Who We Are

A seed, through patience, increases in value and becomes a tree;

But this is almost impossible without the right environment. In the same way, young people are like seeds who will blossom into great adults and people of influence tomorrow if they are nurtured in the right environment. Heritage International Leadership Academy was founded based on this ideal.


Students who attend Heritage International receive a well rounded education that not only provides high quality instruction but also experiences that teach them how to work with others, how to be productive and upstanding citizens and how to be active contributors to the society around them.


Our goal is to break the glass ceiling of education in Liberia. We aim to be pacesetters and redefine what is possible by setting the bar high. We will do this by providing opportunities for our young professionals to develop an unquenchable thirst for knowledge and use the lessons learned for greater good.


We seek to raise our students to be God-fearing leaders, self-advocates, and astute citizens. We will achieve this goal by working in partnership with parents, placing an emphasis on life skill character development, and maintaining an overall commitment to the long-term development of our students.

Our Vision

A distinctive international school in Liberia that equips children with the quality education, professional and social skills required to compete and succeed at the global level.

Heritage International Leadership Academy strives to implement a system of learning that will enhance the quality of education provided to our students and prepare them to acquire the education and skills necessary to compete and succeed from a global perspective. Fostering a learning culture that champions our community, responsibility, productivity, and a desire for higher expectations & learning, we will:

  • Achieve at a high level academically
