The Albertus Magnus Academy is a specialized, online supplemental school serving home-schooled middle and high school Catholic students along the I-85 Corridor in western North Carolina (Diocese of Charlotte) and Upstate South Carolina.

The formal curriculum covers ethics and Catholic social teaching and learning how to promote and defend them through argumentation and debate. Students can also get practical experience in applying that knowledge and skills through its optional secondary program: its competition debate team.
