The Difference

What makes Heritage Academy different?

Heritage Academy utilizes the Schoolwide Enrichment Model (SEM) created by Dr. Joseph Renzulli and Dr. Sally Reis of the University of Connecticut. This is a research supported model with 30 years of experience.

"Research on the SEM suggests that the model is effective at serving high-ability students in a variety of educational settings and in schools serving diverse ethnic and socioeconomic populations. These studies also suggest that the pedagogy of the SEM can be applied to various content areas resulting in higher achievement when implemented in a wide variety of settings, and when used with diverse populations of students included high ability students with learning disabilities and underachievers."
