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.

Diane Keller

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!

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.
