Admissions Assistance: 817-382-2322
A University-Model School has a foundational premise of meaningful parent-student-teacher interaction to make an eternal difference in a child’s education. With this in mind, admission to Legacy Classical involves prayerful and intentional steps designed to establish a thorough understanding of both parent and school responsibility.
Admission to Legacy Classical Christian Academy consists of the following five mandatory components:
STEP 1: VISIT THE CAMPUS
An introductory meeting provides basic information about the pedagogy of Classical education and the University-Model School lifestyle, as well as details specific to Legacy Classical's history, mission, policies and campus life. Prospective families receive information to take home as they prayerfully consider their potential involvement with Legacy Classical.
STEP 2: COMPLETE THE PRE-QUALIFICATION QUESTIONNAIRE
The Pre-Qualification Questionnaire will be provided to you via an email after your tour. Answers are scored according to a rubric. It will be shared as a Google Doc so you are able to type directly on the form. There are 15 questions. A score of less than 50% will automatically disqualify your family from enrollment.
STEP 3: COMPLETE A STUDENT APPLICATION
The application focuses largely on the family’s personal educational goals. It includes subjective input as to the applying student’s strengths, personal learning style and challenges. Any medical documentation or specialized academic documentation (i.e. 504, IEP) must be included with the application. Nota Bene: Because we admit students with dyslexia and mild learning disorders, it is important to provide any and all specialized academic documentation in order for the school to determine if you and your family can be effectively served.
If your family has completed and passed the pre-qualification questionnaire, you will receive a personal email inviting your family to apply.
STEP 4: COMPLETE A STUDENT ASSESSMENT
Each prospective student is given a formal assessment so that our administration can make a well-informed recommendation for grade placement. Assessments typically take between 1 and 1½ hours. You will receive information regarding assessments after your application is received. Assessments happen twice a year: towards the end of May and the end of July.
STEP 5: ATTEND A FAMILY INTERVIEW
Both parent(s)/guardian(s) and any others (such as a grandparent or hired private tutor) who will participate regularly with at-home work, as well as the prospective student(s) and sibling(s), should plan to attend this meeting which focuses on grade placement and your family’s unique relationship with Legacy Classical. You will receive information regarding dates for your family interview after your application is received. Family interviews happen after assessments.
All monies are non-refundable. All tuition and fees are a contractual amount and are non-refundable. Any monies paid to the school whether Dyslexia Testing by a Certified Academic Language Therapist, a Friday elective, field trip, or any fee, is non-refundable. Please take this into consideration when you choose Legacy Classical. The parent is liable for the total amount and will be asked to pay the total amount whether or not the student completes the school year (or completes any other service) provided by Legacy Classical. All monies are non-refundable.
