The School of Excellence in Education is now Legacy Traditional Schools!

Legacy Traditional Schools is a tuition-free, K-12 charter school district. For over twenty years, we have been dedicated to bridging the critical gaps in education by creating a smooth transition for students in San Antonio as they navigate through their academic careers.

A New Legacy for One of San Antonio’s Earliest Tuition-Free Charter Schools

For more than 20 years, the School of Excellence in Education has bridged critical education gaps in the San Antonio area by creating a supportive and inclusive academic community — a community that’s inspired thousands of students and graduates from Kindergarten through Grade 12.

From day one, our close connection to San Antonio has shaped what we believe, how we behave, and the communities we serve — but it hasn’t always been featured at the forefront of our schools. Until now.

With a new name and brand identity, improved facilities, and a refreshed academic curriculum, we want to build upon the rich history of our schools to highlight the families we serve and the community we reside in.

New Name. Same Mission.


Provide a learning culture where all students thrive and excel through innovative and adaptive 21st century skills, using research-based, data-driven methods.


All students graduate college and are career-ready, prepared to compete in a global society.


Commitment, Community, Engagement, Excellence, Growth, Integrity, Responsibility, Service
