About Us


The mission of the Legacy Academy is to engage and inspire middle school youth to achieve academic and social success.

Who We Will Serve

The Legacy Academy seeks to serve the following target student populations across Santa Clara County:

  • Students who have been involved in the juvenile justice or foster care system
  • Students who have been suspended or expelled from previous schools due to significant behavioral problems
  • Students who have been identified by their parents or School officials as showing signs of academic failure and/or behavioral issues at school or within their community.

These are the students who, through repeated failure, often believe that the future holds nothing for them. The Legacy Academy is specifically committed to serving the youth identified above – those who have been involved in the Juvenile Justice or Foster Care System, as well as others who have social and academic challenges. Through a cohesive and comprehensive middle school experience, The Legacy Academy will provide the supports necessary for these youth to transform their experience, in turn changing the course of their legacy within our community.
