COLUMBIA, S.C., June 1, 2016 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- South Carolina Virtual Charter School (SCVCS), a full-time online public school, will celebrate the graduation of the Class of 2016 at a ceremony on Thursday, June 2, 2016, in Columbia. Past years graduates have gone on to attend prestigious colleges and universities such as Dartmouth College, Columbia College, Liberty University and the University of South Carolina.
"We are proud to welcome the Class of 2016 into our growing group of South Carolina Virtual Charter School alumni," said Dr. Cherry Daniel, Head of School at SCVCS. "We educate students across the state using an individualized, rigorous curriculum, and as our alumni community grows bigger each year, we look forward to their continued academic success and community involvement."
SCVCS provides an alternative education option through online instruction, hands-on curriculum and the support of South Carolina-licensed teachers. The school is open to students in grades K through 12 who reside anywhere in the state.
SCVCS families benefit from the flexibility that comes with online access to an engaging, rigorous curriculum. Students do not need to move at the same pace that an entire classroom would move – at SCVCS, they can move more quickly or take more time depending on how swiftly they master certain skills and concepts. In this way, SCVCS is designed to give each student an individualized learning experience. Students graduate with a high school diploma that meets all state requirements.
SCVCS provides courses in language arts/English, math, science, history, art and music, as well as world languages for grades 3-12, and elective and Advanced Placement® courses for high school students. Students who qualify can take part in a robust Advanced Learner Program, designed to help top students do more with their education. SCVCS students also have the ability to participate in their school district's extra-curricular athletics and activities.
