Education

We shall provide a safe and loving environment for students to learn. We shall seek excellence in all that we do. We shall work with parents/guardians to prepare and equip their student for college, his or her future vocation, and the rest of his or her life.

Service

With Christ as our example, students shall learn the power of serving others with humility. We shall teach students to look not only to their own interests, but also to the interests of others.

Character

Students and staff shall strive to live like Jesus Christ and be a light at home, at LCA, and in their community.  Whether in LCA or out, students and staff shall be challenged to honor those in authority, be characterized by the fruit of the Spirit, behave responsibly, treat everyone respectfully, and excel in all they do, for the glory of God.

 

Faith

Students shall receive Biblical training to help them grow in their knowledge and faith in Jesus Christ. By God’s grace, students and families shall come to know Jesus Christ as their Savior and shall communicate God’s love to those with whom they interact.

Vision

Legacy Christian Fellowship exists by God’s grace and for His glory to promote unity and provide growth

opportunities for the body of Christ, so that members will become actively involved in serving their

communities while seeking to lead lives to Christ. Legacy Christian Academy exists to educate and prepare students for higher learning and Christian life, while instilling fundamental principles of spiritual growth, evangelism, and Christian service.

Mission

With the Bible as the foundation of our faith and all learning, LCA shall honor and serve

God by providing a Christ-centered educational environment that is an extension of the

Christian home that is accessible to a broad cross-section of the Christian community, that meets the needs of students with varying scholastic aptitudes through a balanced emphasis on academic excellence and continual spiritual growth and service, and in doing so is widely recognized and respected.

Code of Conduct

As a student of Legacy Christian Academy, I hereby commit to honoring God by living a lifestyle of integrity, and respect for my peers, authority, and property of others. LCA's goal is to train students in a system of values that will carry forward in their life as a manner of living a life of high integrity. The spirit of this Honor Code is based on God's principles for successful living. It is of paramount importance for all members of the school community (students, parents, faculty, and staff) that each support these principles universally.

An honorable community is more than a commitment to follow a set of rules. It is a commitment to a Godly lifestyle. It is our sincere hope that all of our students will commit themselves to live out this honorable lifestyle for the rest of their lives.

The Honor Code in Legacy's Upper School is the following: Each student is morally obligated to refrain from cheating, lying, or misrepresenting the truth, and stealing.

Cheating: The act of giving, receiving, or attempting to give or receive unauthorized help that could result in an unfair advantage in completing academic work. Each student is to assume that all work is to be done individually unless a teacher specifies otherwise. Cheating includes plagiarism. Plagiarism is taking someone else's work, words, or ideas and submitting them as your own.

Examples of cheating include, but not limited to:

  • Copying information or answers from someone else's work, homework, projects, reports, essays, quizzes, or tests.

  • Allowing others to copy your work or doing their work for them.

  • Turning in an assignment that was to be an independent assignment but used the assistance of others.

  • Giving or taking assistance of any kind while taking a quiz or test. This includes glancing, talking or bodily gestures during an examination.

  • Using unauthorized help such as cheat sheets, notes, books, formulas or information in calculators or computers.

  • Discussing a quiz or test with another student who has not taken the quiz or test.

  • Direct copying of phrases from another source.

  • Direct copying of key phrases from another source with minor changes such as verb tense or the order of the words.

  • Using another person's ideas or words without proper citations.

  • Using workbooks from previous years with answers written in them.

 

Lying or Misrepresenting the Truth: Any action, statement, or appearance with the intention to falsify, deceive, misrepresent, or deny facts or truth. 

Examples of lying or misrepresenting the truth include, but not limited to: 

  • Missing class for any purpose other than your given reason. 

  • Making a false statement or leaving out pertinent information in an attempt to gain an unfair advantage.

  • Denying fault or responsibility for events in which you participated.

  • Covering or lying for another student that violates the honor code.

  • Receiving permission from a teacher to do a specific task and deciding to do another. 

  • Withholding information pertinent to the ability of the administration to make good decisions. 

  • Forgery 

Stealing: Taking or attempting to take the property of others without their consent. 

Examples of stealing may include, but not limited to: 

  • Taking or borrowing the property of another person without permission even if

      the intention is to return the item.

  • Stealing copies of tests or quizzes. 

  • Finding something and making little or no effort in finding the rightful owner. 

  • Removal of academic materials without permission from a teacher. 

Suspected Honor Code Violations 

  • Discuss the potential violation with that student and give him/her the opportunity of turning himself/herself into the administration.

  • Go to an administrator or teacher with the suspected violation. 

 

Students of LCA should always assume that the Honor Code is in effect. Violation of the Honor Code on or off campus will have consequences and these consequences are listed within our Discipline Policy. Students violating the honor code while holding any position of student leadership will be removed from leadership for the remainder of that academic school year. A student may submit a written appeal for the following year.

Extended Care Program

LCA offers an Extended Care Program on days when the school is in session for students who are currently enrolled in the school’s academic program. Parents/Guardians must sign in their student(s) when entering Before Care and sign out their student(s) when exiting After Care.

 

Before Care:

Before Care is available 7:00-7:45 for students 3 years old through 12th grade at a cost of $8 per hour per student.  It is billed in 30 minute increments.

 

After Care:

After care is available 3:30-6:00 for students 3 years old through 12th grade at a cost of $8 per hour per student 3 years old through 6th grade.   Billing is in 30 minute increments.   There is no charge for After Care for students in grades 7-12.

 

The program closes promptly at 6:00 p.m. Parents/Guardians are requested to be on time when picking up their student(s). There is a late fee of $1.00 for every 5-minute delay after 6:00 p.m. Repeated delays will result in the removal of your student from the program.

 

 * Please provide your student with a snack for Before Care & After Care.

 

Please note:  Any student, regardless of their age/grade, not picked up by 3:30 p.m. must report to After Care, applicable fees will apply.

 

PAYMENT:

The Finance Office will track the time and charges incurred for Extended Care.

Charges will be posted in each families FACTS account by the 5th of each month.    Payment is due by the last day of the month.  Payments can be made on line or be sent into the school office.

 

There is an additional $10 late fee if the bill is not paid after 60 days.

 

At this time LCA does not have Extended Care available when school is closed for inclement weather.

If LCA opens late due to inclement weather, there is no Before Care.

If LCA closes early due to inclement weather, there is no After Care.
