We have been at Legacy for nine years, and we love the families, teachers and other students! It is a rigorous educational experience centered on Christ's Word! We have been able to participate in sports, NHS, Praise Band, theater and many more fun activities. We are thankful that our children have been able to score high on nationwide testing they do each year, and we feel they are being challenged academically as well. But mostly, we love the community of family and people that we get to do life with......it has been such a blessing!

My son has been attending Spell Well for over 2 years and loves it. I always feel comfortable leaving him in their care and he is always talking about what he learns each day when I pick him up. The school offers so many extras, but the most important thing they do is pay attention to each chi…
This center takes pride in all the attention they give to their students. They have a huge # of parent referrals and one of the lowest teacher turnover ratios around. All great ingredients for a successful learning environment. Highly recommend!!!!
My two daughters have attended Legacy for seven years. I can say that enrolling them in Legacy was the best parenting decision that we made. Not only did my wife and I get to spend more time with them as they were growing up, but we also had an active part in their education. My 11th grader will be taking pre-calculus and dual credit classes with Lone Star College this year. This is a rigorous curriculum and my girls have had to spend hours at home to keep up with the course work. The program has taught my daughters to be self-disciplined with completing their homework with no direction from me. They have learned to communicate directly with their teachers via their Chromebooks whenever they have questions about their assignments. The grading system and school structure becomes more like college as you advance through high school so that it is a smooth transition to college for the graduates. Both of my daughters are college ready and they still have 2 and 3 years left at Legacy. We are very pleased with our decision to send our girls to Legacy.There have now been 4 graduating classes at Legacy and graduates have been accepted at the following schools:Abilene ChristianBaylorConcordiaDallas BaptistElmira College (New York)Fresno State (California)Grand Canyon UniversityHardin SimmonsHouston BaptistMcMurray U.Millsaps College (Mississippi)Mississippi CollegeOklahoma StateOral RobertsRider (New Jersey)SamfordSouthwesternSt. Edward’sSweet Briar College (Virginia)Texas A&MTexas LutheranTexas StateTexas TechU of HIncarnate WordMary Hardin-BaylorNew MexicoNorth TexasOklahomaVasser CollegeThe 2017 graduating class was eligible for $1.41 million in merit-based scholarships.
Enrolled my son there in fall of 2016. He was there for 4 months. He has several learning disabilities which I informed them of in detail. I also told them precisely what grade level he was at in each subject. They assured me that this was fine. For 4 months I got glowing reviews from them in phone conversations and face-to-face meetings, including having their contact person read me quotes from his teachers about his positive attitude, hard work and steady progress. At the end of the 4 months, however, I got a phone call from my son one afternoon telling me they were sending him home early. He couldn't tell me why and neither could anyone else there. I went in and asked what was going on. The owner of Champs first tried to put me off, telling me to "come back in a few days" because she was busy. When I insisted on getting some answers, she told me I had been lied to (her exact phrase: "you've been lied to"), that my son was not doing well, that he hadn't been taught the subjects we were told he was being taught for several months, and that he wasn't at a high enough grade level to participate in their classes. When I asked why her staff had been lying to me for 4 months, she had no good answer. She then pulled open her desk drawer and offered me a month's refund in cash. Then she wanted to know if I was going to continue to send my son there! The entire experience was beyond surreal. To this day I cannot figure out what was going on. I've waited some time to post this review, in part to give myself time to think analytically about it. However, I'm no closer to any logical explanation for our experience than I was, except that I can only think that they needed our money and so were willing to string us along and waste our time and money for however long it took them to get other paying customers in the door. Based on our experience, I cannot recommend this place. Not only did they cost us time and money we don't have to waste, but this was devastating for my son.
Terrible experience from the front office to the teachers. There was a caring environment - however, no academic rigor at all. Very disappointing academics and the headmaster clearly has her favorites. Stay away from LPCA.
This is one of the worst schools we've ever been a part of, from the new principal the staff. And if you try to fight for your child, they find a way to shut you up or take it out on your child. We recently moved to Dallas and I thank god every day that we are no longer a part of this place. When a principal can tell you what rights you have and DONT have as a parent, you know something is wrong. Since when can you not walk your kids to school? Since when do you have no rights to walk back to your child's class? The worst thing that this district ever did was hire this new principal. Mr Campbell (before her) wasn't great either but NEVER have thugs been as bad as they are now. If I could give them a -100 stars in leadership I would.
We have been at Legacy for six years, and it has been such a blessing. We have four children at Legacy and the academics are challenging, the teachers are well-qualified and the small class sizes are wonderful! Legacy has testing they do each year (although they do not "teach to the test"), and our children have scored high each year on these tests. But, not only are the academics excellent, but it is also given through a biblical worldview. They are getting challenged not only academically, but spiritually as well. We also love the community of families at Legacy too! We are very thankful for this school!
The academic standards for the school are very low. The teachers are not required to meet the basic minimum standards to teach in the state of Texas (since the school is private), so many are not certified or experienced. Many of the administrators have children who attend or friends with children who attend. While this is not inherently negative, the result is a great deal of "bending the rules" and lowering of academic standards if any parent feels upset about their student doing poorly on an assessment. This is the school's first year to have a senior class. They have never graduated any students, nor is there any data that can solidly indicate that this particular school is adequately preparing them for college. As a teacher who has taught for several years and graduated hundreds of students, I am not convinced the kids are being equipped to succeed. I do not recommend sending your student to this school to be the "guinea pig" in this educational experiment.
