Dr. Mary Polite, Head of School
In describing the typical student at Heritage Academy, head of school, Mary Polite said, "These kids just have a different lens on the world. I think it's wonderful to give a child that opportunity for parents who can do that," Polite explained. Students come to the academy from all over the world. Twenty-seven countries and 17 states are represented. "They are doing things that I am in awe of. Could I, as an eighth grader, have gone to China and been the best player for my country in golf? Nope," Polite said with a laugh. "Our middle school is first in the region to use the model we're using, a multi-age interdisciplinary curriculum," Polite said.
