Welcome to the Legacy Christian Academy Intermediate School
The Intermediate School at Legacy Christian Academy was created out of a desire to meet the specific needs of students in grades 5-8. As this is a critical time in a child’s development, we have created an environment that is focused on meeting those needs for acceptance, value and purpose. One of the ways we meet these needs is through being intentional in building a nurturing Christian community.
One of our goals is to prepare students for the transition to high school. There are high expectations for all students in regard to academics, athletics and fine arts. In support of this, we are intentional about training students in organization, planning, decision-making and independence.
Another goal is to help students realize their unique potential. Reaching their potential begins with having a real relationship with Jesus Christ. Out of this relationship flows the knowledge that we all have strengths. Students participate in a “Strengths Explorer” study that identifies their top three strengths. Teachers then are able to know and connect with students on a deeper level, and students have a greater appreciation for other students and their strengths.
In developing community, students participate in Eagle Club, which is a small group environment that encourages spiritual growth. Our weekly chapels provide opportunity for worship and Bible-based teaching that relates to students at an age appropriate level. Chapel is an exciting time each week, as students know that it is going to be relevant to them. Due to the wide range of students, we have two separate chapels: one for grades 5-6 and one for grades 7-8.
As part of the Intermediate School, students will participate in numerous activities over the four years, but two of those highlights include the Sixth Grade Sky Ranch Trip and the Eighth Grade Washington, D.C. Trip.
Ultimately, our desire is to partner with parents to help raise students who know Jesus, are well-prepared for high school, and have a lot of fun being a part of the Intermediate School community.
