Profile of a Legacy Graduate

Introduction

The Profile of a Legacy Graduate represents our model graduate. This profile was not created as a graduation requirement or a student self-assessment standard, but rather as a tool for accomplishing our mission and vision. Legacy Christian Academy recognizes that achieving this profile in the lives of LCA students is impossible without the commitment of the students and the help of the Holy Spirit. Legacy will partner with parents; create an academically excellent, Christ-centered environment; provide opportunities for growth; and plant the seeds for God to transform and work in the lives of our students. In the same way that God has created all of us with different gifts and abilities, we understand that students will reflect this Profile of a Legacy Graduate in their own unique, God-given way.

Legacy Christian Academy desires and will work toward producing graduates who are biblically grounded, disciples of Christ; God-glorifying, Spirit-led worshippers; intellectually prepared, accomplished learners; morally disciplined, students of character; and faithful and courageous, servant leaders.
