Message from the Principal
Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year! I am very humbled and honored to serve as your principal. My passion for education and supporting the success of all scholars has been shaped over the last 23 years of my career; the last 6 of which have been here at Legacy. Legacy Early College is home, and where my heart lies. It is the perfect place to do the most important work in the world; equipping every scholar with a quality education.
As we embark on this year, we pledge that this will be a year of engaging, meaningful, and rigorous work in the classroom. Our highly-qualified staff of professional educators and support personnel, is committed to providing you with unyielding support. Our mission and belief is that all scholars will graduate from Legacy Early College, college bound. Our partnerships with Greenville Technical College and North Greenville University provide scholars with first-hand experience of exactly what it takes to excel in college, while enrolled in high school. So, it is no surprise that the senior class has had a 100% acceptance rate into college for six consecutive years. In addition, the Class of 2019 earned over five million dollars of scholarship money toward college.
We are eager and excited to begin what promises to be the best year yet. Our theme for this year is “Mission Possible.” We believe in the work that we do daily, and we know it will help us accomplish our mission and vision of seeing scholars to and through college graduation.
We have integrated our programs, procedures, and policies into these student planners. Parents, please take time to review them with your scholar. This planner is an excellent tool for scholars to stay well-organized for success. We require all scholars to keep, and maintain their planners in good condition.
Again, welcome to 2019-2020 school year! I look forward to having a long and rewarding relationship with you and your family. This will truly be a winning season for all!
LaCheryl Smith, Principal
