Charles F. Crisp Media and Technology Center
The Charles F. Crisp Media and Technology Center is located in the center of Southland's campus. In 2001 an expansion of the original library was undertaken. This new addition houses both the High School and Elementary Libraries and accommodates a technology center. The Southland Academy Board of Trustees, as a lasting tribute to honor Charles F. Crisp, named the media and technology facility the Charles F. Crisp Media and Technology Center.
Charles F. Crisp, a native son and community leader of Americus and Sumter County, was a distinguished public servant, dedicated to improving the quality of life of the citizens of this community. He was among the first to recognize the need and the benefit of providing a choice of private education to the citizens of Americus and Sumter County. By lending his prestigious support, he encouraged others in fostering the development of Southland Academy.
The present media center is fully automated and houses both high school and elementary collections. The building also accommodates the high school and elementary computer labs. Research computers, study/reading areas, and a news media area are available in the main facility. A conference room is designed for teachers, staff, and board members for individual and group meetings.
