Heritage Christian Schools are a large part of who KCCS is and what KCCS does.
“Providing Quality Education with Christian Values”
Building Beyond Borders partners with Heritage Christian Schools to make a difference locally and globally by sending teams and providing education from K-12. Heritage Christian Schools sponsor 30 of our kids in Kenya by providing for their education.
Teaching our children to be aware of local community needs and global cultural differences, as well as providing opportunity to make a difference, matters. Taking the incredible gift of education and seeding it into other nations and working with global partnerships to educate – is who we are.
The Global Citizenship Program
With the advent of internet and the growth of a global economy, it is required that everyone participate in cross-cultural and international relations. Essentially, this is what is meant by “Global Citizenship”. We have the good news that we want to share beyond our local contexts to the utter most parts of the earth. As never before in history, it is now possible to see this global vision made manifest.
Global Citizenship Program (GCP) is a six week educational odyssey that uses the excitement of international travel to increase the learning potential in various academic, cultural, and discipleship courses.
The vision of GCP has remained constant: "Changing the world one student at a time." GCP changes students; stretching the limits of their compassion, and developing them into leaders who will shape our world.
By living in a close and accountable Christian community, students have opportunity for profound personal growth. Students return from the GCP more socially and spiritually mature. They become invested in people.
This transformational program allows students to finish their education in an integrated and intensive nature that means they can complete more credits in a reduced amount of time. In addition to academic and cultural development, students serve underprivileged children in Mexico, which often inspires a life-long commitment to volunteerism and missions.

Heritage Christian School - Missions Fundraising
The staff and students of Heritage Christian School are committed to missions! For the last 3 years, their focus has been to support KCC missionaries, Larry and Francine Carruthers in Kitale, Kenya. In 2012, they raised money to shave off their Principal, Mr. Cox’s, beard and mustache. Then, on Nov. 23rd, staff and students gathered in the gym clad in various shapes and styles of mustaches to hear that they had raised $765.00 dollars! Students cheered as Mr. Cox received his shave.
In 2013, HCS helped Larry and Francine buy shoes for the orphans of “Out of Ashes” for Christmas. They chose a “Wacky Shoe Day” theme and raised money so that all the teachers would have to participate in a Wacky Shoe Fashion Show. Much fun and laughter took place in the gym that day as it was announced that $980.00 dollars was raised.
HCS decided to go GAGA for GLASSES in 2014 to help Larry and Francine get prescription glasses for the people who seek treatment at their medical clinics. This year, the teachers had to dress in crazy costumes and glasses to the enjoyment of their students. Staff and students brought in old glasses in addition to raising $1,745.00 dollars.
Every year they have surpassed the amount raised the year before. Please consider helping them in their next, 2015 Kitale Fundraiser, which will take place in November.
