Liberty STEAM Charter has a clear plan for our future based on our team’s more than 50 years of combined experience in public education. We lead by developing winning habits to achieve excellence in three strategic focuses:
College & Career Ready
We are building our academic systems to ensure each Academy is rated as an EXCELLENT school by the SC Department of Education. Currently, less than ten percent of schools in the state have this ranking.
We are creating operational systems that allow our school leaders to focus on instruction while also holding us accountable for the efficient use of our public and private funding. We will be the most operationally sound school in the state when measured by fiscal responsibility and systems that allow instructional time to be maximized.
Mission at Scale
We aim to be a school that serves a significant portion of the Sumter community, focusing on historically underrepresented communities. To achieve this mission, we have strong focuses on fundraising, grant writing, and community advocacy for our work. Our $500,000 yearly fundraising goal will significantly contribute to this cause.
Our focus on Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics (STEAM) education is critical to our winning academic formula. Our scholars will be exposed to rigorous learning opportunities to grow their critical thinking skills to be both college and career-ready.
STEAM education is the academic arm to our larger strategic formula for success — the LSC approach. By combining our education model with culture and a college and career mindset, we will embolden every scholar with the greatest gift of all — the power of CHOICE.
