The Legacy Promise
Legacy Christian Academy is more than a school. It is more than any one class, any one teacher, or any one student. It is more than any one person. Legacy Christian Academy is a Christian community, made whole by every student, parent, faculty and staff member. We are united through our common faith in Jesus Christ.
Our promise to every LCA Family
1. We will know your child.
2. We will love your child.
3. We will prepare your child.
We promise that we will take a personal interest in your child's welfare and progress. We will know each child's strengths and weaknesses. We will not allow him or her to fall through the cracks. We will treat your child as if he or she is one of our own. And we will reinforce the truth that he or she is made in God's image and reflects His glory.
What does it mean to be a Christian community?
And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds. (Hebrews 10:24)
LCA was founded as a Christian school that serves Christian families, and since that time, relationships among students, families, teachers, and staff have been the heart of our school. When we say that Legacy Christian Academy is a Christian community, it is because we place trust in each other—students, teacher, parents, and staff—to pursue our individual lives with shared purpose, values, and mission.
Our community is characterized by trust, respect and recognition of shared goals and values.
For I am confident of this very thing, that He who began a good work in you will perfect it until the day of Christ Jesus. (Philippians 1:6)
In a Christian community, members support each other, worship together, and provide the guidance each person needs to strengthen his or her faith. Likewise, at LCA, students, families, and members of the faculty and staff work together to establish, strengthen, and perfect the community.
Our bond is more powerful than any legal contract, for it is shared in faith with each other and with God, and it is the depth of our lifelong relationships that make our community strong. It is critical to our mission to integrate faith and learning.
Our school and families acknowledge the importance of forging a strong, unified partnership that acts in concert.
Then Peter came to Jesus and asked, ‘Lord, how many times shall I forgive my brother or sister who sins against me? Up to seven times?' Jesus answered, ‘I tell you, not seven times, but seventy-seven times.' (Matthew 18)
Our Christian community is a true partnership between the school and the families we serve, made complete by our shared faith. As partners, we work together daily to strengthen our relationships and to resolve problems and conflicts as Christians, with forthright and reasonable discussions and resolutions which are mutually beneficial to all.
