Legacy Academy

Located at 2123 Fairmount Avenue, the Legacy Academy was founded in the Fall of 2017, as an
extension of Richmond Cycling Corps’ promise of constant evolution toward relevant outreach. Coupled with an astute awareness and implementation of trauma informed care, the Academy is founded on mentorship-based education and Lockean Principles towards academic curriculum: Experimentation in learning; Wisdom and virtue as priority pursuits; Close pupil to educator ratio; Physical Development in tandem with development of the mind. The academy’s students represent high school youth who are chronically absent, failing, suspended, or expelled from traditional education systems. The total number of students will never exceed 12, and will always sustain at least a 6:1 student/educator ratio. The official school sport/activity of the Legacy Academy is cycling (road, BMX, Downhill, Cross Country), with participation as a mountain bike race team in the Virginia High School Mountain Bike Series (VAHS)
