THE STORY:

We are raising funds to support our planning in the year ahead and to ensure a strong start for our school and students in August 2015. Thank you for your support!

Overview

New Legacy Charter High School is an innovative school for pregnant and parenting teens, opening in Aurora, CO in August 2015. We believe that with the right support, teen parents are incredibly motivated and resilient. Young parents need and deserve a high-quality school option not only for themselves, but also for the future of their children. Through a program geared towards both young parents and their children, we have a unique opportunity to impact two generations at a time. Join us in making this vision a reality in Aurora!

The Need

In the four zip codes the school intends to serve (80010, 80011, 80012, and 80239), there were 351 teen births (ages 14 – 18) over the past two years for which there is data through the Colorado Department of Public Health and the Environment (2012 and 2013). While the teen birth has dropped significantly over the past 20 years, it remains high in northwest Aurora; teen births in the four target zip codes were actually a bit higher in 2013 than in 2012. Nationally, only about 51% of teen mothers receive a high school diploma by age 22, versus nearly 90% of women who had not given birth during adolescence. Applying this 51% statistic to the 351 teen births in 2011 and 2012 in the targeted zip codes would mean that approximately 172 students dropped out. On average, less than 2% of teen mothers attain a college degree by age 30.

School Model

The New Legacy model is based on an appropriate combination of providing an excellent academic program, relentless support, and parenting education. The foundation for this work is a flexible structure designed to accommodate a diverse group of students’ needs and a positive school culture based on student leadership, personal relationships, high expectations, and celebration. The educational program is based on preparing students for continuing education (2- or 4-year college) by ensuring they are college-ready, which includes preparing them with 21st Century Skills (communication, collaboration, creativity, critical thinking, and technology skills).
