At Legacy Traditional Schools, we believe there is no limit to what a student can achieve in life when a great foundational education is forged and a strong character is cultivated. Our non-profit network of tuition-free, A-rated public schools was founded on these principles in 2007, and they continue to be the cornerstone of our mission to build lifelong learners and good citizens.
