Legacy Christian Academy students graduate Saturday

On Saturday, eight Legacy Christian Academy students will walk across the stage and become high school graduates.

School Superintendent Robert Quinn said the graduates plan to attend two- to four-year colleges or trade schools and that the entire academy is proud of their hard work and many accomplishments.

Katarina Carbary, 17, of Winchester, is one of the eight students graduating Saturday. She was a member of the Legacy Honors Society and helped the academy raise funds for various school trips and activities. Her favorite classes included calculus and biology.

Carbary said she plans to attend Lord Fairfax Community College in Middletown, where she will receive her associate’s degree in general studies. Upon graduation from LFCC, Katarina said she hopes to attend James Madison University.

“I’m still trying to decide who I want to be,” Katarina said. “By the time I leave LFCC I hope to have a better idea in mind of what I want to study and achieve academically.”

One thing Katarina said she believes sets her apart from her peers is her desire to work while in school. She held jobs at a local golf course and most recently Chick-fil-A.

“I really like to stay busy,” she said. “I don’t know what to do with my hands or spare time if I’m not working.”

She said she has many fond memories of her classmates and will miss the “family like atmosphere” the academy created.

Graduation is scheduled for 10 a.m. Saturday at Legacy Christian Academy, 5933 Valley Pike in Stephens City.
