Visit Legacy
Step into our welcoming classrooms, see our thriving small class sizes, witness our multiage groups at work, and meet the professionals who will guide your children along the way.
From the first moment we entered The Legacy School (during the parent visit), we immediately knew that it was meant for our child. The teachers at The Legacy School are truly incredible. Their patience and overwhelming kindness are evident every day. They have taken an interest in my son, not just from an educational view, but they learned his special interests and tapped into them to motivate him academically. My husband and I are continuously grateful for The Legacy School. It transformed our kid who couldn’t sound out the word C-A-T, into a confident child who is now attempting to read signs and knows hundreds of sight words! Without a doubt, this was the best decision we could have made for our child.

The Legacy School offers a rolling admissions process for prospective students.

For the best chance of securing a spot in our community, submit your application by February 1. In order to be considered for financial aid, applications for admission and a separate financial aid application are due by February 1.

 

The online application is to be completed and submitted with a non-refundable application fee of $90.00. A full psychological-educational evaluation, administered by a qualified psychologist, is required in the admissions process. Speech and language evaluations and educational testing are highly valuable in this process; however, these assessments do not replace a comprehensive psychological-educational evaluation.

The Legacy School does not discriminate on the basis of sex, race, color, religion, sexual orientation, national or ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admission policies, scholarship and loan programs, athletic and other school-administered programs, and the appointment of faculty and staff.
