Curriculum Resources and Recommendations
Legacy Christian School allows parents to decide which curriculum is best for their children. However, we know many families have great success with the following curriculums. We encourage a literature-based approach to education.

- Teaching from Rest: A Homeschooler’s Guide to Unshakable Peace—Sarah Mackenzie and Dr. Christopher Perrin. Those who have made the decision to homeschool their children have done so out of great love for their children and a desire to provide them an excellent education in the context of a warm, enriching home. Yet so many parents (mainly mothers) who have taken up this challenge find the enterprise often full of stress, worry, and anxiety. In this practical, faith-based, and inspirational book, Sarah Mackenzie addresses these questions directly, appealing to her own study of restful learning (scholé) and her struggle to bring restful learning to her (six) children.
- Dumbing Us Down: The Hidden Curriculum of Compulsory Schooling—John Taylor Gatto. By a former New York state “Teacher of the Year,” Gatto’s book should be read by every parent in America before they blindly send their children to school. The author asserts that the true goal of childhood learning should be to discover the special gift each child has, and that passion and enthusiasm will lead to other learning pursuits. His assessment of conventional schooling and what type of citizen it produces is a wake-up call for anyone concerned about the future of this country.
