Before you start the application process:
What does it mean to be a Covenant Christian school?

Legacy Christian Academy is a non-denominational, Covenant School. A Covenant represents a much deeper relationship between the family and school than a contractual relationship. As part of that Covenant Relationship, it is important for each of our families to understand and agree with the basic Biblical standards upon which the school was founded.

  • We require that at least one parent is a Christian with a testimony of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.
  • We also require the family be regular attendees of a Bible-teaching church, as will be evidenced by the submission of a Church Involvement Form.
  • We believe that the Bible is inspired by God, inerrant and authoritative and that it is the divine and final authority for Christians. Examine these Scriptures: II Timothy 3:16; Psalms 12:6, 119:105, 160; II Peter 1:16, 20, 21; Proverbs 30:5.

 

What does Legacy look for in a potential applicant?
  • Only students whose academic records demonstrate a proven capability to succeed will be considered for our program. Students should be performing at or above grade level and be in positive academic standing in their current school.
  • Student recommendations should show a behavioral history that is in harmony with the expectations of Legacy Christian Academy, and students should exhibit a strong desire to be enrolled at Legacy.
