As Director of the Legacy Early College 4K Center, I am honored to welcome you to our school! We are so excited to begin this journey, and we are very eager to meet and form relationships with our families.  Legacy continues to build a reputation of excellence and we have the distinct privilege of helping our scholars begin a year earlier now in a new, state-of-the-art 4K school!

Legacy’s mission is clear: every scholar to and through college. In our 4K Center, this means rigorous academics and high expectations will be the norm.  We will have two certified teachers in each class, with each class capped at 20 scholars.  With the assistance of First Steps of South Carolina, teachers will receive consistent training in literacy best practices.  In math, our 4K scholars will use the same Eureka Math curriculum our elementary school uses. 

We all work as a team to build a positive school culture to show our scholars that they are a part of the larger Legacy community. When scholars walk into our doors, they know that we have high expectations for them. Academically, emotionally, and socially we have adopted the best practices to ensure that our scholars’ needs are met. 

Legacy Early College 4K Center partners with First Steps 4K to offer free, quality, four-year-old kindergarten to families.  As a First Steps 4K provider, our school commits to providing safe, healthy classrooms and early learning experiences for every child. By choosing First Steps 4K, you are preparing your child for success in school and life.  All SC First Steps 4K providers support developmental milestones that meet state standards for school readiness.

Once again, I am so excited to start this journey with you. Our family looks forward to welcoming our scholars on Wednesday, August 11th. I am confident that we will have a great year full of learning! We thank you for entrusting Legacy Early College 4K Center with your child, and we want to ensure you that we will always do what is best for our scholars. Please look for further updates at the beginning of June. Let’s work together to make this a fantastic year!

Scholars first,

Scholars will develop the foundation of literacy skills and basic knowledge that they need to be kindergarten ready. 

It is important for them to develop their social and emotional skills.  We want them to be as prepared as possible on their educational journey so that they are successful.
