Athletics. Legacy’s Fitness Program, introduces and creates foundations of overall athleticism in a fun, positive, and physically invigorating environment. Led by certified teachers, your child will participate in 30-50 minutes of age-appropriate physical exercise four days a week. Activities will range from strength and aerobic conditioning to individual and team competitions. Our fitness program is designed specifically to develop discipline, work ethic, integrity, leadership, teamwork, and character. Improving physical health and skills improves a child’s self-image, increases confidence and energy, and improves mental toughness and the ability to overcome adversity. While these attributes will likely lead to success on the playing field, more importantly, they will carry into all aspects of your child’s life.

Nutrition. Good nutritional habits must feed both the mind and the body. So Legacy Traditional School makes a point to incorporate health in the classroom as well as the lunchroom. Wellness education may include topics like portion sizes, making wise food choices, and the nutrients we need. Then we back it up with a well-balanced school lunch program. LTS prepares and cooks all meals onsite in a state-of-the-art kitchen to provide healthy mid-day meals for our students.
