From the Headmistress

Highlander Academy, on the Historic Flora Macdonald Campus, is a continuation of the academic excellence established in 1896 with the creation of the Red Springs 

Seminary, the first womans college in the area. The college changed its name in 

1903 to Southern Presbyterian College and Conservatory of Music, and then,

in 1914, to Flora Macdonald College.  This latter name was in honor of the famous 

Scottish heroine whofor a time during the Revolutionary War era, lived in our

area of North Carolina.  Our campus exudes a sense of history and a walk through 

our buildings invites you into academic promise.  It is our past which inspires the 

future for our students, who come here to make both a history and a future for themselves.

Each students promise can be more easily molded in our supportive environment – a 

relaxed, safe, comfortable, concerned, and caring family atmosphere.  Every child is

known by name and by their individual needs.  Our small classes enhance a spirit of

learning that inspires student achievement.  We have the highest of expectations for

student  growth intellectuallyemotionally, physically, and socially.  Our North

Carolina certified faculty holds students to the highest standards on a daily basis. 


At Highlander Academy, we want parents to be informed about our schools progress

and involved in our school on a regular basis.  Please feel free to contact us directly

to discuss any aspect of our school's programs.  Thank you for allowing us the

opportunity to share aspects of our school and thank you for supporting our

efforts to provide your child with a high-quality education.
