Principal's Message

 

Dear Parents/Guardians,

As we enter into the 2016 – 2017 school year, we are excited to welcome our new and returning students and families! I am honored to join and lead the Legacy Early College High School team. 

Students, prepare to work hard, be resilient, and remain focused as we continue this journey to and through college. Come with an open heart and open mind so that you can fully benefit from the exceptional learning experience Legacy has to offer. We are here for you and look forward to building strong and lasting relationships.

Our dedicated and caring team of teachers is committed to providing students with engaging and personalized learning experiences through virtual learning platforms, accelerated learning programs and other wraparound services. Our teachers are committed to planning, preparing, and executing rigorous lessons that challenge students to think critically and engage meaningfully in content.  

Our unique Early College program allows students the opportunity to participate in tuition-free college courses at Greenville Technical College and North Greenville University upon maintaining a high GPA (grade-point average), consistently exhibiting executive skills and meeting standardized test requirements. 

Legacy Early College High School will be known as a school of excellence where our teachers, parents, and students work together to provide unwavering support for our scholars. We believe this community of encouragement will ensure our students achieve academic excellence, refined leadership skills and build lasting relationships preparing them for a lifetime of fitness, wellness, and college and career success.

Onward and Upward, 

Noemi Pavon,
