"I will praise you for I am fearfully and wonderfully made." 
Psalm 139:14a

 

Legacy Christian Academy’s welcoming atmosphere and student body embrace students with a wide-range of academic abilities. We believe that God has fearfully and wonderfully made each of us as unique individuals. Our mission is to compassionately identify the needs of students and partner with parents to offer and implement solutions, so each student can grow to his or her highest potential to the glory of our Lord Jesus Christ until He returns.

Legacy Christian Academy offers evidence-based approaches in the identification and intervention of students with exceptionalities. In order to provide every student with the Least Restrictive Environment (LRE) that will nurture and produce the best possible learning outcomes, we work in conjunction with local state licensed school psychologists who evaluate referrals to ensure early identification and intervention implementation.

We are also a Jon Peterson Scholarship program provider. As a Jon Peterson provider we are able to offer intervention and speech and language therapy services.

All Legacy Christian Academy intervention specialists are licensed by the state of Ohio and are trained in evidence-based intervention strategies. Our intervention specialists are able to write Individualized Service Plans (ISP), Individualized Education Programs (IEP), Accommodation Plans, and Transition Plans as part of an IEP or ISP.  

(Note: IEP’s will be written for students that have been awarded the Jon Peterson Scholarship. Accommodation Plans are written instead of 504 plans.)

We want every student to learn to the best of their ability and receive the help they need. This is why we have implemented a researched strategy called Response to Intervention (RTI). This is a three-tiered approach to help identify struggling students and get them the help they need before they fall behind. This process prevents the misdiagnosis of students entering special education services and rightly identifies students with exceptionalities. 

For information on the program and services that we are able to provide for your student, please call 937-352-1640.
