LA Receives “Strong Foundations Award”

IMG_0082Laurens Academy received the “Strong Foundations in Early Childhood Award” from the South Carolina Independent School Association on January 30, 2018. The award is in recognition of the solid foundation of our college preparatory curriculum which begins in K4. Students who attend Laurens Academy from kindergarten through graduation are at a distinct advantage. Those students perform over 25% higher on standardized tests than they would be expected to perform according to ability, and 95% have earned a college degree or are currently in college.  “Current events and technology are constantly changing, there is a body of lasting knowledge and skills that form the core of a strong preschool curriculum.  What children are able to learn at any given moment depends on what they already know-and, equally important, that what they know is a function of previous experience and teaching.”  (Core Knowledge)
