I have had two sons graduate from Legacy Christian Academy. Both boys are now students at Baylor in the Pre-Med program. Their experience at Legacy was excellent! They attended from grammer school through High school. The teachers and staff are dedicated and committed and the school facilities are second to none. I have two more students still at Legacy, one a junior in high school and the other in seventh grade. I am thrilled with the education they are receiving and the emphasis on Christ centered values. A great school and well worth the investment to send my children there.
Had 2 kids going to Legacy. They are now in college and were totally unprepared for it. I wish I had saved the $20,000 for college instead. When academics is no different than anywhere else, and weaker than other private schools, you are better off saving the money for college. Kids didn't want to leave LCA because of the friends. Having bible classes does not make them Christian. The questions to ask is: are the students prepared for college, both academically and spiritually? The answer in NO. Save your money.
Although it has a good Christian environment, they ban your websites and spend tons of money on athletics... too many parent complaints removed advanced programs... I find PUBLIC SCHOOL better.
My three children have attending Legacy Christian Academy for the past 4 years and it has been the best investment into our children's Christian character. The teachers are sharing the gospel on a regular basis, and they are the highest quality of educators. My children have grown academically and spiritually.
I have two children that attend Legacy. This is our third year attending and I would HIGHLY recommend LCA to anyone. My son was in a Frisco Middle School prior to LCA and things were not going well at all. He was just a number and was labeled as someone he was not. We came to Legacy and his entire world changed. He is given the respect he deserves and there 'for the most part' gives it back. He has become an exceptational Christian, due in part by his teachings at LCA. The upper school principal is amazing with the kids and truly dedicated to his job. The athletic department has exceptional coaches and are great role models for the kids. The teachers, well they are wonderful too.
LCA has been a wonderful blessing to our family! This is our 6th year in the school and I have a middle school child and a high school child. When we joined the school, we changed the adults that our children were going to grow up to be. It is my honor and pleasure to begin seeing the fruit of that decision in my 17 year old. I recommend Legacy Christian Academy highly!!
I am a student at Legacy and have been attending the school for five years. The teachers are personable, they honestly have an interest in our well being and strive to help us succeed. Every day we learn more about ourselves as individuals and who we are in Christ. My walk with the Lord has been strengthened significantly since I have been at Legacy. I have attended three Christian schools in my life, and Legacy is by far the best school that i have attended. Legacy provides a strong Christian education that challenges both my academic intellect and my spiritual walk with my Lord and Savior.
Amazing school, absolutely incredible. Students are accepting, not stuck up like you would find at other schools. Run very smoothly, everyone there always has a smile on their face. Teachers are very kind, and are dedicated to fit the needs of your child. Academics are superb, as well as the arts and athletics. As a student at LCA, I am honored to go to such an outstanding school.
My children have attended Legacy for 7 years, but this will be our last. Our experience had been positive, but drastically changed in the last 2 years. The cost has become too great ($10k per child per year) and the rigid rules just too much to bear. New administration is too focused on conformity -- if your child is unique or has learning differences -- watch out. You will be pressured to medicate, even if that's not what's best for your child. We wanted to provide a Christian education for our children, but no longer believe in the leadership of the school. God made each child unique for His purpose, and we are sad to say that LCA does not recognize or celebrate those differences. When Jody Capehart was pushed out, the soul of the school went with her. We are seeking other options for our kids.
I was a teacher at LCA for a short time and I found the school to not have Christian values. I felt like that the administration was weak and did not portray the Christian values that they claimed. The school has a lot of growing pains to work through. Research thoroughly before joining!!!!
I have two boys who have attend LCA for three years. We love the school! We are reminded frequently why the education is worth the financial commitment.
I've gone to this school for a little over 5 years and I've found that the teachers give 100% effort in trying to reach out to their students and trying to be a great example of Christ. Our Fine Arts program is a very strong community through the leadership of the faculty. The admistration however are the more wealthy people who are making decisions for this school.
As an early elementary parent, I do not find the academics particularly agressive. However, the overall values of the school are beneficial to each child as they're learning. The principal and vice-principal seem to struggle to find appropriate discipline standards for early elementary students, especially the boys. Sometimes the 'conform or leave' attitude is a lot to handle. Overall I'm impressed with the future that LCA offers to the students but there are still kinks in the system. A headmaster without a doctorate is one of them, combined with teachers that could be more specialized in early childhood education. I frequently find teachers with frowns, that seem extremely strict in demeanor. However, the parents at the school are absolutely sweet, tolerant and wonderful. The administration struggles to be accountable to the parents of the school however, it stil beats the secular morals of public school.
Classical education at its best. Classes are geared to challenge students in all subjects. Discipline issues are handled swiftly and appropriately. The High School is still incurring growing pains with teacher turnover and athletic opportunities.
For the most part an excellent school - at least pre k - 8th. The highschool doesn't have the classes and opportunities available at a larger public school. The school is not well recognized by colleges for academics or athletics. The big downside is the ever increasing tuition (approved by the wealthy board members) and added costs for all extra activities. The fundraisers seem endless with expected participation. High parental involvement expected. They seem to be weeding out the good average income Christian families due to high tuition increases each year. Its turning into a school for the rich. How Christian is that?
School is very professionally run with helpful staff who make sure you are given individual attention. Our son's Kindegarten teacher has been a Godsend.
LCA is a wonderful school for any child. Teachers are truly interested in the overall academic achievement as well as a child's growth with God. They do a fantastic job of preparing students for a rigorous college advancement. We have been extremely happy with all school experiences - academic, extra-cirricular, social, and spiritual.
Legacy is a Classical Christian School and has a challenging curriculum all based on the bible. My daughter is in Kindergarten and has classes in Spanish, music, computers and art. She reads at the third grade level and her teacher has worked with us to keep her challenged. There are a lot of opportunites to volunteer and the parental support is excellent. Our favorite part of Legacy is the Christ centered environment where children are loved, nutured and taught to walk in His ways.
This school is one of the best in my opinion. You'll never find better people for your child to be with, or a better accademic system.
I think it is a wonderful school. The students learn alot and most of the teachers are wonderful. It is still in a growing stage and can still be a little ruff on the edges, but it is good for even that. The High school just won district in Academic form of TAPPS and second in art.
