What curriculum will Legacy Christian School use?

Our curriculum is primarily faith-based and where it is not, upper grade math and primary reading for example, care has been taken to ensure it is not in opposition to our Statement of Faith. We have focused on selecting curriculum that will provide our teachers with the most assistance possible in providing multiple options for differentiated instruction and learning readiness. We’ve also committed to finding student materials that are engaging and interesting. The Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), Bob Jones University Press (BJU), Big Ideas Math, Institute for Excellence in Writing, Mystery Science, and Fundations are some of the companies we are using for our curriculum. A full list, per grade level, can be found on our website under the “Academics” tab.

Do we hold Chapel?

Our commitment is for chapels to be engaging and provide age-appropriate experiences centered on the personal application of God’s Word. We want students to look forward to chapels so we are focused on providing a variety of different styles of chapels by individuals who will excite and challenge our students. Generally, chapels are twice a month. However, we will only schedule chapels as we are able to secure qualified individuals to lead chapels with this criterion in mind. Every class does have a scheduled time daily for Bible lessons and prayer.

What do Enrichment Fridays look like?

Every Friday that school is in session is dismissed at noon, and is structured differently than the other days of the week. Typically, the morning is comprised of some academic instruction, usually in math and language arts, various tests and quizzes, Bible or Chapel, as well as a time of “enrichment”. The goal for the “enrichment” portion is for teachers to provide a variety of fun, engaging, challenging, and organized activities that are either an extension of an academic topic, or instruction and enrichment in some form of the arts or music. Teachers also have the option to provide intentional, individualized and small group student assistance as needed.

As opportunities arise, teachers are encouraged to invite outside guests who are qualified and gifted to either speak to their class about a particular career or ministry they are involved in, or instruct their class on a variety of topics such as a foreign language, an area of the arts, specific crafts, etc. Field trips are also planned on Fridays as much as possible. Parent-Teacher conferences and teacher professional development days are scheduled in advance on appropriate Fridays when school is not in session. All of this allows for a more in-depth and intentional academic focus Monday through Thursday.

What is the dress code?

Students are not required to wear uniforms at Legacy Christian School. Our general guidelines reflect the overriding principles of modesty, school-appropriateness, cleanliness, moderation and safety. A specific dress code is described in our Parent/Student Handbook, which can be found on the school’s website under the “Resources” tab.

Do you have a policy related to technology/cell phone use?

Personal electronic devices (i.e. cell phones, iPads, tablets, etc.) may be brought to school at the parents’ request. However, they are expected to be kept in the student’s backpack and not taken out for use unless in the presence of a school staff member. More information can be found in the Parent-Student Handbook.

What is your plan for school security?

Our student’s safety and security are of the utmost importance. All visitors are required to check in at the school office. A security camera system is installed with viewing monitors in the school office. Evacuation and emergency protocols are in place and practiced. School personnel are trained and certified in first aid and CPR. More information can be found in the Parent-Student Handbook.

Are their lunch options available on campus?

We currently offer a variety of healthy lunch options twice a week. Predetermined menus from local fast-food restaurants are made available with advanced orders submitted to the school office.

Can parents/guardians volunteer?

While parents are not required to volunteer, we both value and need their involvement. There will be a number of opportunities to become involved such as assisting with the lunch program, on the playground, in the office, some classroom assistance, etc.

Do you offer transportation?

Legacy Christian School does not have bus service available.  All transportation to and from school is the responsibility of parents.  Carpooling with other parents is recommended and encouraged, but is not facilitated by the school.
