Heritage Christian School is a new school in Northridge, California, with a prestigious legacy. It was created in July 2012 by the acquisition of Los Angeles Baptist Middle School/High School by Hillcrest Christian School. HCS offers young people a challenging college preparatory education, interwoven with Judeo-Christian religious and spiritual values. HCS believes that in order for students to develop their greatest potential, the formative school years (TK-12) should be directed toward an understanding of the love of God, a love for fellow human beings, and a love of knowledge. HCS fosters a nurturing environment in which students’ spiritual, intellectual, physical, social and artistic abilities can grow and expand.
