ABOUT LOWCOUNTRY LEADERSHIP CHARTER SCHOOL
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.
A natural benefit of K through 12 learning is seamless education. Seamless education provides students with a predictable learning environment where school-wide policies and programs are strategically modified to maintain efficiency and effectiveness for all grade levels. Age appropriate expectations, consequences, and rewards are tailored for elementary, middle, and high school students.
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.
The vision of Lowcountry Leadership Charter School is to develop an intrinsic desire and purpose within our students, that will nurture confidence for authentic leadership opportunities to investigate, collaborate, and resolve issues of inquiry, involving all academic disciplines and extracurricular and athletic activities, within an atmosphere of encouragement steeped in high expectations and natural rewards, thereby yielding healthy, well-rounded, moral, accountable, and compassionate advocates of human rights, national resources, independent means, and civic responsibility.
Our commitment to accomplish this vision is based on the following beliefs:
Project Based Instruction
Teachers as Facilitators
Students as Mentors
Community and business support and involvement
The focus of Lowcountry Leadership Charter is developing leaders through project-based experiences.
