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.  Our mission is to develop strong leaders with biblical convictions for college and beyond.  It is our commitment to partner with you as you raise your child(ren). We will uniquely know, love, and prepare your child(ren).   We are committed to being the school of choice for committed Christian families in North Texas. Therefore, at least one parent must profess a personal relationship with Jesus Christ and believe in Him as Lord and Savior. If this is true of your family, we would be honored to share all Legacy has to offer, not only for your student, but your entire family. We offer the following resources to help you learn more:

4 Shadow Experience

The best way for prospective students to learn about LCA is to be an Eagle for the day! Students in grades 6 -12 are invited on campus for a first-hand look into a typical day at Legacy. They will attend classes with a Student Ambassador, eat lunch with new friends, tour the campus, meet teachers, and ask questions.

6 Family Interview

If we feel we can successfully partner with the family and meet your child(ren)’s needs, we will schedule a Family Interview where both parents meet a member of the divisional leadership team. Student applicants in Grades 5-12 will also interview individually in the same timeframe.


Welcome to Legacy!

If your applicant is accepted, an email will be sent with a link to the Continuous Enrollment Agreement (CEA). Your family will have no more than 7 days to submit the CEA and the one-time $1500 New Student Enrollment Fee. At this point the applicant will be officially enrolled as a student!


The Wait Pool at LCA

You’ve completed the admissions policy at LCA and you’ve been accepted to our wait pool. Now what?

Wait pools begin once all priority admission seats have been awarded. Qualified students have the opportunity to remain in consideration for the Spring and Rolling Admission dates, should seats become available. When additional seats become available, all wait pool candidates are individually reconsidered for enrollment. Priority is given to children of faculty and staff and siblings of current students.
