What’s So Special About American Heritage Academy

American Heritage Academy (AHA) is a non-profit 501-C-3 public charter school that was founded in 1995 by a group of “home-school” parents. It received its charter from the State of Arizona to educate students in traditional basics, with emphasis on the great role models of the past. Concerned about the lack of statesmen, conservation of America’s freedoms and classically trained leaders, AHA was formed to “build tomorrow’s heroes today.” Students come to have a knowledge of and respect for the ideals and values of the great men and women of history, particularly our founding fathers.

American Heritage Academy's Cottonwood campus serves K-12 and our Camp Verde campus serves K-8.

AHA is a Testing Site for PSAT, SAT and ACT

American Heritage Academy (AHA) is a testing center to its own students and is open to testing all home school students and other public school students who wish to do so. For more information visit American Heritage Academy's PSAT/NMSQT Website.
