The Purpose of Legacy Christian High School (LCHS) is to raise up leaders to influence and transform our future.

Legacy Christian High School will be an independent, faith-based, comprehensive high school in south Placer County offering excellence in faith-based education, esteemed faculty and exemplary facilities to inspire students to become global, transformative leaders.

An exciting new choice!

In November 2015, a group of forward-thinking leaders in the south Placer region recognized this gap and began pursuing a solution. An initial meeting with Gil Stiglitz resulted in an introduction to Dr. Clifford Daugherty, the President of Valley Christian School in San Jose, CA. By visiting Valley Christian High School in February 2016, these leaders were able to observe in action, within a different community, the desire God put on their hearts for Placer County.

With the vision crystallized and the mission set before them, Placer Christian School Association (Placer CSA), a California 501(c)3 non-profit organization, was incorporated in October 2016. The mission—to build facilities and to launch a comprehensive Christian high school in south Placer County—had officially begun.

Drawing upon the experience and awe-inspiring successes of Valley Christian School in San Jose and also Valor Christian High School in Highlands Ranch, Colorado (modeled after Valley Christian), the Placer CSA’s Board of Directors created a blueprint for transforming their vision into reality through local partnerships and a commitment to this vision of excellence. The school’s name, Legacy Christian High School, is rooted in this vision and reflects the ongoing positive impact its students will have in our community, our nation, and the world for years to come.

At LCHS, students will be offered exemplary college preparatory experiences in academics, athletics, and the arts—all of which will be grounded in the Judeo-Christian values of truth, faith, integrity, and service. Students from families of all faiths and beliefs, ethnicities and cultures who are open to accepting a Christian-based teaching perspective will be welcome.

The Legacy Christian High School governing values are:

Legacy Christian High School will offer servant leadership experiences that promote future education and employment opportunities. Legacy Christian High School will help students develop solid moral and ethical values, while preparing them academically for higher education and beyond.
