Academics

Equipped with high academic standards, positive parental involvement, and caring Christian teachers, the students at Abiding Peace Academy can strive to reach their full potential. Our graduates are successful in middle school and beyond.

Abiding Peace Academy's formal course of study includes a full and complete curriculum. Our teachers strive to keep instruction consistently Christ-centered and challenging. We offer multi-grade classes that are small, enabling our students to excel academically and socially. We are dedicated to teaching a child as much as possible during each class. Our classrooms are an open and friendly setting that allows students to contribute. It's an education dedicated to preparing young minds and hearts for the world that awaits.

In addition to the daily curriculum, students in grades 3-5 take nationally standardized tests[1] each October. The tests are administered across the entire nation, so comparison is made to all American students, not just those in South Carolina. As shown by the graph below, APA students consistently score above national averages in all areas.
