Legacy Academy is the classroom drop-off program for grades K-6. Students are organized into homeroom classes led by experienced homeroom teachers. School is in session Mon-Thurs, 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. with the option of 2-day attendance on Tuesday and Thursday.
Legacy students benefit from small class sizes and individualized support. There are typically around 15-20 students in each homeroom led by 1 or 2 experienced teachers. Legacy teachers know each student, their family, and their individual needs.
The curriculum is centered on the development of the whole child using these specific approaches:
Character Development: In the Who I Really Am program, students learn foundational principles through animal guides who teach symbolically through story, music, scriptures, and personal application.
Language Arts: For levels K-6, Legacy uses The Good and The Beautiful as the primary curriculum. We encourage outside reading to develop a love of learning. Through reading and studying uplifting literature, students are encouraged to develop a love for all things “virtuous, lovely, of good report, or praiseworthy."
Math: Legacy uses The Good and the Beautiful math for levels K-6. Older or more advanced students will have the option of using an online math program such as CTC Math with support from a mentor. In both language arts and math, students may progress at their own pace if a plan between teachers and parents is in place to support the child.
Science and History: Students are taught to see the wonder of science, God's hand in the founding of America, and world history alongside scriptural history.
Electives: Students also have a daily elective such as art, music, theatre, or PE. For a la carte pricing on electives, please contact us.
Projects and Special Events: Each term students participate in project-based learning, culminating in learning fairs such as the living history fair, business fair, life skills fair, and science fair.
