Tuition and Discounts
Tuition and Fees for the Legacy Academy Preschool Program are $150.00 per student, per week. This amount includes child care hours from 7:00am to 6:00pm, Monday through Friday, in a safe, secured facility and grounds monitored 24/7 by cameras at strategic locations in and outside of the building. The entrance gates are buzz-in and key-fob accessed, and the yard is surrounded by a 6-foot security fence. In addition, a professionally trained security guard will be on-site during school hours.
The tuition includes the services of CYFD-licensed professional teachers and staff well versed in the Association of Christian Teachers and Schools (ACTS) accredited early childhood curriculum. We utilize the Abeka curriculum throughout the school year and the award winning “Learning without Tears” during the summer months. This curriculum is designed to successfully transition your child from the pre-school years to elementary school, starting with kindergarten at Legacy Academy.
Legacy Academy and the Preschool Program recognize the parent’s cost of commitment to a quality, Christ-focused education. Because of this commitment, we are extending our multi-child discount to parents who have a student enrolled in Legacy Academy and want to enroll a student in the Preschool Program. More details of this discount are listed in the registration packet on RenWeb.
