Welcome to Thomas Sumter Academy, where the expectations are high and the calling to be one's personal best is very real. Academics - Athletics - Arts
"Add to your faith, virtue; and to virtue, knowledge." 2 Peter 1:5
The primary reason for Thomas Sumter Academy is not to be found merely in the amount of knowledge conveyed to students or in the list of colleges to which they are admitted. Thomas Sumter Academy is an educational institution serving whole individuals. A strong foundation in academia is critical for college preparation and for life, but success in this single area does not stand alone. Thomas Sumter Academy encourages participation in interscholastic athletics, fine arts, and extracurricular activities for the development of personal leadership skills, dependability, initiative, and fairness.
Students can hear lectures and graduate elsewhere. We strive to create and maintain an environment of Christian love and discipline where children learn to link bodies of knowledge and an enthusiasm for living. Our goal is to assist each student’s growth towards independence in thought and action.
Thomas Sumter Academy has affectionately throughout the years been referred to as “The Hill” because of our physical location, nestled in the “gently rolling hills of Santee,” located in the triangle created by Sumter, SC, Camden, SC, and the Shaw Air Force Base. Our location promotes diversity and we attract children from families of various walks of life.
We look forward to welcoming you on "The Hill" 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.
