American Heritage Charter Schools to Launch New Charter School for Grades 6-8

Heritage Digital Academy Charter Middle School Grand Opening Ceremonies Set for September 26

The American Heritage family of Charter Schools is pleased to announce the opening of its newest school, Heritage Digital Academy Charter Middle School (HDAMS), 2255 East Valley Parkway in Escondido, which started classes September 3, 2013.  Grand opening ceremonies will be held on Thursday, September 26, 1:30 – 2:15 p.m. in the gymnasium followed by refreshments and tours 2:15 – 3:30 p.m.  (HDAMS is located one block east on East Valley Parkway from Escondido Charter High School.)

“We’re excited to have received this charter from the State of California for HDAMS, which enables us to offer our parents another outstanding school of choice,” remarked Dennis “Coach” Snyder, Executive Director of the American Heritage family of Charter Schools.

Heritage Digital Academy was first established in 2004.  In response to parent demand, it started as an independent study program for grades 6-8 and now features a blended (direct instruction and computer technology) full day learning model. The program has grown from 90 to over 300 students in recent years.

Escondido Charter High School, the first American Heritage Charter School to be founded, also launched Heritage Digital Academy High School which currently serves grades 9-10.

Members of the community are cordially invited to attend HDAMS’ Grand Opening ceremonies.
