My family and I are going into our 4th year at Legacy, and we have never been happier. Our kids love this school and the teachers. The Christian values that the school and staff portray regularly, allows my kids to experience a safe, loving environment outside our home. As a parent, I love how all parts of the school are involved with each other. The high school kids come down and mentor the lower school kids. Football games are a whole school event that gets my kids excited. Our whole family has made lasting friendships. Legacy is a community. The staff are amazing at communication and are honest. I feel the teachers have flexibility that allows them to teach to individual children based on their needs. I also felt they did an amazing job at navigating the COVID situation. The school quickly had a plan in place that allowed our kids to have a smooth transition into distance learning. Most importantly, through God's love, our children are getting an amazing Christian education.

Legacy Christian Academy has been the biggest blessing to our family. We immediately felt part of the LCA community. Everyone is so welcoming! The academics are challenging for our children. The staff and teachers have the biggest servant hearts and genuinely love our children. LCA is a true blessing!

We absolutely love LCA! Our kids are challenged while keeping a focus on the well rounded educational experience keeping Christ first. They live by their promise to know and love our children. The LCA community has been just as valuable for our family unit as it has been for our kids individually. We joined when our girls were in 2nd and 6th grade. My only regret is not moving to Legacy sooner!

Legacy Christian Academy has truly been a blessing to our family! We made the tough decision to switch our son from public to private school 3 years ago and haven't looked back! The teachers genuinely love their students and it shows. Our son is excelling academically and continues to impress us with his knowledge of the Bible. We highly recommend LCA!

Legacy is an amazing school! My kids have attended this school for the past 7 years and I couldn't be more proud of our decision! I was looking for a school that implemented a rigorous curriculum where teachers taught with different learning styles in mind. This school has both! Students are able to think critically when applying concepts and are provided with opportunities of real-world experiences. There is a strong partnership between teachers, administrators and parents who work together for the best interest of the student. It's not just words on a paper, they truly care about your children. One of my favorite pieces of LCA is that the teachers work together in lower and middle school to ensure there aren't any gaps in the curriculum from grade to the next ensuring that our students are prepared for the next grade level. My kids love it at Legacy! Every summer during the month of July, my daughter mentions that she misses school! That is a blessing! I love that my children are in an untiring Christian environment! As a parent, I can't think of anything that is better!!

LCA has been a blessing to our family. My children are being prepared academically, socially and most importantly- spiritually for the world. Each of my 3 children has found their place in extracurricular activities and the size of the school allows them to easily participate while still having many options. The teachers and staff go above and beyond to help the students succeed and the community is so welcoming. We are so happy to a part of the Legacy Christian Academy family.

We have always felt like family at LCA. Our daughter is deeply loved and cared for by the faculty and staff. We LOVE our teachers and they love her. We are excited about the vast amount of opportunities she will have. She will be able to participate in all the same activities and athletics at LCA, that are available in the large public schools; however, she will perform them all under the umbrella of God. She will be performing for her True King, while advancing her Christian values, servant leadership and biblical guidance every day. Academically, she is excelling at LCA. The educators of LCA will adapt to each student needs to ensure their success.

LCA from day 1 was home! The teachers, faculty and families create an atmosphere that is unmatched! We have 2 kids currently enrolled and cannot wait for our last one to be an Eagle! If you are in the Plano, Frisco, McKinney or Denton area and want an academic institution that is truly faith based, you will find this as your home as well!

We have been at LCA for six years and the school has well exceeded our expectations. My children have been challenged academically and have grown so much in their spiritual walk. The teachers and staff are truly what make the difference at LCA. Knowing that my children are loved on and cared about is such a wonderful blessing. LCA has truly become family to us.

Legacy Christian Academy has surpassed our expectations over the last few years both academically and spiritually. The Transitional Kindergarten class has been just amazing for my son, where he has already learned far more in the past few weeks, than in his past years in other preschools. The elementary school has also been very challenging and a wonderful place to grow our Christian faith as a family.

The academics and Biblical foundation of LCA are what sets the school apart above others. Teachers, administrators and coaches not only prepare the students for higher level learning at top universities, but also support them in their faith walk in and out of each classroom. We have been at LCA since 1999 and could not be happier with our choice for our (now) college student, as well as our two remaining children who are still students at Legacy.
