1998 - Founding
In the fall of 1998, three families, having nothing more than faith, met to discuss and pray for the development of a Christian school in the Frisco area. Their prayers formed the foundation of a school that was as yet unseen, and their faith secured the legacy that would soon be their children’s education.
1999 - First Day of School
In 1999, LCA leased facilities from Frisco Bible Church. The church agreed to house the school in its new building which was under construction, and in September 1999 with approximately 120 students in Kindergarten through 9th grade, LCA began its first school year.
2002 - Campus Academy Drive opens
Legacy Christian Academy opened in early September for the 2002-2003 school year at its current location of Legacy and Academy. During that school year, the gymnasium and cafetorium were completed. Legacy was given permission to begin the accreditation process, and in 2003 became accredited with the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS).
2004 - Athletic Complex Built
In 2004, a field house and athletic fields including a football field, a baseball & softball field and a seven lane track were added.
2006 - West Wing Expansion
Once again out of space, construction began on the West Wing, featuring the chapel, a visible indicator to all of Legacy's commitment to Christ. The addition would not only double the amount of classrooms but also create dedicated facilities for Band, Choir, & private music studios, reaffirming the arts as central to our mission.
2009 - Upper School Gymnasium Opens
In 2009, the Upper School gymnasium opened as the first phase of a separate Upper School facility, accommodate the growing number of athletes and teams. Complete with larger boys & girls locker rooms, concessions, coaches' offices, equipment storage, and trainer facilities, Legacy was once again blessed by the gifts of gracious donors and top-notch facilities.
2011 - Middle School Created
The Middle 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, LCA created an environment that is focused on meeting those needs for acceptance, value and purpose.
2012 - Upper School Campus Opens
The 2011-2012 school year was a year of change for LCA high school students, as the iLegacy 1:1 MacBook initiative launch in August, and in January high school students returned from Christmas break to a brand new 32,000 sq. ft. state-of-the-art learning environment!
