Academics should be the first priority of every student enrolled at Legacy Charter High School. Students are placed in demanding, rigorous academic courses. Each student's program of study will have a strong academic core including mathematics, science, language arts and history. Students also develop critical technology skills needed for research, written and oral communication tools, advanced study, and job readiness. South Carolina Academic Achievement Standards are used as a basis to develop curriculum frameworks and learning standards for each academic area.
All science, mathematics, language arts and history courses listed in the LECHS Curriculum Guide are offered to all students. A studentís program of study may include additional courses not offered at LECHS. Through a dual credit program, specific Greenville Technical College academic programs and courses may be identified as part of an individual studentís program of study. These college courses are most often taken in grades 11 and 12 as an alternative to high school-level academic courses at LECHS. Those who meet certain college requirements may begin taking college courses as early as the freshman year.
