Pickens Academy is a very small school. We have around 260 kids, K-3 through 12th grade. I have gone to Pickens Academy since I was in K-4, and I will graduate in May 2018. I love the close knit feeling of our school. Everybody knows everyone, and you feel like a family. Our teachers care about furthering our education in order to see us succeed in the real world and not just to get the test scores they need. The only thing I would change about Pickens Academy is the way people perceive you if you don't play football. I love football, and I enjoy cheering the guys on from he band section, but I believe if you don't want to play football then that should be respected. Everyone is different and wants to use their talents in different areas.

Attending Pickens Acadmy since K-4 has fallen into my favor. Pickens Acadmey is full of amazing facility and staff who make it their main focus to make sure we understand the material. They stay after school, if needed, or come before school in order to help struggling students. Along with the great facility and staff, the students are also amazing. Being apart of the student body, everyone around you is very supportative and friendly. They encourage others to not only excel as a student but to also excel within their faith. Pickens Academy's mission states states "Our mission is to provide a quality education in a well- disciplined, Christian environment" and I believe that this is accomplished, everyday. The teachers bring forth challenging work but find ways to get student interested. The students create such a loving environment so you feel comfortable to be yourself. Pickens Academy is a huge family, everyone is close and there is no other way it should be.
I've been attending Pickens Academy for 14 years, since K-4 to now in 12th grade. Throughout the years the student body has grown closer and closer together. We've been around each other basically 24/7 and as my classes' graduation date is growing closer and closer day by day, there isn't a day that goes by that we don't talk about the crazy things we've done throughout the years. Pickens Academy is a small school, but the facility, staff and students are like a big family. Everyone looks out of everyone. Pickens Academy does an amazing job at teaching students how to give back to those who don't have a lot by participating in numerous events such as:monthly local can drives, Toys-For-Tots, Sole for Soles, baby blanket drives, sending care boxes to Soldiers over seas and helping natural disaster victims.
