  • Palmetto Christian Academy’s course of study is demanding and college preparatory. Students begin in lower school with the fundamentals (the facts of each subject), then develop logic and argumentation skills in the middle grades (formal logic and the ordering of facts learned), and finally master rhetorical skills in the high school grades (persuasive expression). Our course of study requires students to think deeply and critically and offers courses at College Preparatory, Honors, and Advanced Placement.
