We are a fully accredited, non-profit, K4-12 school that provides effective learning in a safe, Christ-centered environment. Legacy brings over 25 years of experience in offering Christian education in Alamogordo to provide a true alternative for the community. The vast majority of our students not only graduate, but continue on to either college or careers in the military. We provide an expert staff, small class sizes (with an average of a 12:1 student-to-teacher ratio), and individualized instruction to help students reach their fullest potential.
Legacy Christian Academy is fully accredited through the State of New Mexico and the Association of Christian Teachers and Schools (ACTS). Accreditation is the tool to monitor, assess, and evaluate the standards and quality of the education a student receives. Because of the accountability related to the accreditation process, students and families can trust that the education they are paying for is both valuable and worthwhile.
While a student who attends an accredited school is well on his or her way to receiving a quality education, parents should remember that a school's accreditation does not automatically guarantee a student's success. It is up to the individual student to make the most out of the education he or she is receiving!
Here at Legacy we use a combination of well-known, approved curriculum materials. We offer an academic curriculum aligned with national reading, math, and science standards with a Christ-centered focus. Every student in grades K5-12 is assessed using the DIBELS Test (for early math and literacy skills) and the Terra Nova Test, and results are ranked on national percentiles. We use textbooks from A BEKA or Bob Jones University that support our Christian focus and values.
Legacy Christian Academy offers physical education for all grade levels and a competitive athletic program for 5th grade and up. We currently have award-winning Basketball, Volleyball, and Track teams.
Legacy is a strong supporter of the New Mexico Statutes Annotated 22-8-23.8, and we both encourage and support all students that would like to participate in any public school extracurricular activities.
Music & Performing Arts
Legacy Christian Academy offers quality music and performing arts programs for all grade levels, K4 through 12th grade. Elementary students are free to participate in the Legacy Elementary Choir and several community performances throughout the school year which combine musical talent with dramatic productions. Music students are also given an annual opportunity to audition for All-State Choir.
Secondary students are able to participate in our Band program and offer concerts throughout the community or in our Praise Band program where they serve both our school and the surrounding community through worship leadership.
