Children at Heritage Mission learn more than academics. Heritage Mission students experience spiritual training, academic opportunity and love through a variety of activities:
- Community involvement
- Music and drama programs
- Summer Bible camps
- Summer school
- Church involvement
- Other extracurricular activities
Community outreach programs have included violin performances at nursing homes, the FAME Festival, and the Festival of Trees. Children are socially involved in the community by attending local events such as festivals, parades, and concerts.
Musical instruction helps children develop discipline, appreciation for the arts, confidence and satisfaction through achievement, and cognitive abilities that translate into better academic skills. Children receive instruction from a staff member and from volunteers, and may include lessons such as piano, singing, or handbells.
Heritage Mission students have, in general, not been exposed to traditional outlets that teach life skills. The children's lives are enriched through various extracurricular activities including:
- Junior Achievement
By living in a family environment, the children learn to do daily chores including cooking, cleaning, lawn care, and maintenance. Students learn skills to help others and prepare them for their future lives.
