“We are excited about the opportunity to grow our campus. With all that is going on in our country, parents want to be more involved with their child's education and we are happy to be able to accommodate that trend through the addition of classroom space. Only God could successfully navigate an expansion like this during these difficult economic times, and we are thrilled that He is at work on our behalf,” stated Audra May, Legacy Head Administrator.
The expansion project, designed by Pete Ed Garrett of Studio Red Architects, encompasses 21 new permanent classrooms, a multi-purpose space, additional offices, workrooms, conference rooms, break areas, and more. Enhanced fencing and security, improved traffic flow, updated signage, beautification projects, and expanded parking are also included in the construction plans.

According to Miles Freeman, Legacy Prep Board Treasurer, “The new academic building will provide approximately 30,000 square feet of new learning space.
