  • Sumter Academy offers instruction for students enrolled in second through twelfth grade.
  • We offer a low student to teacher ratio, the maximum capacity of each class being twelve students.
  • Sumter Academy also offers participation in clubs and organizations including First Priority, D.A.R.E., Yearbook Staff and School Event Committees.
  • 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.
