Thomas Heyward Academy provides a well-rounded college preparatory curriculum with extensive offerings in English, social sciences, mathematics, foreign languages, sciences, art and music. Honors classes are offered in biology, physics, calculus AB and BC. In addition to the curriculum, dual enrollment college courses are offered through The Technical College of the Lowcountry and The University of South Carolina Beaufort. Students are able, through their choices, to create an individual schedule tailored to their needs and interests. Some courses are required and some are recommended, but there are electives, increasing as the student progresses through school. The act of making one's own choices is important as it develops responsibility, increases commitment, and encourages exploration of new areas for learning. Not every student chooses to go to college directly from Thomas Heyward, but those who do are well-prepared. One of the strengths of Thomas Heyward Academy is the enrichment which comes from such varied experiences.
Thomas Heyward Academy is an AdvancED accredited college preparatory school. We strive to provide the best, quality education to our students through academics, arts, and athletics in a safe and engaging environment. We are dedicated to the development of each student in mind and body to prepare them for a successful future in a rapidly changing world.
