LETTER FROM THE SUPERINTENDENT, TIM BORRUEL
It is with a grateful heart that I welcome you to the Legacy Christian Academy website. While I believe that the best introduction of all is one that includes a handshake and a warm smile, I’m pleased that you’ve taken time today to “visit” our academy via the Internet. The process of choosing a school best suited for your child is no light matter. As a parent, I know firsthand that the sheer quantity of information can prove overwhelming.
As the founder of Legacy, I’m in a blessed position to simplify this process for you by answering the most important question of all: “What makes Legacy different – and better?” Legacy’s education experts are tireless advocates for our highly-academic, college-preparatory learning environment. You will be hard pressed to find a school that places greater emphasis on preparing students for the 21st-century workplace. Technology driven and ripe with enrichment opportunities ranging from Mandarin Chinese language courses to web design classes and STEM programming, the Legacy curriculum is built to prepare our students for success in Honors and AP classes, as well as placement in the nation’s top universities like Dartmouth, Columbia and Yale.
Recently, Legacy was bestowed with a rare distinction for private, independent schools: the title of National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence. Only 50 private academies were even considered for this award in 2015. We’re grateful for the recognition and are committed to continuing the practices that earned us this national honor.
Legacy is a private, non-profit organization that exalts Christ and His Word. Our distinctly-Christian environment sows the seeds of faith and good character into the hearts, minds and practices of Legacy students. Our goal is to cultivate within our young people an academically-advanced mind and a strong heart for God. We provide the academic and spiritual environment that helps our students develop the skills to become resourceful learners, as well as spiritually-mature and character-driven individuals.
Legacy’s inspirational, state-of-the-art 30,000-square-feet facility, conveniently located in the heart of Valencia, boasts an expansive artificial-turf sporting field created to help develop strong bodies and healthy competition. Legacy is a founding member of Santa Clarita’s private/charter school athletic league and is a proud title holder in basketball, football, golf and more. Those who prefer more cultured competitive opportunities will enjoy chess, Lego-building teams and other activities in our well-appointed classrooms and learning areas.
The Legacy Christian Academy leadership invests considerable effort to provide our families with a close-knit, supportive educational community. We are honored by the sacred trust parents place in us and are committed to demonstrating daily that Legacy is a decision well made. We also strive to help integral family relationships thrive. Through the year, mother-daughter teas, father-son camping trips, a Thanksgiving Feast, Snow Day, VIP Day, academic outings and more are planned with the intention of providing a support network of like-minded families committed to their children’s academic success and spiritual growth.
I invite you to explore this site and discover the Legacy Christian Academy advantage. Better still, call today to schedule a customized tour. I’m certain that you’ll be impressed by our warm, caring teachers; low teacher-to-student ratio; WASC accreditation; classroom technology and much more. On behalf of the Legacy Christian Academy family of teachers, staff, parents and student learners: “Welcome!” We look forward to meeting you.
