What our parents are saying

PROUD PARENT - La Habra Heights Preschool & Infant Center

HCS is the only way to go. Not only are all of the teachers and staff passionate about children and their education, but they pour Christ into them every single day. Being a working parent it’s difficult to find a situation where you feel that your kids are receiving quality care, but at Heights, I know my children are safe, loved, and receiving Jesus on a daily basis.

The teachers are amazing. Thank you for all you do. We also like the Friendzy program explicitly teaching children emotional and social skills.

Michelle K.

PROUD PARENT - Brea Preschool and Infant Center

I wanted a Bible based education for my children and an environment where my children saw God's word and love on a daily basis. Additionally, I wanted a school were rigor that was comparable to the high performing schools in the surrounding years. Heights meets all of my requirements and I'm very happy with our choice to attend here.

Without a doubt, the importance of a Christian worldview and education was a deciding factor in our decision to enroll at Heights. During Covid-19 safety was a priority but so was recognizing that students needed to be in a classroom and moving toward a normal school experience sooner than later.

And that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 2 Timothy 3:15

Why Heights Christian School for Your Child?

While a private education is not cheap, Heights Christian Schools educates students for far less than the $12,000-$16,000 per year that California public schools spend educating students. For many families, tuition is a sacrifice but, at the same time, it is an incredible investment in your most precious asset-your child.

Why Parents Made the Switch from Public to Private School During COVID-19 - Heights Christian Schools

Until Covid-19, many families in the U.S. ruled out private-school education for their children because of the cost. Yet as the coronavirus raged on, parents increasingly sought out schools that were fully in-person rather than remote — and, for many, that meant switching to an independent institution, regardless of price tag.


During the outbreak in March 2020, when the original Shelter in Place orders were issued, Heights Christian Schools was able to finish the school year successfully and continue to provide excellent academic instruction to over 2,000 students. Emergency childcare was available for first responders, health professionals and essential service providers on many of the HCS campuses, and all preschool families enjoyed At-Home Activity Ideas for their little ones while not on campus.

Kindergarten today can easily be described as busy, fast, and rigorous.    Kindergarten students are expected to master concepts in math, reading, language, science, and social studies.  If that isn’t enough, schools are also tasked with making sure that each child is on the path to well-roundedness with exposure to the arts, music, foreign language, athletics, and technology. 


Jodie Whittemore, Director of Curriculum and Instruction at Heights Christian Schools details the factors that determine kindergarten readiness.
