Child Development

TheUniversity-Model® strives to keep parents confident, competent, encouraged, and involved with their children, to reinforce values the parents are on record as teaching in the home, and to enforce the behavior and discipline policies of the school from a character development point of view.

My daughter has learning issues and gets frustrated easily. The UM has helped her gain confidence in herself and has dramatically improved her reading and math skills. She has made great friends who have encouraged her along with staff members who support her. She feels loved and wanted at CLPS.Leanne B. | Christian Life Preparatory School
Legacy has been so wonderful for our family. It has meant so much to me to have this opportunity for my children. My son went from being shy and insecure to a confident and out-going boy. Our communication skills as a family have grown, and we learn each day how to show one another grace and love. We love this model!Misty H. | Legacy Christian Academy
