The Heritage School
The Heritage School: More Efficient and Effective Thanks to Financial Edge NXT
Founded in 1970, The Heritage School is a co-educational, independent day school in Newnan, Georgia, serving pre-kindergarten through twelfth grade students and families from diverse communities. The school’s mission is to develop the mind through a full range of rigorous academics; to develop the body through competition and teamwork; to develop the spirit through self-awareness and growth; and to develop camaraderie through shared experiences.
Neal Pike came on board as The Heritage School’s chief financial officer in June 2016. When he joined, The Heritage School team was using Financial Edge. Based on his previous K–12 experience, Neal had already made the transition from Financial Edge to Financial Edge NXT once before. He knew The Heritage School would greatly benefit from the user friendly interface, mobile platform, and innovative look and feel that Financial Edge NXT provided. Neal approached the school’s board and made the case for upgrading their software, stating that it was an efficient move because the school’s Registrar and Admissions office were already in the process of transitioning to Blackbaud’s Smart Tuition and On Products.
