We are each children of God, created in the image of Heavenly Parents, endowed with divine identity and purpose. “All are alike unto God,” with inherent dignity, deserving not only respect, but charity, the pure love of Christ and highest form of love. The divinely designed diversity of the human family enriches the educational experience for all while strengthening our interdependence and unity.
Our work is to help each individual realize their divine potential in a learning community where we are “no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints,” knit together in unity and love.
American Heritage School does not discriminate against any employee, student, employee applicant, or student applicant because of race, creed, color, religion, sex, age, national origin, physical and/or mental disability. American Heritage School adheres to this non-discrimination policy with respect to all of its policies and programs, including educational programs, employment and admission programs, scholarship and financial aid programs, and athletic and other school-administered programs.
In keeping with the school’s religious orientation and purpose, as well as with the school’s desire to respect the dignity and diversity of individuals, the school affords equal opportunity in employment and admission on the basis of sexual orientation, but not on the basis of conduct.
All members of the school community are required to comply with the American Heritage School Honor Code, which requires chastity outside of marriage, and fidelity in marriage, as further defined in The Family, A Proclamation to the World (“The Family Proclamation”), issued by The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.
The school affirms the centrality of doctrines in The Family Proclamation relating to human sexuality and gender, as well as the sanctity and significance of marriage as the union of a man and a woman. The school, as is permitted by accreditation standards and regulations, prefers faithful members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in employment.
American Heritage School also affirms that all people are equally beloved children of God and deserve to be treated with love and respect, and we recognize the critical importance of a safe campus environment for all students and employees.
