We offer a low student to teacher ratio, the maximum capacity of each class being twelve students.

Sumter Academy’s daily lunch program is provided by local restaurants including KFC, Peking House, Burger King, Sonic, and Jersey Mikes, to name a few.
Lunch selections are chosen and paid for on a weekly basis.
