Sumter Today: We get to know a groundbreaking private school in Sumter County


Shawn Ragin’s journey has taken him from two different school districts in the Midlands to his current role as founder and headmaster of Ragin Preparatory Christian Academy.

Now seven years in, Ragin is leading his staff and students through a pandemic with his goal to offer them a good education and faith-based curriculum.

We stopped by on Wednesday when they hold chapel to learn more about SCISCA’s first African-American owned private school.
