There is no tuition charge for any weeks that a child does not attend the program.
The academy is open for student drop-offs by 6:30 am during the summer and the field trip bus typically departs at 8:00 am or 9:00 am.

This program is available to students attending any of the Verona elementary, charter, or middle schools.

An All-Day Care Program is provided during the school year whenever area schools are closed.

For a unique and memorable Birthday Party, bring your group to the Legacy Academy Activity Center! A two-hour private party is available at an affordable flat rate of $160. The Birthday Party program is available to the public and our comfortable indoor playground provides an ideal venue for youth parties for kids of all ages. There is so much to do at the academy that there will be no need for you to plan any organized party activities for the children. Of course, a party hosted at the academy will also save wear and tear resulting from any parties otherwise held at your home. Party hosts are expected to supervise the children in attendance at their party.
For those who prefer to host a longer party, a three-hour Saturday or Sunday private party starting at our last party slot time of 7:00 pm is also an option. Three-hour parties may also be scheduled on weeknights starting anytime between 6:00 pm - 6:30 pm. The cost for a three-hour private party is $240.
A smaller scale birthday party option is our "Youngsters Open Gym Party" which enables you to host your child's birthday party during a Youngsters Open Gym session which are held on weekdays and from 9:00 am to 11:00 am on weekends. The academy's small recreation room will table-seat up to 16 children and has couch seating for an additional 8 persons. The cost for this type of party is only $5.00 per child - - no room rental fee is imposed and no down payment is required. This is a great party format for a small group though it does have the limitation that your group will be sharing use of the academy's indoor playground and large recreation room with other families attending the concurrent Youngsters Youngsters Open Gym session.
Youngsters Open Gym sessions are held daily year-round at the academy. The usual open gym hours are from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon and 12:30 pm to 2:30 pm on weekdays while weekend open gym hours are 9:00 am to 11:00 am on Saturday & Sunday mornings (please call or check our web site to confirm current hours). The admission fee for each two-hour open gym session is just $5.00 per child with no charge for supervising adults or tots under the age of one. The Open Gym sessions are intended for children from toddler age to age 12.
