Parenting is rarely easy, but when it comes to selecting your child's school, things can seem downright overwhelming. "It's not an overstatement to say that this is one of the most important choices a parent will make," sympathizes Tim "Coach" Borruel, co-founder and superintendent emeritus of Legacy Christian Academy, a pedagogical innovator with 35 years experience developing educational programs for Santa Clarita.

For an increasing number of parents, the "public school down the street" isn't the top choice for where their children get their educational start.

It was a letter from her child's Honors math teacher that really drove an important point home for local pediatric dentist Kathy Mulcahey. "We received a wonderful, heartfelt letter from our son's high-school Honors Algebra 2/Trig teacher that really touched my husband and me," says the Legacy Christian Academy alumni mom.
