LEGACY CLASSICAL CHRISTIAN ACADEMY (formerly Destiny Christian Academy) is a certified University-Model School in the North Fort Worth, supporting families seeking to fulfill the biblical mandate to train children up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord. (Ephesians 6:4). We count it a privilege to come alongside families who desire to be “in the world, but not of it” as commanded in Scripture. (1 John 2:15, Romans 12:1-2)
Highly qualified teachers provide instruction on the Legacy Classical campus two to three days a week. The remaining weekdays are spent at home completing reinforcement assignments and projects. Parents and/or private tutors attend valuable training workshops to help ensure quality mentoring and learning at home. In general, students spend one to two hours on at-home assignments for each hour they spend in LCCA classrooms.
Our faculty, families and staff are committed to helping our students develop a Christ-centered worldview as they engage in academically advanced curriculum. This is the essence of a classical education. We adhere to this model through a structure called the Trivium, a Latin term meaning “the three ways” or “the three roads,” which form the foundation of an individual’s formal education: grammar, logic and rhetoric. Grammar is the mechanics of a language; logic (or dialectic) is the mechanics of thought and analysis; rhetoric is the use of language to instruct and persuade. In addition, we employ the progymnasmata throughout lower school and upper school instruction. The progymnasmata are preliminary writing exercises that introduce students to basic rhetorical concepts and strategies.
Current families may begin re-enrolling students for the 2015-2016 academic year on February 12, 2015. Referred families may apply for enrollment beginning Monday, February 23, 2015. We will begin accepting applications from other interested families Monday, March 16, 2015.
