Registration is a rolling process until classrooms reach capacity. Wait lists are only started once a classroom is full during open enrollment.



When it is your designated time to enroll, click on the “REGISTER” box on the top right corner of our website.  Current families will log-in. New families will click “register” under the login box to start the process.

An online, non-refundable fee of $125 must be paid in order for enrollment to be complete. A student’s class placement is not reserved until the registration fee is paid in full.

Once you submit your information, Legacy’s enrollment team will review all applications and contact all families within one week. Based on the timestamp information, you will be informed if your child is enrolled or if they have been placed on the waiting list. Waiting lists are only instituted once classrooms fill during open enrollment.


To maintain low student-teacher ratios, enrollment is capped as follows:

Preschool (3 years old by Oct 15th): 36
Pre-K (4 years old by Oct 15th): 72
Jr-K (5 years old by Nov 15th): 54
K (5 years old by July 31st): 36
Grades 1-5: 108

If a classroom has been filled after open enrollment, you may place your child on a waitlist by providing your name, child’s DOB and best phone number to contact you. If a spot opens up, we will begin contacting people on the wait list in the order in which they are received.


School tuition may be paid weekly, monthly, by semester, or for the entire year upfront through ACH. Once enrolled, please enter your banking information online through your Sycamore account.

Tuition is not altered due to illness, vacation, days off, weather, holidays, or other unforeseen circumstances. Families with more than one student enrolled receive a 10% sibling discount.

Tuition includes classroom fees. Before and/or after care can be added for additional fees, outlined on our tuition rate card. Breakfast and lunch are offered for additional fees, outlined below.

At the start of each school year, a $150/family security fee will be charged. This covers the ongoing security improvements the school is undertaking, including cameras, secured entries, and more.



The Legacy School Parent Advisory Board provides tuition assistance for families who apply and qualify. Learn more here:

Legacy School also has a partnership with “The Children’s Scholarship Fund,” which provides scholarships to families who apply and qualify directly with their organization. The Children’s Scholarship Fund was founded in 1998 to give children from low-income families the opportunity of private education. Applications for scholarships generally open each February. For further details regarding CSF, please visit their website:

Additionally, in 2023, the Nebraska State Legislature passed The Opportunity Scholarships Act (LB753), which is a scholarship tax credit program. Taxpayers can contribute to Opportunity Scholarships of Nebraska, a state-approved scholarship granting organization, which then will use those dollars to provide scholarships to eligible students.

Legacy School students wear the required school uniform every day.  Uniforms are available for purchase online through “French Toast.”  To access our school uniform shop, enter our school code QS5RPKB.

Our uniforms include an embroidered navy shirt and khaki pants, shorts, or skirt.  Other options include a white blouse, jumper, and sweater. Tennis shoes or rubber-soled shoes are required to be worn for safety purposes.  Please do not send your child in cowboy boots or flip-flops.  We ask that girls please wear shorts, pants or tights under dresses or skirts.

School spirit wear may be worn on the last school day of your child’s week. Friday for M-F classes and Thursday for T/Th Preschool. This includes T-shirts and sweatshirts with the Legacy mascot and any pants of choice (jeans, sweatpants, leggings, etc.). These are available for purchase at the school.


Your child will have access to our farm-to-table cafeteria each day.

If your student is enrolled in before care and would like breakfast, it is available in the cafeteria at 8:00 AM for $3.25. If your child will be having lunch at school, you have two options. Students may bring a cold lunch from home or purchase a school lunch for $4.00. Menus are available in your Sycamore account.

You will need to preorder meals by the 20th of the month prior to the following month (i.e. Sept 20th for October). This is required to keep costs down, to reduce food waste, and to maintain supply levels.

To preorder meals each month, log onto your “Sycamore” account via the link in the upper right corner of the website. Go to: My Account | Cafeteria | Orders | Meal Orders (tab). Then, enter the quantity of meals to be ordered. Select meal from drop down box, and update when complete. Click on the green button to apply a meal payment.


All students except for our 3-year-old Preschool students can take advantage of Before or After Care. This is not a drop-in program. Parents must sign up for these options before the first day of school in the fall. Before Care opens at 7:00am and After Care closes promptly at 5:30pm. Fees are outlined on our tuition rate card.

After Care is special in that students will participate in various clubs while they are here. Students can select from these clubs and more: Art, Library, Board Games, Puzzles, Sports, Science, Technology, Music, Dance, and more.

Extended Care is available for select days when school is closed due to inservice or holidays. Before and After School Parents must sign up for care on these days ahead of time. Sign-up forms are emailed one month prior.

More details are provided prior to the start of the school year.


The Parent Advisory Board coordinates an annual fundraising effort to help fund their support of Legacy School students. Unlike other private schools, there is not a donation requirement when enrolling. Families are simply asked to help as they see fit for their situation. The PAB also coordinates other fundraising efforts that do not require additional funding from parents. Please visit the PAB page to learn more.


Every fall we host an Informational Meeting for our potential new families. Attendees hear from school founders, Kelly Pedersen and Buffy Baca, as they share their vision for the school and what to expect once enrolled. In addition, key members of the staff – like our Camp Legacy and Extended Care Directors – will be available to answer questions and lead campus tours. This is the perfect opportunity to get to know Legacy School. Learn more HERE.


Legacy uses a valet system for all Pre-K through 5th grade students for drop off and pick up. Preschool parents do not follow this protocol as they will park and walk their children to and from the classroom.

Please read the Parent Handbook for all the details around this process.


Communication between school and parent is imperative every school year. Legacy School uses multiple streams of communication to ensure parents are up to date with school protocols, general school information, and classroom news.


  • Weekly newsletter with school announcements and key dates.
  • Class-Tag emails from their teachers with classroom-specific information. Please download the “Class Tag” App on your phone. You will receive a classroom invitation at the start of the year.
  • Text notifications for important updates like weather-related school closures or last-minute announcements. Your mobile number(s) are automatically signed up to receive these notifications when you enroll. If you want to opt-out of school text notifications, please call the school.

SOCIAL: The school updates their Facebook and Instagram accounts frequently with school news and pictures of what is happening every day. Make sure you follow them to stay up to date. Additionally, the Legacy Parents run and monitor a Facebook Group. Please ask to join HERE.

ATTENDANCE: If your student will be late or absent, please contact Renee Cole, our school secretary, at When a child arrives late, they must check in with her at the front desk before heading to their classroom.
