Press Releases

Columbia, SC – SC Whitmore School, an online public high school based in Columbia, is excited to announce the graduation of 13 high school students in December of 2019.

Principal John Loveday said, “Ten seniors completed their graduation requirements six months early and are now high school graduates.”

SC Whitmore School continues to show when students are allowed the flexibility to complete school on their pace, with the correct resources and support structures in place, students are able to thrive and meet their academic goals.

“Just as important, we also had three students complete their graduation requirements beyond the traditional four-year path,” said Loveday. “These three students came to SCWS massively behind in credits and on the verge of giving up and dropping out of high school. With the help of our amazing teachers, school counselors, family, and friends our students were in a position to not give up, accomplish their goals, and develop a path of success for their future.”

“It’s incredible to witness firsthand the impact of SCWS, said Loveday. “As a product myself of South Carolina public schools, this is why I do what I do. The South Carolina Public Charter School District is redefining what is possible while providing high-quality public school choice to students all across our state.”
