Legacy Christian Academy seeks an ideal fit between students, their families, and our school. We invite you to contact us to learn as much as you can about Legacy, our focus on faith, our educational philosophy, our core vision and mission, our outstanding arts and athletics programs, and our community as a whole.

God has been faithful to continue to lead mission-aligned families to Legacy, which has led to strong current enrollment and strong annual retention.

For the current 2018-2019 school year, we have openings in the following grade levels:

  • Grades  PK3, PK4,Transitional Kindergarten, Kindergarten, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, and 5th

For the 2019-2020 year, several grades will be near capacity.
We anticipate limited openings in the following grades for the 2019-2020 year:

  • Grades 1,2,5,6,7,8 ,9 and 11
  • Grade 10 is at capacity.

If your family is interested in any of these grades for 2019-2020, we encourage you to apply as soon as possible. Applicants who have a completed application file by November 16, 2018, will be eligible to be considered for Early Decision.

All application files are reviewed by the admissions committee. In grade levels that are at capacity, application files will be placed into a wait pool for consideration should openings become available.


As with most private schools, many families choose to apply when their student(s) will be transitioning to either middle or high school. Instead of waiting to apply for sixth or ninth grade, we would encourage you to consider applying for earlier grade levels.

Step 1 - Faith First

Legacy Christian Academy is a Covenant School. A Covenant represents a much deeper relationship between the family and school than a contractual relationship. As part of that Covenant Relationship, there are certain expectations for families applying to Legacy

  • Our goal is to grow and develop Legacy with strong Christian families who are able to articulate a salvation testimony of grace through a personal relationship with Jesus Christ. At least one parent and students in grades 7-12 must profess a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and believe in Him as Lord and Savior. The family must be able to provide a church involvement recommendation indicating regular church attendance at a Bible teaching church.
  • 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 previous school.
  • Students recommendations should show a behavioral history that is in harmony with the expectations of Legacy Christian Academy and student should exhibit a strong desire to be enrolled at Legacy.

If these statements are true of your family, we would be honored to share all Legacy has to offer, not only for your student, but your entire family.

Step 2 - Online Application & Document Upload

At Legacy the application process is completed online. Upon completion of the application file, the Admissions Committee will review a student’s application, recommendations, testing results, academic history and necessary forms. If the completed file meets all the admissions requirements, the appropriate division will contact the family to schedule a family interview. In grades 5–12, the student participates in an interview process. A completed application file contains the following items:

Step 3 - Admission Assessment Requirements

Legacy Christian Academy requires an admissions assessment for all applicants grades Pre-K4-11. As a benefit and convenience for all applicants for grades Pre-K4-6, we administer the Legacy Admissions Assessment in a warm and welcoming atmosphere on our beautiful campus.

  • The Legacy Admissions Assessment is comprised of the WPPSI IV for grades Pre-K4-2 and the WISC-V for grades 3-6.
  • The results of these assessments provide detailed information about your student’s learning style, working memory and processing speed, as well as other executive functioning skills necessary for academic success at Legacy. This information is used by our faculty to better understand your student’s learning styles and strengths.
  • The amount due upon submission of the application for Pre-K4-6th grade, is $300 ($125 application fee and $175 Legacy Admissions Assessment Fee).

  Admissions assessment criteria for applicants for grades 7-9 will be determined after an academic review of the report cards and testing in the application file.

  • Legacy accepts the Cog-AT, IOWA, STARR, PSAT, ACT, Pre-ACT, ISEE, Gifted and Talented placement scores, and Duke TIP scores as admissions assessments.
  • The payment amount due upon submission of the online application is the $125 application fee.
  •  If the academic review of these items indicates a concern about the applicant’s ability to be academically successful at Legacy, we will request the student take the Legacy Admissions Assessment at an additional cost of $175 to the family.

  Admissions assessment criteria for applicants for grades 10 and 11 will be determined after an academic review of the report cards and testing in the application file.

  • Legacy accepts the PSAT, SAT, Pre-ACT, ACT, and ISEE as admissions assessments.
  • The payment amount due upon submission of the online application is the $125 application fee.
  •  If the academic review of these items indicates a concern about the applicant’s ability to be academically successful at Legacy, we will request the student take the Legacy Admissions Assessment at an additional cost of $175 to the family.
Step 4 - Admissions Interview & Admissions Decision

Once the application file and academic review are complete, the file will be advanced to the appropriate division to schedule the admissions interview. For students applying for grades PK3–4, the admissions interview will consist of the divisional principal, or assistant principal, and the parents. For students applying for grades 5–12, the interview process will include the student.

The admissions committee meets regularly to review each admission decision. Once an admission decision has been reached, the family is notified by phone and email. Decline decisions are also notified by mail.

When parents are joint conservators, those with educational rights will be invited to participate in the interview as part of the admissions process.

Early Decision Option

Applicants who have a completed application file by November 15, will be eligible for Early Decision. Students eligible for Early Decision may continue the admissions process, and, if we have confirmed openings in a grade level, may be issued an enrollment agreement for the upcoming school year.

With many grades approaching capacity at Legacy, Early Decision is a wonderful opportunity to secure your student’s consideration for acceptance.

International Student Requirements

The International Student Program at Legacy Christian Academy allows us to welcome students requiring an I-20 document. The International Student Program accepts students entering grades 9–11. All International students must follow the admission guidelines for a traditional student, as well as meet additional criteria, including:

  1. Demonstrate a faith in Jesus Christ during the student interview;
  2. Reside with a Christian family, as evidenced in the application and family interview who lives in or in the surrounding area of Frisco, TX;
  3. Submit an Affidavit of Relationship, indicating that the student resides with a blood relative.

  5. All translated documents must be official translations; all foreign documents must include certification of authenticity.

Please note that I-20’s can only be legally issued once the student and family have been through our entire admissions process and are accepted to Legacy Christian Academy.
