Christian Academy held its Ground Breaking Ceremony on November 19, 2011, Saturday, 11am. We officially moved into our new building on February 25, 2013. The new campus is located at 291 Ron McNair Blvd. (just off Dick Scobee Road). Christian Academy is one of South Carolina’s fastest growing private schools. In the past 8 years, we added new students each year and now are at 423 students currently enrolled from kindergarten to 12th grade. The combination of high academic standards fused with the Christian faith have resulted in a strong and growing school.
Christian Academy will be located on 30 acres of beautiful low country land just off the crossroads of the Grand Strand’s main thoroughfares, Highway 501 and Highway 31. Fourteen of these acres are lowland where the unique nature of our part of this wonderful country can be observed. The new wireless 40,000 square-foot facility includes 18 multimedia classrooms including science and computer labs, a fine arts classroom, media center, kitchen and dining facility and a Gymnasium. The athletic fields include a soccer field and a baseball field.
In the early nineties a group of local individuals were called to open a school that would provide a highly academic program that was thoroughly Christian for the Grand Strand area. Christian Academy experiences success today because the of the diligence and prayers of these leaders.
Governed by a Board of Trustees, Christian Academy is an interdenominational school that offers a challenging and comprehensive curriculum for its students, while integrating biblical principles throughout the grades. The academy is pleased to offer an excellent college preparatory high school program that is committed to preparing students not only for college, but for life. Faith with Feet, the school’s mission emphasis, allows for integrated service and learning opportunities for students in grades K-12.
Christian Academy wants to extend this opportunity to as many children as possible, with the goal of touching many lives for Christ. Christian Academy strives to provide tomorrow’s leaders with an outstanding educational experience where the can reach their full potential.
