About Our School


Legion Preparatory Academy has opened its doors in 2017. Back then it was an K-8th School only. In 2018 the school expanded to cover also high school classes. Legion is a private academy located in Fort Worth, Texas, United States. We it offers programs for Kindergarten through Twelfth Grade students drawn from the DFW metro-plex. It is accredited by the National Association of Private Schools.

Legion Preparatory Academy is ACCREDITED by the National Association of Private Schools (NAPS).
NAPS is “an independent educational agency founded for the purpose of recognizing educational excellence in the private and non-traditional educational environment.” It is a national organization headquartered in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

According to the website for the National Association of Private Schools:

  • Accreditation reflects a school’s “trustworthiness in the process of providing a quality educational program.”
  • Schools accredited by NAP “have demonstrated a history of providing their students with a quality educational program… [that] seeks to meet or exceed state and national traditional educational guidelines in their preschool through high school educational programs.”
  • Schools accredited by NAPS “are concerned about both the mastery of basic academic skills and the character development of each child in their school.”

WHAT DOES ACCREDITED MEAN?

NAPS explains, “The word accredit is an interesting word related to the same root word as credible, or believable. An accredited institution therefore is one that can be believed. It has earned the approval of those who know it. In other words, accreditation means, “This institution is fulfilling its stated purpose with integrity and excellence.” The process of accreditation involves a careful scrutiny and approval of a school’s qualifications by other professionals. Just as “surgeons are approved by other surgeons [and] lawyers are approved by other lawyers, educators [should be approved] by other educators.” The NAPS evaluation is conducted by peers of the private school seeking accreditation who understand the “basic philosophy and uniqueness of an individual school” such as Legion Preparatory Academy. According to NAPS, “Quality private educational institutions and their staff[s] deserve the merited recognition of their peers.” The accreditation of Legion Preparatory Academy gives parents the assurance of an educational program that has not only stood the test of time, but has provided a consistent level of excellence. Parents can also be confident that the curriculum used by Legion Preparatory Academy has been CERTIFIED by the National Association of Private Schools’ Curriculum Evaluation Committee.
