School Choice Headquarters

Parents know from personal experience that all children learn differently.  Our district-wide school choice program frees students from the old “one-size-fits-all” model of education and offers ways to learn that are customized to their personal talents and interests.  By actively engaging students, we build their confidence, increase their knowledge and skills, and put them on course for success in school and in life.

If your child loves the visual or performing arts, we have schools that “fuse” the arts with their academic lessons.  If your child has a talent for languages, we have schools that offer Spanish and Chinese dual-language programs where students speak those languages in many of their academic classes.  And although all of our district’s schools teach math and science, we have schools that specialize in those subjects.  No matter what you choose, all of our schools have teaching and learning programs aimed at successful high school graduation and beyond!

This section of our website will introduce students and their families to the wide menu of instructional options available across the Beaufort County School District.  And the best part is that it doesn’t matter where you live!  If you apply and qualify, you can attend a school choice program outside your regular attendance zone.

An overview of the school choice program, answers to frequently asked questions and a calendar with key dates for parents and students can be found in the links on the left. 

All district schools maintain a Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics focus, as well as a core includes the arts, world languages and technology. In a number of cases, schools’ enrollment capacities will determine their ability to offer school choice.
