Why Oklahoma City
Heritage Hall is located in northwest Oklahoma City. Unlike any other city in the world, Oklahoma City was born in a single day at the sound of a gunshot, settled by a historic land run. Angelo Scott, a journalist who staked his claim in the run, wrote at the time about the spirit of the city, saying it has "an attitude that all things are possible if people are willing to take a chance and embrace the future without hesitation or reservation."
That same spirit lives today as the city undergoes a renaissance. Public and private partnerships over the last 10 years have dramatically transformed the face of the city, staking a claim for the future as a pre-eminent American city.
Consistently listed among the most affordable major metropolitan areas, Oklahoma City offers everything you look for in a modern metropolitan community – an abundance of the arts, quality health care, excellence in education, and more. And it does so without high costs, energy shortages, smog, or traffic congestion.
Heritage Hall is a co-educational college preparatory school in Oklahoma City. As one of the few secular private schools in the state, we offer a challenging academic curriculum for students from preschool through grade 12, as well as unique leadership opportunities, a wide spectrum of athletics, and a well developed fine arts program.
