THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST IN LEGACY CLASSICAL!
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 (PreK-5th) to three (6th 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 individual's 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.
Legacy Classical is internationally accredited with AdvanceEd. “AdvancED was created through a 2006 merger of the Pre-K-12 divisions of the North Central Association Commission on Accreditation and School Improvement (NCA CASI) and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools Council on Accreditation and School Improvement (SACS CASI)—and expanded through the addition of the Northwest Accreditation Commission (NWAC) in 2012.”
Only private schools with an Advanc-Ed accreditation are recognized by the state. This does not mean students are required to take state testing. However, colleges and the military will accept your child’s high school transcript without question. In addition, the Valedictorian receives an automatic scholarship: Highest Ranking Graduate. “The award is free tuition (at a Texas public college or university) during both semesters of the first regular session immediately following the student's high school graduation. “ [https://tea.texas.gov/HRG/]
This also provides Legacy with the ability to host Collegeboard testing such as PSAT, SAT, or ACT. We hope to be able to designate our current classes as official Collegeboard pre-AP classes in the near future.
