Legacy Christian Academy is a product of prayer, vision & community. We are happy to share our story, vision & direction. It is a new era for Christian education in Southeast Texas. Legacy Christian Academy’s foundation lies in the legacy of our Savior, Jesus Christ, and an obedient founding church and Pastor. We are blessed with the opportunity to continue this wonderful mission as we partner with many of the area churches, as well as local businesses, to build on an extraordinary foundation.

Legacy is committed to outstanding education & service to the youth.

Legacy consists of a board made up of parents, administrators, businessmen & women, community leaders & faithful hearts & minds. This allows for a more powerful opportunity for our students with more resources than ever before.  When students graduate, they will have connections to educational organizations & community involvement as well as the cutting-edge technological know-how. Our Christian community has embraced the Legacy Christian Academy concept & major strides have been made to this point. But this is just the beginning!

As an accredited educational institution, Legacy Christian Academy serves the greater Beaumont – Port Arthur area with a Christian education with statewide & national attention. Our students are equipped to graduate with the world at their fingertips & His Kingdom as their destination. With a safe, secure learning environment, parents can rest assured that their students are gaining practice in faith, culture, discipline, and a wealth of knowledge.
