In 1999, LCA leased facilities from Frisco Bible Church. The church agreed to house the school in its new building which was under construction, and in September 1999 with approximately 120 students in Kindergarten through 9th grade, LCA began its first school year.
Legacy Christian Academy opened in early September for the 2002-2003 school year at its current location of Legacy and Academy. During that school year, the gymnasium and cafetorium were completed. Legacy was given permission to begin the accreditation process, and in 2003 became accredited with the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) and the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools (SACS).
In 2004, a field house and athletic fields including a football field, a baseball & softball field and a seven lane track were added.
Once again out of space, construction began on the West Wing, featuring the chapel.
In 2009, the Upper School gymnasium opened as the first phase of a separate Upper School facility, accommodate the growing number of athletes and teams. Complete with larger boys & girls locker rooms, concessions, coaches' offices, equipment storage, and trainer facilities.
In 2011, the Intermediate School at Legacy Christian Academy was created out of a desire to meet the specific needs of students in grades 5-8.
The 2011-2012 school year was a year of change for LCA high school students, as the iLegacy 1:1 MacBook initiative launch in August.
