Students are expected to think beyond the classroom and apply the knowledge they have gained to their real world experience. Our high school curriculum meets the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education's requirements for a SC preparatory diploma. Our qualifying juniors and seniors can complete over 30 hours of college credit through our dual enrollment program with the University of South Carolina. College counseling and employment preparation is a priority as we teach two separate classes to freshmen and sophomores, as well as work with students individually about college options and majors, resumes, interviewing skills, career options, and scholarship opportunities. A required senior internship in a field they wish to pursue a degree or employment gives valuable insight and networking to students before they graduate. Laurens Academy is proud to have 100% college acceptance and an ACT average (based on curriculum exposure) that exceeds the national average.
