New Legacy Charter School is ULC’s first real estate investment in Original Aurora. In 2014, ULC purchased a vacant bowling alley for $675,000. Following the acquisition and demolition of the bowling alley, ULC constructed a 23,000 square foot charter school.
Today, New Legacy is in its third school year. The charter school serves pregnant and parenting teens and their children. The school aims to empower students to create a legacy of education, quality parenting and personal success. Immediately following construction, New Legacy opened their doors for the 2014-2015 school year. At the present time, New Legacy has welcomed over 30 graduates to its alumni.
New Legacy Charter School takes a unique approach to education by offering pregnant or parenting teens the opportunity to receive a tuition free high school education. The students’ children can also attend the adjacent early education center, allowing parents to visit with their children throughout the day.
New Legacy Charter School held a cooking class for their students last week. Katrina Brink from Kitchen on the Green spent the day teaching the students how to prepare a traditional Indian Feast, and how to make nutritious decisions.
