Archway Academy was founded in 1985 in Sumter, South Carolina, with the mission to offer quality early education programs to families and their children. Archway Academy Sumter includes a state of the art Preschool building with 10 classrooms serving children 6 weeks through 5 years of age. It also includes an expansive school-age building designed specifically for children five to twelve years of age. Archway Academy Sumter continues to be voted best Childcare Center by readers of the Sumter Item.

In 2007 Archway Academy was thrilled to add an additional location in beautiful Summerville, South Carolina. The school consists of 6 classrooms, serving children ages 12 months to 12 years of age. Our Summerville location was recognized as one of the top Day Camps in the entire tri-county area by LowCountry Parent Magazine readers in 2016.
