About Us » Our School

Our School

Legacy Preparatory Academy is a tuition FREE K-9 public charter school.

The campus is located in Woods Cross, Utah. Our elementary building serves students in grades K-6. Our Junior High Building serves students in grades 7-9. 


It was these ideas that spurred our new group on for many weeks, months, and long nights.  We researched, debated, and wrote our ideas into the school’s charter. Once it was passed by the State School Board, it was then ready for implementation.  


After many weeks of public information recruitment meetings, we cobbled together a group of 50 parents ready to trust the plan and make it happen. After thousands of volunteer hours, personal funds expended, numerous rocky bumps, and many witnessed miracles, our dream became a reality. 


We had the greatest group of volunteers who gave everything to provide an education for their children and thousands of other kids in the community. We had the most amazing teachers and staff who also gave their all to make order out of chaos. Legacy Preparatory Academy was truly a labor of love for every person involved.  



Maren Hilbig, Founder Legacy Preparatory Academy



Legacy Preparatory Academy will cultivate intellectual and moral virtue according to the classically based pillars of truth, goodness, and beauty. 


Legacy Preparatory Academy is committed to providing a culture where students become productive and valuable members of their communities and world. We believe high expectations, hard work, and enthusiasm are essential to achieving academic excellence and good character. These values instilled at Legacy Prep and research-proven curricula give our students the confidence to achieve anything! 


Legacy Preparatory Academy builds the foundation of knowledge and critical thinking skills necessary for children to become independent learners for life.

We do this in several ways:

  • Provide a classically based curriculum that is thorough and challenging
  • Integrate fine arts to enhance learning
  • Teach the value of public virtue to promote respect
  • Engage parents as real partners to share in enriching student education
  • Honor each child as an individual and foster their innate curiosity and desire to learn
