Legacy Christian Academy provides comprehensive and effective use of existing and emerging technology to engage, challenge and motivate all learners.
We believe it is our responsibility to equip our students and staff with the knowledge and tools that will allow them to function effectively and efficiently in an ever-increasingly technological society while maintaining their Christian faith and worldview.
Our teachers have always been and will always be our greatest asset at Legacy Christian Academy, and no amount of technology will ever change that fact. It is our belief that technology exists in order that teachers and students might be more efficient and effective.
Three facts constantly emerge as Legacy Christian Academy considers its long-term future. First, our teachers are clamoring for greater access to information that is increasingly computer-based and Internet related. Second, no amount of computers labs could satisfy what our teachers feel is necessary for students to succeed. And third, technology continues to play an ever-increasing role in the lives of students, both in and outside of the classroom. The only viable solution is to reverse the traditional model of bringing the students to the technology, and instead bring the technology to the students.
To that end the Academy unveiled iLegacy, a 1:1 High School Laptop Initiative in January 2010. Within months, iLegacy expanded to include iPads in the Intermediate and Lower Schools, and in less than a year’s time, the amount of student laptops and iPads has increased by over 500 percent.
Recognizing that these these student-focused initiatives would not succeed without properly equipped faculty, the Academy invested in its teachers by providing each member with a form of portable technology. Teachers in grades 7 through 12 were issued MacBooks, and all preschool through 8th grade faculty were given an iPad2.
