Friday Heritage Academy officially broke ground on its new $16 million school set to open in July.

The campus in Maricopa will be the fourth Heritage Academy to open in Arizona. The company has charter schools open in Laveen, Mesa and Queen Creek.

“Heritage Academy was the fourth charter issued in the state of Arizona in the very first year,” said Jared Taylor, chairman of the Heritage board and CEO. “We were one school for many years. We had so many people asking us to build in other places, and we always said no. We were happy just being one little school in downtown Mesa.”

He said when people started standing in line at 2 a.m. to enroll their children in the charter school, he said the Heritage board decided to rethink the idea of opening additional locations. Heritage opened location in Queen Creek and Laveen five years ago.
