Message from Head of School

It is my pleasure to welcome you to Southern Wake Academy.  As you look over our website I hope you will be inspired to learn more about our school and our program.  I also hope that you will come for a visit in person and find out what makes SWA such a special place.

Originally founded in 2000 in Holly Springs, Southern Wake Academy moved to the present campus in 2010.  Since then a new high school building was constructed, offering the latest in facilities.  Future plans include further expansion as we seek to continue to serve students in the 21st century.  I hope you will consider joining us on the journey into the future!

If you visit our campus you’ll see an up-to-date facility that supports a successful learning program.  But the story of SWA is really told through the people that you will meet here.  Our students strive to set goals and achieve them, our parents support and encourage our programs by their participation and our teachers and staff have dedicated their talents to our program because they believe in the students whom they serve.

There is no doubt that Southern Wake Academy is a special place.  I invite you to explore and find out for yourself if SWA is the place for you.  I hope to meet you soon!
