La Academia Cristiana royal legacy
Ye are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a peculiar people; that ye should show forth the praise of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvelous light. -1 Peter 2:9
Mas vosotros sois linaje escogido, real sacerdocio, nación santa, pueblo adquirido por Dios, para que anunciéis las virtudes de aquel que os llamó de las tinieblas a su luz admirable. -1 Pedro 2:9
Co-Founders Chassidi Martin and Kendall Helmer began homeschooling their kids together. They began meeting in homes at first and then at Harvest Bineyard Church. During this experience, God planted seeds of a vision much bigger than involving just their children. Chassidi and Kendall began to imagine a space where more kids could be involved in a loving, authentic Christian school environment that was affirming and empowering. An environment where a socio economic status did not deter access.
After getting word that such a school already existed in Des Moines, Iowa, the women set off to visit Joshua Christian Academy to gather information and inspiration. After seeing this welcoming and enriching environment and hearing the many stories about God’s provision for their school, Chassidi and Kendall were affirmed in their calling from the Lord to start such a school in Waterloo.
The journey of opening a new school has been both faithbuilding and exciting. With the support of the community, Royal Legacy Christian Academy has become a reality. Please choose to walk along side us in this faith journey.
Royal Legacy Christian Academy will leave a lasting legacy of faith, academic excellence and empowerment for children, family and the community.
The mission of Royal Legacy Christian Academy is to create a safe and friendly Christ-centered environment where students can flourish academically and grow spiritually

“I said yes to God’s vision for this school because I knew what God could do in the lives of children if they had an educational setting where His presence was at the center. I know that the students’ lives, their families’ lives, and our community will be better because of it.
