Heritage College is a co-educational institution operated by the Seventh-day Adventist Church, as part of its world-wide system of Christian Schools. It is open to any student who wishes to study and learn within a Christian environment.
Heritage College was established on its current site in Narre Warren South in October 1999. It initially opened as a primary school and expanded through to Year 8 in 2009.
In 2013, the transition of Year 7-12 to the site at Officer was completed. This meant the Narre Warren South Campus was P-6, while the Officer Campus housed Years 7-12, and also Prep which was introduced in 2013 with an additional primary year added each calendar year. The Officer Campus will complete its transition to Prep-Year 12 in 2019.
