Heritage Classical Academy (HCA) is a proposed tuition-free public charter school with plans to open in the fall of 2024, and will be located in the 77092 zip code of Houston, Texas. The school plans to open with grades K-1 in its first year and grow into a full K-8 classical school by adding a new grade every year.
HCA is a unique option for families looking for a free public school alternative that can deliver academic vigor, a focus on character formation and leadership, and the development of public speaking, debate, and logic skills. Children at HCA are introduced to language mastery from a young age, learning Latin and Greek prefixes K through 5th grade and beginning formal Latin in the 6th grade.
