New Legacy Charter School is a small public charter school tailored to the unique and multifaceted needs of teen parents, empowering them to create a legacy of education, quality parenting, and personal success for themselves and their children. We serve pregnant and parenting high school eligible students (male and female) and their children ages 0-5 in northwest Aurora, Colorado. Moving into our sixth year, our average graduation rate has been around 80% compared to 50% nationally for teen parents.  Our Early Learning Center (ELC) is rated four out of five stars with Colorado Shines.

Statement from New Legacy Charter School – Black Lives Matter: The entire staff and leadership team at New Legacy Charter School wish to acknowledge that during these unprecedented times with a global health crisis and national unrest due to the abuse of black communities, we know there is a lot of pain, anger, fear, and sadness in our families and in the community. We are committed to supporting our families and staff with compassion and equity. Our mission is to serve one student at a time without bias or prejudice. We will continue to guide our work with respect and love in order to bring two generations of students opportunities to have a successful future and be the leaders in our community. Please reach out if we can provide you with support or resources during these distressing times. Your health, safety and mental health are a top priority. Together, we will live and lead to help be the change we need to see in our nation.
