Marlboro Academy provides each student with a strong solid base curriculum. The South Carolina Curriculum standards are used as a guide. Students are expected to learn the classics with paper and pencil for math calculations in Saxon Math Program. Upon entrance into ninth grade, Marlboro Academy students will have earned three Carnegie units as credits in English, mathematics, computer, and physical education towards high school graduation.  The high school has a rigorous college-preparatory curriculum, with strong emphases on literary and composition skills, as well as computational and problem-solving skills in mathematics.   High school students utilize problem solving and critical thinking skills, while continuing to build a content base with greater depth and breadth. 




Students in grades K-9 annually take the Stanford 10 Achievement Test.  Each year, students in grades 2, 5, and 7 take the OLSAT.  The PSAT is administered to grades 8-11 annually, to provide students ample opportunity to become accustomed to national standardized college admittance testing.  Students normally begin to take the SAT and/or ACT at the end of their sophomore year.  SAT scores for years 2006 through 2008 are highlighed below., click on the link below.

College Placement  

The college placement office helps students identify colleges and universities that best match their needs and abilities and assists them though the college admissions process.  The counselor encourages students to pursue the strongest academic program appropriated for them.


Although the "formal" college search begins during the junior year, the process truly begins when a student enters Middle School at Marlboro Academy . In the eighth grade, students will earn four (4) credits towards graduation by taking Algebra I (1), English I (1), Computer Science (1), and Physical Education (1).

Eighth, ninth, and tenth grade students are encouraged to concentrate on establishing their academic record, to begin keeping a file of their accomplishments (academic awards, athletic awards, community service, etc.) during high school, and to plan their summer activities to best enhance their career aspirations.


Marlboro Academy students take the PSAT in the eighth, ninth, tenth, and eleventh grades.  Also, they are encouraged to take the SAT at least twice during the eleventh grade and once during the fall of their twelfth grade year.
