Southland Academy’s campus is located on a beautiful 55-acre campus in Americus, GA.
Today, Southland has four-year kindergarten through twelfth grade on the Americus campus.
The nine building education complex includes a four-year kindergarten building, a five-year kindergarten building, an elementary building, a junior high building, a high school building, a media center, a music facility, a cafeteria, and two gymnasiums.
The purpose of establishing the school was to make available a quality educational program for those who seek such a challenge, to expose the student to a Christian atmosphere that is conducive to learning, and to provide all the facets of education upon which good citizenship is founded.
Fundamental classroom activities are presented to the student so that he can analyze problems, can perform before his peers, and can achieve distinction as an individual.
Led by well-trained, highly qualified teachers, the student is encouraged to participate to his fullest capacity toward achieving the educational background he needs to prepare him for a productive adult life.
In addition to regular classroom study, the student has opportunities afforded to him in club work, athletics, music and oratory so that his education will be well rounded and complete.

School Reviews

  • Recommended December 11, 2012 - We moved to Americus and found our dream, Southland. We had 2 children to graduate and move on to college, Both have excelled beyond our dreams. We loved the family atmosphere and closeness of the kids and faculty. We came to Southland from another private school in Macon. Southland''s tuition was HALF. Best deal in the State!! Very Happy Southland Family. - Posted by Parent
