Personally I loved Salem Academy! The people, environment, and especially teachers were great! Everyone seems devoted to your education and genuinely excited to help you learn and help you get into college. The teacher fight for your success and work hard to make learning both fun and challenging. The school offers a wide range of classes comparable to that of public schools which is amazing for a small school!
Attending Salem Academy has been one of the greatest experiences I could have hoped for. While it is small, the standards the school holds us to are high. This has encouraged me to also have high expectations for myself, and has given me a great headstart into the college process. I have grown spiritually, academically, and personally, and I'm thankful to have had the opportunity to be a part of such a great school.
