Parents know from
personal experience that all children learn differently. Our
district-wide school choice program frees students from the old
“one-size-fits-all” model of education and offers ways to learn that are
customized to their personal talents and interests. By actively
engaging students, we build their confidence, increase their knowledge
and skills, and put them on course for success in school and in life.
If your child loves
the visual or performing arts, we have schools that “fuse” the arts with
their academic lessons. If your child has a talent for languages, we
have schools that offer Spanish and Chinese “immersion” programs where
students speak those languages in many of their academic classes. And
although all of our district’s schools teach math and science, we have
schools that specialize in those subjects. No matter what you choose,
all of our schools have teaching and learning programs aimed at
successful high school graduation and beyond!
This section of our
website will introduce students and their families to the wide menu of
instructional options available across the Beaufort County School
District. And the best part is that it doesn’t matter where you live!
If you apply and qualify, you can attend a school choice program outside
your regular attendance zone.
Two regional information fairs will give students and their parents
opportunities to learn about the district’s choice programs and how to apply
for them. The first fair (6-7:30 p.m. on
Monday, January 9 at Beaufort Middle School) will feature choice programs in northern
Beaufort County. The second fair (6-7:30
p.m. on Wednesday, January 11 at H.E. McCracken Middle School) will feature choice
programs in southern Beaufort County.
After the two regional fairs, individual schools will host their own
meetings between January 17 and January 31 so students and parents can get more detailed
on-site information about the choices they offer.
On this page are an overview of the school choice program, answers to frequently asked questions and a calendar with key dates for parents and students.
