The staff at Laurens Preparatory Academy is not concerned with your child's past as much as we are concerned about your child's future.  It is our goal to encourage your child towards academic excellence and to help them cope with the challenges they face in school and in life.

Our mission is to provide an effective college and career readiness standards-based curricula in a safe environment to develop productive citizens for our society.


Level 1 Entry Uniform: white-collared shirt, black slacks, black belt, black shoes  and black socks.


Students need a binder, paper, pencils and blue/black pens everyday.  No bookbags, purses, etc, please.


We work very closely with the Laurens Police Department to help keep our environment safe.
