Need and Opportunity
Over the past several years, there has been quite an increase of military families moving to the area. The Academy of Moore County has become home to the children of military parents who reside in, not only Moore County, but surrounding counties such as Harnett, Hoke, Richmond, and Scotland.
We provide a stable and nurturing environment for students who have one or both parents deployed overseas.

As a School of Choice, we realize that many public schools are not able to offer to their students the attention they need to be successful. The Academy of Moore County offers students the ability to learn and succeed at their own pace, while maintaining the highest quality of education for young children.
The Academy of Moore County began as MAST Charter School in the education building of Christ Fellowship Church on Midland Road in Southern Pines some 20 years ago. With almost 100 students enrolled in grades 5-7, it was one of the first public charter schools in in North Carolina. In 2009 the school moved to its present facility in Aberdeen and expanded its curriculum to grades K-5. It currently enrolls 300 students. Construction on a second building on the present site will begin in the summer of 2018, and with this new space student enrollment will grow to some 500 students.
The Academy of Moore County aligns all curriculum with North Carolina State Standards. Teacher’s lessons are rigorous but focus on the learner and the learning process. Our teachers innovate and differentiate lessons to meet the needs of all students. Our goal is to develop engaged learners, problem solvers, as well as critical thinkers.
