Regina Coley

School Leader

“Legacy Academy for Girls is born from a deep conviction that every girl deserves a learning environment tailored to her unique needs and aspirations. I founded this school to provide a haven where girls can thrive, free from the distractions and limitations often present in coeducational settings. Girls possess a special kind of magic — a blend of resilience, intelligence, and compassion that, when nurtured, can change the world. It’s my mission to unlock that magic, empowering each girl to realize her full potential and contribute positively to her community and beyond.”
