“Legacy paved the pathway for me to go to college, I had teachers, principals, Mr. Brown telling me they were gonna do everything they could to get me scholarships and get me to college and now I am at Furman on a full ride.”
GATEWAY FOR SUCCESS
LECHS’s GCS Program features Memorandums of Understanding and well-established partnerships with Greenville Technical College (GTC) and North Greenville University (NGU). Thanks to these strong partnerships with GTC and NGU, LECHS’s scholars are taking and earning full-credit college courses, including: Medical Terminology, Criminal Justice, English 101&102, Marketing, Sociology, Spanish 1&2, College Algebra, Microcomputer Applications, and Computer Science.
At the end of the 2018-2019 academic year, LECHS’s GCS Program continued to witness the successful growth of the dual credit portion of the program. In the prior 2017-2018 academic year, 48 LECHS scholars earned 223 dual credits at GTC and NGU, across 62 classes.
In the 2018-2019 academic year, 73 LECHS scholars earned 401 dual enrollment credits, across 145 classes. Importantly, LECHS’s GCS Program scholars averaged a cumulative dual credit GPA of 3.1 and passed 100% of all 145 dual credit classes taken during the 2018-2019 academic year, providing evidence that GCS Program staff continue to do an excellent job identifying which LECHS scholars are ready for the rigors of college-level work.
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.
“As a Legacy Early College Alumni it was an honor to graduate from Legacy because their values they instill in their scholars and how it sets you up to be successful in college and the future. Also, the relationships I built with the faculty and my mentor.”
"My favorite thing about Legacy is the community here. The teachers not only get to know you, but they know you personally!"
