Your Legacy begins here

College Bound

Before LECHS opened in 2010, neighborhood HS graduation rates were as low as 50%. Less than 5% of neighborhood scholars would attend college. Last year, 95% of LECHS seniors graduated from high school, and 100% of these
graduates were accepted to college.

Every goal is achievable

We provide healthy meals, physical education, social and emotional education as well as small group, one-on-one instruction, gifted and talented services as well as ESOL classes for those scholars that need to be challenged outside of their normal classroom.

Mentoring between grade levels

Our high school scholars mentor our elementary scholars.  This assists our younger scholars to stay focused on their goal while allowing our older scholars to give back to the community in which they live.

“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.”
