62 SEPTEMBER 20 - 26, 2017 WWW.UPANDCOMINGWEEKLY.COM Best Private School Fayetteville Academy 3200 Cliffdale Rd. (910) 868-5131 or www.fayettevilleacademy.com Since 1970, Fayetteville Academy has offered our students exceptional opportuni- ties and educated our children. The institu- tion was founded by a group who desired to help students achieve excellence in aca- demics, arts and athletics. Today, the school has around 370 students with a staff of little more than 60. The academy is the only independent, non-sectarian pre-school through twelfth grade school in Cumberland County. This allows the school to boast a 13 to 1 stu- dent to teacher ratio. The school's prioritization of its students can be seen through its commitment to athletics and the arts, too. There are theatrical opportunities for all grade levels, and 80 percent of students participate on an athletic team. It doesn't seem to stretch the imagination to believe that the group of men and women who originally founded Fayetteville Academy under a different charter in the late 1800s would be proud to see the advances the school and its students have made. Best Pawn Shop Ace Pawn 5721 Bragg Blvd. (910) 867-4010 or www.goldbuyerfayettevillenc.net At Ace Pawn, you never know what treasures you'll find, but you can be guaranteed that you'll find a wide selection of guns, jewelry, musical instruments and antiques.
