ABOUT HERITAGE COLLEGE
Heritage College first opened its doors in 2016, offering our first program: the unique-in-Alberta Express Pharmacy Assistant diploma program. Since then, we have built upon our pharmacy training expertise, developed new programs in healthcare and business, and used our knowledge as teachers and instructors to instruct a new generation of medical and business leaders.
Many bright, ambitious students have passed through our doors since 2016, leaving a bit of themselves behind when they headed off to that first job or further education. We are proud of the institution they helped to build and that they continue to support. We are proud to serve our community, providing in-demand courses and education, and developing Calgary’s next generation of professionals.
At Heritage College, we are dedicated to empowering our students, providing them with the learning opportunities, support services and faculty engagement that enable them to complete their educational goals and realize their dreams.
Our mission is to be the Calgary region’s premier provider for hands-on career education by embodying our core values: a commitment to student success, strategic initiatives providing in-demand programs, and community collaborations that open new doors for our graduates
