The mission of Legacy Christian School is to partner with Christian parents in providing a family-centered, biblically integrated, college/career worthy education to prepare students to go into the world as disciples of Christ.
The vision of Legacy Christian School is to develop students who are equipped with the tools necessary to be valuable contributors in the formation of a godly society, to model strong family values, and to be disciples of Christ.
Legacy’s GUIDING PRINCIPLES AND CORE VALUES
LEGACY’S STATEMENT OF FAITH
WHAT IS UNIVERSITY MODEL®?
(UM®) combines the best attributes of traditional schooling with the best attributes of homeschooling and integrates them into one model. The result is a quality, cost-effective, college-preparatory education that gives parents more time for imparting their own faith and values to their children. In partnership with one another, parents and the school work together toward a mutual goal: to produce wholesome, competent, and virtuous followers of Christ who will change the world in their generation.
Due to expected growth, we are taking employment applications for the 2022/23 school year in all subject areas.
If you are interested in teaching, please send a resume to firstname.lastname@example.org.

Diane is a native Texan though she lived on the outskirts of New Orleans for 15 years resulting in a love for Tex-Mex and Cajun-inspired cuisine! She earned a bachelor’s degree in education at LSU and a master’s degree in special education at Lamar University as an Educational Diagnostician for testing children with learning differences. Diane has served in Christian education for over 20 years and Legacy is the 2nd secondary Christian school she helped found. She is most excited about the University Model where secondary students take challenging courses of study that are set in a university-type-scheduling of classes—3 days a week while outside of class, the students work to develop sound study habits and the kind of strong work ethic they will need for success in college. Diane has been married to Larry for 40 years, and they have three married daughters and six grandchildren who they love to spoil!
Courtney is a 2000 graduate from Brenham Christian Academy, and a 2004 graduate from the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor, where she met her wonderful husband, Josh. After receiving her Master’s in Christian Counseling from Houston Baptist University, she became a Licensed Professional Counselor and practiced at the counseling center at Houston’s First Baptist Church. Courtney is a speaker and writer and has had the privilege of journeying with women through her Bible study, Preoccupied with Promise. For the past four years, she has been a co-teacher/parent at an accredited University-Model School in Houston. She is passionate about this model of schooling for the time it affords families to have conversations they would otherwise not have time for or would have instead with others outside of the home. Team Strong is made up of Josh, Courtney, Hunter (a Lego master), and Paisley (a tiny event planner). She and Josh count the discipleship call of Deuteronomy 6 in their home the most thrilling job description of all time.
