Columbia Campus

Thomas Sumter Academy has extended its 50-year tradition of character building from its campus near Sumter to the East Columbia area.

      Located off highway 378 near Lizard’s Thicket, this campus offers kindergarten through fourth grade students a challenging academic curriculum as well as technology, music, art, dance, PE, Spanish, and STEM activities.

     We are excited to announce that we will be offering K3, K4, and fifth grade classes for the 2017-2018 school year.

   We look forward to welcoming you for a personal tour and first-hand understanding of our offerings; we feel this is the best way to truly appreciate our diversity, and how we fit together to serve the whole individual. Expectations of our students are high at Thomas Sumter Academy, and we support each student in finding their calling and their personal best.
