ABOUT

Laurens Academy began in the fall of 1994 with ten fifth grade students meeting in the fellowship hall of Todd Memorial Presbyterian Church. The school was started by a group of concerned parents and educators who believed there was a need for a local alternative the the educational option in Laurens County. In 1996/97, a devastating fire destroyed the middle school and library building. As a result, the Educational/Athletic building was erected. The Class of 2002 became the first graduating class making LA a K4 through 12th grade college preparatory school. While we continue to offer new educational opportunities and adapt to the changing needs of college entrance and success as well as employment preparation, we will always maintain our original mission to educate the whole child in a Christian environment.

Laurens Academy is accredited by the South Carolina Independent School Association (SCISA) and AdvancED/SACS, a worldwide accrediting agency. SCISA and AdvancED review this accreditation every three years. The relationships with both accrediting agencies open many doors of opportunity for the students of Laurens Academy and provide strict standards which the school must maintain as well as provide feedback and direction for growth and development.
