Equipping Leaders for Christ.
Legacy graduates are academically, personally, and spiritually equipped to
continue their education in college,
participate productively in the marketplace, and
influence their culture for Christ
by leading in their family, church, community, and vocation.
Commensurate with their individual talents (Matthew 25:14-30),
graduates humbly steward their gifts and resources for God’s glory (I Chronicles 29:11-13)
in service to Christ (Colossians 3:23-24),
pursuing relationship with God (Mark 12:29-30, John 17:3),
bearing the fruit of Christian character (Mark 12:31, Galatians 5:22-23),
demonstrating godly excellence in all areas (Philippians 4:8),
and leading so others might follow Christ by imitating their example (Philippians 4:9).
Philosophy of Christian Education
Legacy Christian Academy partners with Christian families in their responsibility to teach children to know God (Deuteronomy 6:4-7, Psalm 78:1-8) and to walk in a manner worthy of Him (Colossians 1:10), assisting parents in raising their children in the discipline and instruction of the Lord (Ephesians 6:4). In service to God’s kingdom and for the growth of His church, all LCA volunteers and employees – faculty, coaches, staff, and administrators – are ministers of the gospel, preparing Legacy students for a life of ministry (Ephesians 4:11-12).
LCA views academic, personal, and spiritual development as simultaneously essential and inextricably linked in the process of equipping leaders for Christ. As a result, LCA integrates biblical truth, character development, discipleship, student leadership, service mindset, and the pursuit of both truth and beauty into all academic and co-curricular programs. Additionally, to equip Christian leaders of the highest caliber, LCA embraces developmentally appropriate academic rigor within a relational learning environment, challenging students both independently and collaboratively to think critically, solve problems, and communicate clearly and creatively.
All LCA community members – students, parents, volunteers, and employees – bear responsibility to follow Christ daily (Luke 9:23-24), submitting to God as stewards under His leadership (Psalm 24:1). This daily responsibility to follow Christ extends to leading others by example and instruction in acting wisely (Ephesians 5:15-16), doing justice, loving-kindness, and walking humbly with God (Micah 6:8). LCA community members commit to regularly reading and studying the Bible (Psalm 119:11, 105), maintaining an active prayer life (I Thessalonians 5:17), participating in a local church that agrees with the LCA statement of faith (Hebrews 10:24-25), and sharing the gospel of Jesus Christ with those who do not know Him (Matthew 28:19-20).
