Legacy Christian School is a school with historical roots that spans a century of Christian education. Christian principles are woven throughout our entire culture and curriculum in every subject, every level, every day.
We are intentional about how we implement and strengthen the faith of each student through Bible class, weekly chapels, small groups, service projects and Teaching for Transformation.
Today, our school is made up of just over 300 students in preschool through eighth grade.
With average class sizes of 18 in K-8, teachers have the opportunity to get to know their students and give them the individualized attention they deserve.
Legacy seeks to nurture our students into becoming Christ-Follower and Kingdom-Builders.

School Notes

  • Established in 1893, Cutlerville Christian School preceded the building of Kelloggsville Christian School by just three years. Over the last century, these two schools evolved with the ever-changing needs of our students and families, yet our commitment to providing the highest caliber Christian education remains constant. In coming together, we became stronger.In 2006, Legacy was formed and sits in the heart of Cutlerville, in two separate campuses. Our East Campus is our elementary school, serving students in preschool through 4th grade. Our West Campus is our middle school, serving students in grades five through eight. Both of our buildings have had additions, renovations and improvements over the past years, with more to come.
  • Our certified teachers are rich in experience and education. They have been chosen on the basis of their personal commitment to Jesus Christ as well as their unique teaching skills and passion for Christian education. They are committed to learning and implementing the best teaching practices in their classrooms to ensure that every child has the opportunity to succeed. More importantly, they consider it a privilege and a responsibility to model Jesus Christ as they seek to encourage students to grow in their own personal faith in Him.
