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 one year later for the 2013-2014 school year to 400 students in grades K5 - 9th.  Inaugural year 9th graders matriculate up each year as the first graduating class of LLCS in the year 2017. LLCS is centrally located in Hollywood, SC - a rural town in Charleston County and right in the heart of the lowcountry.  Several county lines are in close proximity and because LLCS is a state charter school, enrollment is open to the entire state, thus eliminating the barrier of neighborhood and county school zoning restrictions.   LLCS creates a safe, diverse learning community that recognizes and values the individual—cognitively, ethically, socially, emotionally, and physically—and provides educational opportunities for each area to grow and be strengthened.

For the 2015-2016 school year, LLCS is a Title I school.  For more information, click here.
