We are committed to a distinctly Christian education that provides an environment emphasizing the teaching and appreciation of God's Word as it applies to students' studies and to their character. We have a seminary-trained Bible teacher who instructs the students each week. Each lesson is exciting and age appropriate.
Teachers also integrate the Bible in subject areas as well as instill Christian-like behavior in all students by sharing a morning devotional and having classroom prayer time. Legacy's character education program also focuses on monthly character traits that are reinforced through Bible verses, role playing, and classroom activities.
Chapel occurs on Fridays. Students hear messages from our staff and quality local pastors according to the year’s theme. Themes have included "Following in the Footsteps of the Faithful”, "Celebrating God’s Promises”, "Searching for Wisdom as for Hidden Treasure”, "The Fruit of the Spirit”, "Who is God”, "Truth for Youth: A Study in Proverbs”, and "The Teachings of Jesus.” Classes gather together (Kindergarten-third grade at 8:45 a.m. and 4th-8th grade at 9:45 a.m.) for a time of singing worship songs, led by a talented group of musicians. Character awards are also given out to nominated students. Parents are welcome and encouraged to attend our chapel times.
Winter Camp is a time for the middle school students and staff to go away on a retreat for three days. It is designed to deepen relationships, make memories, and grow spiritually. Each day is packed full of teaching, singing, playing, and hanging with friends. Each year we go to Pinecrest Christian Center located near Lake Arrowhead. The theme of our camp is "Taste and See”, taken from Psalm 34:8, and our speaker encourages the students to experience the goodness of God.
Each Friday, the middle school students break into discipleship groups. These groups are designed to encourage spiritual growth and accountability. Boys and girls are separated and paired with a staff member, who leads discussion about how to apply the chapel message.
Students have various opportunities to show the love of Christ to others. We currently partner with The City of Santa Clarita, Children’s Hunger Fund, Operation Christmas Child, various disaster relief funds, The Michael Hoefflin Foundation, The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, Jump Rope for Heart.
