Our family has been well served by the culture of learning and the expectation of achievement at Beaufort Academy.  My children have been home schooled, attended a DOD school overseas, a private Christian school and several public schools.   Our experiences at BA have been the high point of their educational careers.   My daughter sums it up best.  When asked what she regrets about attending BA, she responded, “I regret that I didn’t come here sooner.”
