Mission It is the mission of Heritage Hall to inspire in each child the curiosity to learn, the self-confidence to lead, and the compassion to serve.
In the fall of 1969 – a mere six weeks after conceiving the idea of establishing a new school – our founding fathers launched Heritage Hall with 142 students in grades 8-11 in the Sunday school rooms at All Souls Episcopal church. Thanks to the endorsement of Father Shaw, to the determination of visionary parents, and to the commitment of those seminal teachers and administrators, Heritage Hall thrived during its first year, enrolling new students every month and attaining a closing enrollment of 232 students. News of the School’s success spread, and additional teachers were hired to accommodate the growing student body. When the first senior class graduated in 1971, the school was 414 students strong in grades 7-12. Within five years, Heritage Hall’s enrollment had ballooned to 700 students in grades K-12, requiring additional leased space at First Christian Church and Belle Isle community Church. Land on NW 115th Street, between Penn and Western, was acquired in 1974 and all three divisions were finally consolidated on our current campus in January of 1978, when the new Lower School facility opened.
For the past 44 years, Heritage Hall has flourished thanks to an industrious faculty and an active parent body, who participate as partners in their children’s education. The most visible changes from the early years include a handsome and extensive physical plant as well as more numerous and rigorous academic programs from preschool through twelfth grade. The Heritage Hall community closely reflects the population of Oklahoma City: without external grants and at our own expense, we actively seek students and teachers who will enrich our school with the diversity of their racial, cultural, and socio-economic heritages. This past year, 870 students from more than 50 zip codes attended classes in the safe and supportive environment of a park-like, 102-acre campus. Our 112-member class of 2013 included 5 National Merit Scholars, achieved 100% graduation rate, and received acceptance letters to 93 universities. Like Oklahoma City itself, Heritage Hall has come a long way since its inception.
