The mission of the Legacy Learning Center is to provide a supportive environment that facilitates academic awareness in the areas of learning, self- advocacy, and organizational habits that lead to success.
Support for Students

Lower, Middle, and Upper Schools each have their own dedicated room and specially trained teacher. At a cost of $2000/year, this program provides support for qualified students at all grade levels, in order to maximize their potential for success within the LCA curriculum.
