Classical Christian Education



Legacy Academy utilizes the proven classical model of education developed by the ancient Greeks and Romans. Refined through the ages and reintroduced in the United States, this method produces true scholars: students who love to learn, think clearly, listen carefully, reason and write persuasively, and speak precisely.


Legacy Academy promotes a distinctly Christian worldview. We present all subjects as defined by Christian truth, and lead students to evaluate all human knowledge and experience in light of the Scriptures. Our graduates will possess a deep understanding of their world; the ability to discern truth and the tools to influence the world for God’s glory.

Private & independent

As a private independent school district, Legacy Academy does not accept funding from local, state, or federal governments, or individual religious denominations. Our independence permits us to provide a true classical and Christian educational experience that is pure in mission, vision, and result, and free from outside oversight or influence.


Classical structure

The classical approach to education follows the Trivium (grammar, logic, rhetoric), which is the natural way God designed children to learn most effectively.
Grammar Phase (K-5)
Grammar is the foundation that all other learning is built upon.  In the grammar phase recitation helps students memorize facts and basic knowledge creating a very solid educational foundation.  In the grammar phase students love to memorize songs and chants and they can do it with ease.   
Logic Phase (6-8)
At the middle school age students become argumentative, they love to argue.  They become opinionated, they start really thinking for themselves, and they love to ask why.  The Classical approach takes advantage of this.  During this phase students take classes in Logic, and they are taught how to think and how to argue well, with love and respect.  In the Logic phase students are taught to form strong, well-reasoned arguments.
Rhetoric Phase (9-12)
In the rhetoric phase students are taught to write and to speak well.  Students will be taught to debate, to persuade others, and to communicate effectively.  Throughout their senior year students will prepare and present a senior thesis which will be the capstone of the student’s education at Legacy.
