WELCOME TO LEGACY ACADEMY
Here at Legacy Academy, it is our objective to provide a Christ centered education delivered with the excellence that our Lord and Savior, and your student, require. Through the parent/student/teacher triangle of learning, which honors Jesus Christ as the center of all things, we purpose to support and nurture each student’s God given skills, gifts and talents for His service. It is through the collaborative efforts of teachers, parents, and the student, that a love for lifelong learning is planted and cultivated. As a mother of three and lifelong educator, I understand firsthand the importance of parents as student’s first educators and the essential role they play in their student’s lifelong education. Legacy Academy is home to a dedicated, Christ centered staff who are eager to guide, encourage, and support you and your student. I look forward to taking this journey with you all. Thank you for choosing Legacy Academy!
Legacy Academy believes our task is set forth in Proverbs 22:6, “Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it.” Legacy Academy desires for each of its students to have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. We recognize the spiritual walk of a child is of utmost importance.
A child’s education is a partnership between the home, the church, and the school, with each playing a vital role in the upbringing of the child. For this partnership to be effective it is necessary for parents to live model Christian lives. We ask that parents and staff always be conscious of their critical role of instilling Christian principles into each student’s life.
Legacy Academy recognizes that education is a lifelong process. We encourage each of our students to seek higher educational opportunities after completing high school. Legacy Academy desires to prepare students to achieve academic excellence by providing a learning environment with a Christ-centered perspective. “Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity (1Timothy 4:2).”
In partnering with the child’s family and church, it is our role to prepare, train and equip its students with the spiritual, academic, emotional, physical and social tools to make a difference for God throughout their lives. Open channels of communications and involvement are extremely important for the total well-being of the student.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 states, “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.” As a discipleship school, we seek to build on the foundation of Jesus Christ and instill in students the ability to defend their faith, as well as their Lord and Master, when called upon to do so. Since we are a discipleship school, we acknowledge that Christian parents desire their children to be firmly grounded in God’s Word and in basic skills therefore, we require each family to be attending a Bible believing church. Every subject will be taught with the consciousness that all truth is God’s truth and that Jesus Christ is central in all learning and living. The ultimate goal is that students grow in relationship with Jesus and become conformed to the image of Jesus Christ (Rom. 8:29).
Legacy Academy seeks parents that share the same values, enthusiasm and love for learning and Jesus Christ that we do. We ask that if you wish to call Legacy Academy your child’s school, you support us fully in our beliefs, discipline, day to day practices and procedures. We believe the only way to successfully educate your child is to partner with you, the parent. If any disharmony exists between the school and the parent(s), the success of the student becomes at risk. The attitudes of both the parents and the student should be one of positive and enthusiastic support.

PARENT, STUDENT, TEACHER TRIANGLE
The triangle represents the importance of the parent, student, and teacher relationship. This relationship is the basis of a successful partnership between the school and home.
We expect our students to conduct themselves appropriately at their level of maturity. Students are expected to submit to authorities placed over them at the school and to be courteous and respectful in their speech and actions.
God has given parents the responsibility for the discipline of their children. Parents have conferred this authority on teachers and administrators during the school day and in school activities. Parents are responsible for training their children at home concerning appropriate behavior and conforming to the standards of the school. Parents should model behavior that demonstrates a respectful attitude toward school officials and students. Parents are expected to support the school guidelines in what is required of students.
Teachers have the authority and responsibility to manage their classroom. Teachers will make every effort to resolve issues in a loving and positive manner, designed to instruct, exhort, and restore the student. Teachers are expected to follow the curriculum in a timely manner, to evaluate student's work and interact with parents. Teachers will respect students and guide them in achieving their God-given potential.
