Who We Are...
We are a school alive with interactive learning, teachers equipped with current technology, and students engaged in a way that motivates, empowers and meets their individual educational needs.
Legacy Academy is a tuition free, K-8 charter school serving families from Elbert and Douglas counties. We are a 1:1 iPad school, meaning that every student and staff member has an iPad Air to use during the school year. Each of our classrooms has access to current technology and the staff is continually searching for new and innovative approaches to education.
Our school serves approximately 400 full time students, along with about 80 homeschool students through a part-time enrichment program.
Legacy Academy was Colorado's first iSchool.
In 2011, through a partnership with iSchool Campus, the school completed a technology overhaul and put hundreds of Apple devices into the hands of students and staff. Legacy is a "One-to-One" environment meaning that each and every student (K-8) has his or her own iPad Air for use during the school year. Students and their parents are responsible for the iPads throughout the year and each device is managed/monitored by the school.
are used on a daily basis and have added a level of enthusiasm and innovation to our learning environment. In addition to individual iPads, our students also have access to 3D printers, iMac computer labs, blazing fast internet, a student radio station, green-screen video production,
and Google Apps
for Education which allows our teachers and students to collaborate in school, at home, or anywhere with a wifi connection.
Students are encouraged to participate outside of the classroom in clubs, activities, and athletics. Please visit the athletics and clubs page on our website for more information about sports options for 6th-8th grade students, and after-school clubs or activities that may be appealing to your elementary or middle school student(s). We are always looking for new ideas and welcome your input and assistance. Feel free to contact us if you have input or if you would be willing to help!
