My SC Education is excited about the growth in education options for South Carolina parents. We know that education is not one-size-fits-all. One education choice option that has been available within the state since 1996 is charter schools. While charter schools may not be the answer for all parents, many parents have found charter schools to be highly effective for their children.
Beginning in the 2018-2019 school year, South Carolina will welcome 9 new charter schools in various locations throughout the state. What’s more, these schools will provide varying educational programs to address the needs of unique populations of students. Below is a list of the schools with links to their websites.
- Bettis Preparatory Leadership Academy
- Charleston Acceleration Academy
- East Light Academy
- East Link Academy
- Lakes & Bridges Charter School
- Polaris Tech
