With more than 88 student-run clubs, as well as the schools’ pre-professional program partnerships with local hospitals and nonprofit organizations, the philanthropic desire to help others locally and globally is at the heart of everything the students, families, faculty and administrators do at American Heritage. Every year, fundraising goals are surpassed, and there is no limit to what can be accomplished.

“At American Heritage Schools, compassion is one of our main pillars and is demonstrated through numerous community involvement and service initiatives that help better our campuses and the world,” said Dr. Douglas Laurie, president of American Heritage Schools. “In addition to this recognition for our corporate philanthropy, I am proud of our students, faculty and administration for their unwavering commitment to giving back both inside and outside of the classroom through partnerships with hospitals and nonprofit organizations throughout the South Florida community.”

American Heritage Schools was also ranked as the No. 1 Private School and the No. 24 Largest Employer in South Florida in the “Book of Lists” rankings.
