Become a teacher at Heritage

We are very excited that you are interested in teaching at Heritage. Teachers are an integral part of the Heritage family.  Before you submit your proposal, please read all of the information below.


Who we are

Heritage was established with the purpose to provide access to Christian academic instruction in accordance with New Testament scriptures and to provide support to the local homeschool community.  Heritage has about 250 families with students from nursery to 12th grade. Our classes are held on Mondays between September and June at Westminster Chapel in Bellevue.


Our teachers

For the teachers, the board, and others that serve here, Heritage is a ministry to homeschool families. We hope you’ll join us because you are passionate about teaching and fulfilling a personal mission to serve families. Although we have grown a great deal since our start in 2003, we strive for a small, family atmosphere where people care and take time for each other. We hope our teachers engage this way as well. You will be asked to sign a document acknowledging that all class instruction will comply with Heritage’s Purpose, Statement of Faith, Mission Statement, and Handbook.  Instructors will be expected to comply with all policies and guidelines of Heritage.  Please take time to review these documents


Our classes

Our classes are held on Mondays between September and June at Westminster Chapel in Bellevue. Our first period classes begin at 9:00 am with our fifth period classes finishing at 3:10pm. Each class is offered for the full school year. Our class sizes range from as few as 2 or 3 students to 25, with an average number of 12 students.

To submit a class you will need a class title, a description, bio and worldview statement, and you will need to determine the monthly tuition fee and one time materials fee you would like to charge.  Also include in the proposal any prerequisites for your class, textbooks to purchase, or other information the parents might need. Tuition charged is typically $15 to $30 each month, please keep in mind that this is a ministry when choosing the monthly cost for your class.


To help create a consistent schedule and class offerings, classes are generally offered for the following age/grade groups:  

High School - 9-12 grades

Middle School - 6-8 grades

Upper Elementary - 3-5 grades

Early Elementary - Kindergarten-  2 grade

Preschool - ages 3-5


High school-level courses typically have a smaller number of students. We will prioritize scheduling certain classes that may be required for graduation according to the rotation in the Handbook.  We also have some classes that run for 90 minutes and are held either during first hour, pre- or post-lunch or during fifth hour allowing the extra time to be made up before and after classes or during the lunch break. High school-level teachers must have a syllabus developed prior to the first day of classes, and hopefully by the March Teacher/Class fair.
