Founded in 1972 in historic Manning, South Carolina, Laurence Manning Academy is an independent, Christian school which offers students the opportunity to receive a quality education and moral values in an atmosphere of Christian faith, higher learning, academic excellence, and personal attention.
In turn, we encourage our students not only to set goals for themselves, but also to evaluate and motivate themselves in all areas of faith and school activities so that one day, they may usefully serve society.
At Laurence Manning Academy, we also believe that student participation in our extra-curricula, athletic, and service programs is the perfect compliment to their academic experience. Students are encouraged take and active role in their choice of clubs, service organizations, arts programs, and athletic offered at LMA.

I have two children that attend Laurence Manning and I could not be more satisfied with the education and moral culture that the school promotes. From educational programs to the feeling of family in every aspect of the school, LMA is the only choice for my family. Whether you come from the Sumter or Clarendon county community, Laurence Manning is the best place to send your child for quality and wholesome educational experience.
