The Best Start
Legacy Christian Academy Named "Best Private School"

At Legacy Christian Academy, students are challenged at all levels to be the best version of themselves - and that's just one of the reasons why Legacy has again been named "Best Private School" by readers of The Signal.
Right now, the campus is preparing for Kindergarten, Middle School and High School enrollment for the 2023-24 school year. Parents and caregivers will have an opportunity to see how the all-inclusive, Christ-centered, family-oriented Valencia campus sets the tone for their accelerated academics in Kindergarten and carries the tradition through high school.
During the campus's info nights, you'll discover how Legacy's accelerated academics are comprehensive and systematic. Every aspect of a Legacy education builds a solid foundation for students to become confident, capable learners who can think critically, problem solve and take initiative. These skills are applied in and out of the classroom; Legacy learners regularly perform acts of service for their community.
From lower-grade small-group rotations for reading and math that foster additional growth and core-concept reinforcement to internships and an opportunity to earn college credits at Legacy High, LCA's small student:teacher ratio allows for differentiated individualized instruction so that each child has all the support they need to thrive.
Learn more via a private tour or call to register for upcoming information nights: Kindergarten (October 27), Middle School (November 2) and High School (October 20).

Connect Classroom Education with what Kids Care about with The Master's University Tutoring for Grades 6-12
Oftentimes, students see education as disconnected from the things they really care about. This leaves them discouraged and disengaged.
But at The Master's University, our tutors know what it's like to study a subject deeply because they care about it passionately as an expression of their love for the Lord. Their desire is to help students see the connection between the things they're currently studying in the classroom and the things they care about most.
Dr. Abner Chou, president of TMU, says, "We believe every subject must be captured for the glory of Christ. And when one is so consumed with what they are learning, they inevitably desire to teach others. That is the heart behind the tutoring program. It is the natural outflow of how we represent Christ to the community in what we do."
Through individualized, one-on-one sessions, committed tutors guide students in taking the knowledge they gain from class and channeling it into developing discernment, enabling students to think critically and engage proactively with the issues of everyday life. Because TMU tutors' own education at The Master's University is designed to build wisdom in all areas of life, they are well equipped to apply that same holistic view of education to tutoring.
