Why We're Different
for High School Scholars
Our scholars are dual enrolled in college classes at area colleges. These classes are held on our campus. We offer 20 different college classes to our scholars in which they may earn up to 18 credit hours towards a college degree.
To and Through
Every scholar is equipped with the tools to achieve this goal. After high school graduation, our scholars are visited by our Alumni Director to ensure and assist in their college journey and even attend their college graduation. We are here for you!
We Teach to the
Our scholars learn through active participation in various studies. We teach not only educational minds, but grow healthy minds through kinesthetic learning , emotional health, constructive self reflection, and health education.
From Our Community
“Legacy has been more than just a school to me. I was blessed with amazing teachers who guided me into the path of college. I graduated college in 2020 with a Bachelors in Education and two minors. Now, I have the great opportunity to give back to the Legacy community by teaching young scholars in Legacy Middle School.”
Daniela Cortes, class of 2015
“College to me means:
Breaking a family curse and showing my younger siblings, cousins and friends that there’s more to life than just where you are now.” Allyssa D., Class of 2023
“I surround myself with overachievers. We have good work ethic. We always help each other out, even if we’re not taking the same classes…. With it being a more difficult school, I got more disciplined. I think being here set that standard for me to always get my work done, no matter what.”Zoe B., Class of 2024
"My favorite thing about Legacy is the community here. The teachers not only get to know you, but they know you personally!"Jayden Williams, Class of 2020
“I’m glad I graduated Legacy because Legacy was able to give me the opportunity to go to college I wanted. They prepared me and made sure that I received the test scores my school required. They provided me a chance to experience real college classes which ultimately helped a lot when I went to college.”Ana Hernandez, Class of 2018
“I’m glad I attended Legacy because it instilled values and principles in me that has helped me be successful in life today, and also develop relationships that will last forever.” Harrison graduated in May 2020 from University of Detroit Mercy.
