Do you have to be a Christian to attend Legacy?
Legacy Academy operates on the covenant-model of Christian school admission, meaning that parents are active, professing Christians, involved in a local church. Partnership with parents is central to Legacy’s mission statement, providing students with a consistent commitment to the truth of Scripture whether they are at home or at school. However, Legacy Preschool welcomes and serves the entire Branson area community.

Do you have chapel?
Legacy Academy students currently attend chapel once a month. We believe chapels are great for building the Christ-centered culture of the school, but the most important discipleship takes place in our daily morning pledges, prayers, and devotionals as well as daily integration of Scripture and faith into all academic studies and habits.
I am interested in enrolling a student who has never studied Latin. How do you help prepare students to join their grade in Latin?
Legacy Academy starts Latin in the second grade, but we have welcomed and supported many students transferring from all ages into our school. During the summer before enrollment, we offer students a transfer-focused tutoring program that augments Memoria Press’s online independent Latin study program. Throughout the first year, we will graciously support transfer students as they rigorously seek to progress in their Latin studies along with classmates.
What high school sports will Legacy Academy offer?

Do Legacy Academy students wear uniforms?
Yes, we have a uniform policy and all uniforms are purchased through Lands End or Works of Art. Preschool does not require uniforms but we do have Legacy Cubs t-shirts available through Works of Art.
Does Legacy Academy offer Physical Education, Music, and Art?
Yes, beginning in kindergarten, our students have all of these at least once a week.
What is Legacy’s technology use policy?
Legacy Academy is a low-tech school by design. The effective implementation of comprehensive classical curriculum does not require the use of technology. Additionally, there are significant concerns related to the overuse of technology by children. Thus, Legacy will only use technology for a clearly designed purpose and for a set amount of time, which will be primarily fo typing papers in upper grades. Legacy also works with parents and professionals to offer after school and summer courses for students interested in coding, typing, and healthy life with technology.
