Student Life

Front Page 2-4

At Legacy Preparatory Christian Academy, our desire is that our Electives, Clubs, Fine Arts, Athletic Programs and all other extracurricular activities fully support our school mission and statement of philosophy.  To that end the purpose of any extracurricular activity at Legacy Prep is:

  • To help students grow in their spiritual walk with Christ
  • To help students identify and cultivate their God given talents and abilities
  • To provide each student with an opportunity to participate in extracurricular activities
  • To learn and demonstrate Christ-like character and behavior during interaction with other groups outside of the school

We believe that extracurricular activities are a vital resource for the training of young minds and hearts.  These activities provide opportunities outside of the classroom for students to practice and experience biblical principles taught at home and in the school.  We expect that through these parent/school sponsored activities, our children will learn:

  • The benefits of and proper constraints of competition
  • The right rewards for hard work and preparation or lack thereof
  • How to submit to and follow scriptural authority subjecting personal interests to those of the leader and the team
  • The benefits of working together in unity under leadership and the appropriate expression of individual talent for the benefit of the team
  • The value of camaraderie and the friendships that result
  • The value of experiencing both victories and defeats
  • How to celebrate or to express disappointment with Christ-like dignity (good sportsmanship) demonstrating honor and respect to teachers, sponsors, coaches, parents, officials and other competitors
  • The benefits of exposing ourselves to new challenges
