In March, 1969, a group of local parents came together and decided to establish an independent school in Newnan, Georgia. Just eight months later, on October 7, 1969, the State of Georgia granted a charter to “The Heritage School, Incorporated.”
Mrs. Katie Arnall Freeman donated 73 acres of land on Highway 29 to the trustees of The Heritage School in early 1970 as a site for the School. Shortly thereafter, the trustees named George H. Keller, Jr. as first Headmaster.
The Heritage School opened its doors to 134 students in September 1970, serving Grades One through Eight. There were eleven teachers.
In 1973, Grades Nine and Ten were added, along with a gymnasium. During the next three years, The Heritage School added Kindergarten and Grades Eleven and Twelve.
Since graduating its first class in 1975, the School has grown deliberately but steadily, evolving both its campus and its curriculum with local, national, and global best practices in teaching and learning.
