Legacy Early College supports college bound scholars from the very beginning.
Legacy Early College's Elementary Learning (K-2nd grades):
All lower level elementary scholars learn through core modules that will support their learning in our PRE-Early College Program as well as College Program. Through different modules, various reading foundation blocks, scholars learn the basics of all subjects. They are given personalized learning through programs such as Compass and Zearn, and all scholars attend hands on learning in our state of the art STEAM Lab.
Legacy Early College's PRE-Early College Program Supports (3rd-8th grade):
All scholars are identified through regular MAP assessment testing during their 3rd-8th grade years. In the eighth grade Legacy parents benefit from seminars about early-college. LECHS guidance sessions are provided for school faculty, ensuring they can properly prepare Legacy scholars for the rigors of the early college program.
Early-College College Program Supports (9th-12th grade):
High school scholars are given ACT, End-of-Course, and Accuplacer Placement Tests to determine which scholars are ready for early college classes, these are conducted twice per academic year. Scholars that do not qualify for the Gateway for College Success Program are provided with academic interventions in reading, writing, and math subjects through LECHS’s Extended Day Program. Our educators integrate character-development training into scholar curriculum . High school scholars are able to provide program feedback each semester, ensuring LECHS faculty members are aware of current/potential challenges. High school scholars are matched with Transition Coaches—volunteer community mentors that regularly meet with high school seniors and provide them with career, social, and academic support.
Legacy Early College supports fitness and health education (K5-12th grade):
All scholars receive health and fitness educational instruction and materials which enables them to create life-long healthy lifestyles. We actively engage scholars in fitness goals by implementing Active Classrooms (OPEN PE) and Walkabouts (Active ED). Sexual Education is given to our middle scholars through Choosing the Best (Live Free). All of our scholars also learn various nutritional concepts given by the Alliance for a Healthier Generation and USDA's Choose MyPlate programs.
Legacy Early College is there to support our scholars from the Beginning of their education and through their completion of their college degree.
