Legacy Christian Academy

LCA: Home of the Mustangs

Legacy Christian Academy is a Bible-based Christian school offering grades K-12. LCA is registered with the Florida Department of Education and accredited by the Florida Council of Private Schools. At LCA, we use the Accelerated Christian Education curriculum–a mastery–based, individualized curriculum in which the student sets his or her own educational goals while being assisted by educated professional Christian Staff at LCA.
It is our goal at Legacy Christian Academy to meet the educational, physical, nutritional, therapeutic and spiritual needs of our students. 

The BASE Program

Family Ministries of Florida has worked hard to create a unique approach to
reaching students who have been let down on so many different fronts. Our newest exciting addition to Legacy Christian Academy is our BASE (Balametrics and Sensory Enhancement) Program. This program is backed by scientific research and has proven to enhance students' learning abilities. We've seen wonderful results from the BASE Program in combination with Therapeutic Listening, where students listen to enhanced music as a part of an in-clinic and/or home therapy program.

Benefits of the BASE Program

Research has shown that the sense of balance, or vestibular system, affects brain processing and sensory integration. Activities that involve balance can have a significant effect on student’s information processing and thus their academics.
When a person engages in motor activities that involve many different sensory systems, the brain utilizes more neural networks to organize and execute the activities effectively. As the difficulty of the task increases, so does the number of neuron networks.
Activities that require individuals to balance, make spatial judgments, and provide feedback are the most powerful and effective activities for maintaining and improving brain processing efficiency. That’s why we include sensory integration activities within our classroom to prompt our students to become efficient learners which improves academic success.

Therapeutic Listening

The second part of our BASE Program is Therapeutic Listening. Therapeutic Listening is an evidence-based auditory intervention intended to support individuals who experience challenges with sensory processing, listening, attention, and communication.
The auditory system within our body has connections to different parts of the brain. This makes sound a powerful tool to access the nervous system in order to trigger certain areas of our brain. The music is in our Therapeutic Listening program is electronically modified to highlight the parts of the sound spectrum that naturally trigger attention and activate body movement. In addition to the electronic modifications, it also capitalizes on the organized rhythmical sound patterns inherent in music to trigger the self-organizing capacities of the nervous system.
