WELCOME to the website of Legacy Christian Academy of Caseyville, IL. We are thrilled that you are looking into a Christian education for your child. Over twenty years ago my husband and I helped start Legacy Christian Academy, then known as Chapel Hill Christian School, in Fairview Heights. There were four families at our church interested in an Christian academic preschool experience for our four year olds. There were none in this area. Therefore we started our own with God’s guidance and our four preschoolers in a church classroom. The school grew and grew until we outgrew the building we were in and God provided this wonderful school building in Caseyville! God is good!

Legacy Christian Academy believes that every child is figuratively standing on a three-legged stool, as taught in the book Kingdom Education by Glen Schulz. Each leg represents the worldview taught to the child by the church, the home, and the school. If a child does not hear the same message from each of these entities, their worldview will not be built on a solid foundation, preferably that of Jesus Christ. LCA strives to partner with the home and the church to have this solid foundation for our students to stand on.

Over the years we have acquired many excellent teachers. LCA hires people that are loving, caring and nurturing. Our staff has a deep level of commitment to Christ and to this ministry. Their passion is to see their students give their lives to the Lord and show that love in obedience to His Word. That passion is fused into each subject they teach.

Using exceptional Christian curriculum, our students excel above the average student being educated in our area. We teach advanced math skills, cursive handwriting, intensive phonics, and reading to our preschool and kindergarten students. With this kind of academic foundation our students thrive, grow, and mature as they make their way from preschool through high school.

I hope you will contact us for a tour of our school. I think you will be happy with what you see in us!
