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 4:12).”
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.
