From Southern Preparatory Academy

As a college preparatory school with a military boarding structure- we do more than prepare young men- we transform lives. One of the most significant benefits of military boarding life is that boys learn to face challenges and work through them. When things are difficult or tedious, they don't have the option of shutting down or avoiding; instead, they tackle them with the focus and discipline to move forward. To be ready for college and life beyond means much more today than academic preparation; it means preparation for life. Our graduates move on with the skills to lead; with strong abilities in self-discipline, organization, and teamwork; and with the drive to achieve. They have grown, they have transformed into men, and they are truly prepared for success.

    I have so much good to say about this school that Niche wouldn’t allow me to paste my Facebook review- too many characters!
    Both of my boys are behaviorally good kids- SURPRISINGLY good kids, but lackluster students. My oldest attended summer school at LWMA and that alone gave him the discipline and confidence to pull his grades up, do homework, get pretty good deadest and join the Army. My youngest is I’m his 2nd year at SPA as a Junior. To say most or all the kids there are forced to be there or are bad kids simply isn’t true. My son WANTS to be there because he thrives there. He went from failing to excelling; from lack of interest to participating in team activities; from a wallflower to a leader; from no interest in college to wanting to study Chemical Engineering and commisssioning into the Army. I am extremely appreciative of SPA and all they do. All of the sacrifices are worth my children’s successes. I truly believe in this school and their mission.

    Southern Prep Academy has been a huge blessing to my son! He attended summer school a couple of years ago, and this year he returned for his senior year of high school. In the short time he's been attending, Southern Prep has restored his confidence and inspired him to consider his future academic goals. The staff has exceeded my expectations by providing the behavioral and academic support that he needs to be successful. My only regret is not enrolling him sooner.
    This Is an Excellent School! The ratio Teacher to Student is Superb! The Teachers are Awesome! The School Guidance Counselor is Amazing! This School Teaches Boys how to become Leaders, Giving Back to Communities by Volunteer Work, how to Work as a Team, how to be a Mentor, how to overcome Adversity, and how to become Distinguished Young Gentlemen! The Military Side teaches them how to Take Pride in their Uniform, in Themselves, and in One Another! I love the Mentorship they have! They have Excellent Aviation Program, Sports Programs, Math & Science, Spanish Language, Arts& Music, and Computers! The School Campus is Beautiful! The School teaches them Life Skills! What My Son has Accomplished here in his 5 years is Amazing!
