“Legacy has helped me become the person I am now and be a successful person. Legacy is the best school to go to right now if you really want to see yourself succeed.”
Every Graduate To and Through College
At Legacy Early College, it's our vision to see each high school graduate go to and through college.
Every year, Campbell Young Leaders will fund scholarship grants to graduates of LEC under these terms:
- A graduate of LEC who attends a college, as defined below*, will be entitled to a scholarship grant of $1,000/year, payable $500 upon enrollment at college each semester, provided that such graduate maintains a grade point average of at least 2.5 at such college.
- A cumulative maximum of $4,000 may be awarded to an individual graduate of LEC under this program.
- Scholarships are only available to graduates of LEC in the 4 years following their graduation.
- An applicant for said scholarship must authorize their college to have a Legacy Early College representative verify the applicant’s attendance and grade point average.
- Scholarships shall not be granted to immediate family members of employees, officers or directors of CYL or to family members of substantial contributors to CYL.
- CYL reserves the right to amend, modify or cancel this scholarship program at any time.
* For purposes hereof, “college” includes only those educational organizations described in Section 170(b)(1)(A)(ii) of the Internal Revenue Code.

“Without Legacy today I don’t think I would have gone to school. Legacy pushes you to apply for schools and they go out and above themselves and I feel like that really helped me. If I had gone to a public school I wouldn’t have been applying to schools.”
“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.”
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.
