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.
