Heritage College is a co-educational 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 initially established at its Narre Warren South campus in October 1999, opening as a primary school and expanding through to Year 8 in 2009.
In 2013, the transition of Years 7-12 to the site at Officer was completed. This meant the Narre Warren South Campus was Prep-Year 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.
In 2018 the college commenced the Multi-Purpose Centre at Officer campus.
In 2019, the Officer Campus held classes from Prep, right through to Year 12 for the first time. The planned Multi-Purpose Centre was officially opened to a Grand Opening Ceremony in August 2019.
In 2020, the college commenced two substantial building projects with the support of the Victorian State Government’s Building Grants program. An Early Learning Centre is due for delivery early 2021 at the Narre Warren South campus, and a significant Primary Upgrade is occurring at the Officer Campus, also due for delivery early 2021. These building projects will provide new Early Years services and expanded Primary learning spaces to meet the needs of a growing local community.

This includes Heritage College Family Church, a variety of lunchtime clubs, enrichment programs from Year 3 upwards, and involvement in local Arts and Sports programs.
