From the Founder of Legacy

Welcome to Legacy School!


In the spring of 2011, I gathered with a group of concerned parents, experienced educators and child advocates to discuss the future of several talented and bright students struggling with dyslexia and other related language-based learning differences. We shared a unified vision. Our vision was simple: children with dyslexia deserve the opportunity to succeed and flourish. As a result of our collective efforts, we created a school where teachers have the freedom to tailor their instruction in order to serve the unique learning needs of each student. When Legacy opened its doors in 2011, it became evident that the results of our efforts were far greater than we had imagined. Blessed with a beautiful 4-acre campus and highly trained and creative teachers, Legacy students are thriving. These wonderful, bright children are finally in a place where their learning style is understood and respected.

The hallmark of our program is our nurturing environment and individualized instruction. Legacy is unique in that, each student who reads below grade level receives daily, personalized 1:1 tutoring. The tutors utilize the Orton-Gillingham methodology, teaching each student to effectively decode and encode the English Language. The tutors take their time to understand the strengths and weaknesses of each Legacy student, and act as each student’s advisor and advocate.

At Legacy, we are committed to teaching the whole child, using multi-sensory teaching methods, creative instruction, and a structured curriculum focused on building basic reading, writing and mathematical skills. Our program is both highly structured and highly creative.

The children are happy to be at Legacy, they enjoy learning, and they love their teachers. Our faculty is the most dedicated, skilled and caring group of educators these students can ever hope to meet. Legacy is a special place for exceptional children and an exceptional faculty. We encourage you to come visit our campus. You can meet our pet turtles, observe a 1:1 Orton-Gillingham tutoring lesson, build a boat that floats in Science class, and practice your math facts in shaving cream. Come see for yourself how we foster a commitment to life-long learning in each of our students.
