Buddy Class

Laurens Academy has a great tradition called Buddy Class. The way buddy classes work is that we meet several times a year to make crafts for events such as Grandparents Day, holidays, and Buddy Boutique at our annual auction. Each class has a younger class is paired up with an upper class.  This year’s Buddy Classes are:

  • K4 + 7th grade
  • K5 + 11th grade
  • 1st + 6th grade
  • 2nd + 9th grade
  • 3rd + 12th grade
  • 4th + 8th grade
  • 5th + 10th grade

It is fun to have buddy class because you get to make things with the kids and you see how creative the children are. The kids have very creative minds and they put effort into each thing we do. It is also a great way for the younger students to get to know the older students. Nothing will put a smile on your face when you see your younger buddy around school and they give you a high-five!



International Program

Laurens Academy prides itself on its International Program. Several of our International Students live at the International House or I-house where they learn English along with many other things. They get to see what Americans do on a daily basis whether that be the way we teach things here or how we speak.

We have students from China, Mexico and Spain. In all, we have a total of 11 International Students. It is a great learning experience for us to have in International Students in our school because we also learn from them. we learn their cultures, habits and even some of their language.

Many of these students get very involved with the school. Several students have already joined our sports teams. Our International Program is a great learning tool for the students and even the teachers. This is also a great way to establish friendships across the globe.
