specifically designed for students with Dyslexia and other language based exceptionalities. Our specialized environments and smaller class sizes also prove effective for students with ADD/ADHD and similar attention-based exceptionalities. Heritage Academy accepts students from all provinces in Canada as well as International Students.
