About Us

message from our middle school principal

As principal of Legacy Early College Middle School, it is my pleasure to welcome you to our awesome school! We are looking forward to a year of amazing academic achievement, extraordinary social-emotional growth, and exceptional teaching and learning. Our focus on getting our scholars to and through college makes Legacy one of a kind in South Carolina and the pride of our scholars, families, faculty, and community. Legacy offers the only truly “college-bound” experience for urban scholars in the upstate, and our results prove that our scholars are on track—in 2019, our school earned the highest academic growth rating of all middle schools in South Carolina, and we have had an “Excellent” state Report Card rating for two straight years.

Our scholars are engaged in critical thinking, problem-solving, Socratic seminar discussions, and extensive writing every day. We use a rigorous, standards-aligned curriculum. Throughout the year, we devote 90 minutes of instruction every day to math, reading and writing, ensuring that our scholars are prepared for college and beyond.  

Building an inspiring, scholarly culture is a key to our success. We foster good habits and pay attention to every detail. We work as a team so that every scholar feels a part of our community and has the best chance for success. Every teacher hired, every initiative introduced and every upgrade to our facilities is initiated with scholars in mind.

I am honored to serve as principal of Legacy Early College Middle School. It is truly a privilege to serve a school family where parents, scholars, and teachers care for each other and strive to build positive relationships that support academic and social growth.

I thank you for entrusting your scholar with our team at Legacy, and I can’t wait for the new school year and our collective work to put every scholar to and through college.

Once again, welcome! Please call us at 864-248-0646 if you need anything. Let’s make this year the best ever!

Scholars First,

College Tracking

LECMS scholars are preparing to be college-ready from the moment they enroll.

Our middle school scholars are taught specific college-ready study, organization and time-management skills which are often taught to college freshmen in "Freshman-Success" courses. Your Legacy scholar will have the opportunity to advance her program of study according to her own individual strengths, even going to the grade-levels above her own to take courses for which she qualifies. Since every scholar at Legacy is a college-bound scholar, we don't believe in a one-size-fits-all curriculum.
