Our Story

Authorized by the State Department of Education and sponsored by the SC Public Charter School District (SCPCSD), LLCS was founded on June 25, 2012 and opened it’s doors to 420 students in grades K5 - 9th for the 2013-2014 school year. First year 9th graders matriculated up and were the first graduating class in 2017. At max capacity of 520 students, LLCS now seamlessly serves students in grades K5 - 12th.

Check back to learn how LLCS evolved from an idea to an amazing charter school in rural Charleston County. In the mean time, here’s a little bit about our mission, focus, and goals.

The mission of Lowcountry Leadership Charter School is to provide a safe, exceptional academic environment that cultivates independent learning, character enrichment and regional awareness while developing accountable leaders, community stewards, and diverse thinkers through project-based experiences.

Each charter school must have a unique focus. Ours is developing leaders through project-based experiences. Based on the school-wide curriculum goals that reflect the mission statement, a uniquely designed innovative curriculum framework provides the structure upon which meaningful and engaging lessons and activities are based for every grade. This framework is balanced with quarterly focuses and supporting Project Based Learning (PBL) activities, all aligned with the SC Academic Standards. Quarterly focuses include Lowcountry Regional Awareness, Environmental Issues and Stewardship, the Arts, and Debate/Collaborate/Negotiate, each of which is taught through three PBL projects reflecting a specific theme.
