Legacy Christian Academy
Community Environment
Right from the start key stakeholders including
school staff and administration, parents,
students, community and civic leaders along with
neighborhood representatives were engaged in
conversations that started with the articulation
of a shared vision for learning and worked its
way to defining the attributes of a unique
Learning Experience that would enable this
Community to live out their vision to the fullest
extent possible.   The process was kicked off
with a Workshop Charrette wherein a shared Vision
for Learning was articulated and a conceptual
design was created using a three-dimensional
modeling program that allowed participants to
actively participate in shaping the design.
  Community members were invited to participate
throughout the entire process on a variety of
levels ranging from the larger Steering Committee
on down to small Focus Groups, creating ownership
and buy-in.   Located in the starter community of
Ramsey, Minnesota, time was spent sharing and
understanding the unique qualities of this
growing community and in understanding how the
school and community could mutually benefit from
one another. More specifically with the schools
location directly adjacent to the COR (Core of
Ramsey) which will serve as its civic, business
and cultural hub, opportunities were identified
that would both bring the community into the
learning process as well as send learners out
into the community to apply their learning. Such
partnerships would allow the learners to connect
their learning to real life, and also allow the
community to play an active role in helping shape
their future workforce. The end result is the
creation of learning experiences that are
memorable and meaningful by allowing the students
to give back to their communities.

Learning Vision -- Our planning discussions
focused first on articulating a Shared Vision for
Learning, which guided the entire planning and
design process
