ABOUT LEGACY CLASSICAL CHRISTIAN ACADEMY
We are a certified University-Model School in the North Fort Worth/Haslet area, supporting families who seek to fulfill the biblical mandate to train children up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. (Ephesians 6:4). We count it a privilege to come alongside families who desire to be “in the world, but not of it” as commanded in Scripture. (1 John 2:15, Romans 12:1-2)
Legacy Classical Christian Academy is a five-day academic program. Highly qualified teachers provide instruction in the “central classroom” two (K-6) to three (7th and up) days a week. The remaining weekdays are spent at the satellite classroom completing reinforcement assignments and projects. Parents and/or private tutors attend valuable training workshops to help ensure quality mentoring and learning at home. Both classrooms are under the supervision of the professional educator at the school. In general, students spend one to two hours on at-home assignments for each hour they spend in Legacy Classical classrooms.
Our faculty, families and staff are committed to helping our students develop a Christ-centered worldview as they engage in academically advanced curriculum. This is the essence of a classical education. We adhere to this model through a structure called the Trivium, a Latin term meaning “the three ways” or “the three roads,” which form the foundation of an individuals formal education: grammar, logic and rhetoric. Grammar is the mechanics of a language; logic (or dialectic) is the mechanics of thought and analysis; rhetoric is the use of language to instruct and persuade1. In addition, we employ the progymnasmata throughout lower school and upper school instruction. The progymnasmata are preliminary writing exercises that introduce students to basic rhetorical concepts and strategies.
