The Legacy Educational Philosophy
Legacy Christian Academy strives to build a strong academic and spiritual foundation in the lives of students. The core academic program focuses on language arts, mathematics, science, social studies, and technology. Secondarily, we provide broad and enriched instruction in the arts, including visual arts, music, and foreign language. Students are challenged to excel in every aspect of their education so as to develop their God-given abilities and talents and become effective communicators, critical thinkers, active learners, and community servants.
Legacy provides this comprehensive education within a Christian environment. Our school upholds a distinctly Christian worldview, yet we remain independent of a church or denomination. We operate from the principles and ethics that are found in the Bible and the conservative, traditional values that our country was founded upon. We strive to honor Jesus Christ in our curriculum and instruction. All faiths are welcome at Legacy Christian Academy. Legacy admits students of any race, creed, religion, and national or ethnic origin.
Legacy promotes a family-oriented school environment. We are a partnership of faculty and families working together to nurture and develop confident, kind, diligent, and responsible students. Legacy believes that parents and the church should be the primary spiritual influences in a child's life. Our school provides a safe environment that complements and enriches spiritual development through our Bible curriculum and character education program.
Highest Quality Instruction
Legacy is committed to academic instruction of the highest quality. We employ teachers who not only uphold a Christian worldview and possess necessary degrees and credentials, but who also have a love and enthusiasm for teaching. We strive to compensate these teachers with a rate of pay comparable to the public school system in order to retain them for long-term service.
Legacy believes strongly in protecting the learning environment of the classroom. Each teacher provides a classroom management system that is clearly defined and positive. To enable optimal learning, Legacy maintains high standards for behavior. Disruptive behavior can be a deterrent to educational goals and is not tolerated in classrooms. Students thrive in Legacy's safe, orderly, and productive environment.
