Legacy's 1:13 teacher-to-student ratio helps provide individual instruction so children have a better chance of grasping difficult concepts. The exceptional and comprehensive enrichment program at Legacy has also contributed to its award-winning status.

"My son, Nick Rogers, has attended the Santa Clarita School of Performing Arts (SCSOPA) for over a year now and has had a great time. He not only has enjoyed attending the numerous courses that the school has to offer, but has struck up a great rapport with his teachers who seem to sincerely care about their students. He has also landed some acting and modeling jobs along the way! So while the school provides insight and guidance on how to attain an agent to help break into the entertainment industry, I feel that the school has also helped him with his public speaking skills and has helped to instill more overall confidence in him on and off stage!," ~ Dave Rogers
