L.I.F.E. Guidance

Welcome to L.I.F.E. Guidance at Legacy Community Academy. It is our hope and prayer to support our upper school students with their academics as well as help prepare them for L.I.F.E. after high school.

We endeavor to accomplish this by offering support in classes, providing testing information, dates, and resources, assisting with the college application process, and explaining pertinent information regarding GPA, HOPE, scholarships, and transcript information.

Should you have any additional guidance questions or needs, please contact Mrs. Charlotte Ellard at:

  • Student Work Permit
    If you are under 16 years of age, and you have an employer, you need a work permit, even if you only work                        
    during the summer. The work permit data sheet can be completed online.  Use the link below to access the online work permit system.
    Students fill out the employee portion online and receive a "security key". As a homeschool parent, you are the "Issuing Officer".  Parent completes the online portion of the work permit and the employer completes their online portion using the student's "security key".  After this is completed, the GDL emails the student a work permit.

  • FAFSA - Free Application for Federal Student Aid

    The FAFSA, officially known as the Free Application for Federal Student Aid, is  the form that families fill out to apply for federal grants, loans, and work-study funds for college students. A student's eligibility for federal grants (which do not have to be repaid) and federal loans (which do) will generally be based on your financial need, as determined by the information you supply on your FAFSA.  Families will need to create a parent and student user account in order to complete the application.  Families may create their user accounts at any time, however the FAFSA application for the following academic year does not open until October 1st.  Colleges and universities have differing deadlines so it is best to complete this form as soon as possible in order to be eligible for grants and scholarships.
