School Choice Rally for Education in South Carolina

The School Choice Rally in South Carolina is Wednesday, January 23th at 10 am. We’re meeting at the Metropolitan Convention Center and marching up to the State House for the rally. It’s the state’s biggest celebration of the educational choices parents have available. Many local celebrations are going on all over the state and around the nation for National School Choice week: always the last week of January

Celebrate National School Choice week at South Carolina's largest School Choice rally. Come represent your right to choose the best educational option for your child!

Here in South Carolina, parents can choose between a number of educational options for whatever is in the best interest of the child. We are very proud of these options. The School Choice Rally is a great opportunity to come celebrate and represent the choices we have as homeschoolers.

Educational Options in South Carolina

Empower SC has more information about the various educational options and resources. You can read stories of educational success and innovation…plus submit your story, too!

  • Charter Schools are public funded schools independently managed without zoning limitations of the school districts. Charter schools have the flexibility to choose their own curriculum.
  • Virtual Schools are another great educational option for over 8,000 students in South Carolina. There are a number of public funded and also private virtual schools to choose from. VirualSC is a supplemental virual program for credit recovery and accelerated learning for public, private and homeschool students.

  • Private Schools may be traditional or online, but are privately funded with tuition fees. Private schools may have a religious mission statement and freedom to choose their curriculum. South Carolina has over 400 private schools listed at South Carolina Independent Schools Association (SCISA).
  • Home Schools offer parents the flexibility to DIY their child’s education from scratch.

  1. […] Much of the promotion is done online and thru social media. Plug in to the free publicity. Show some of the faces of homeschooling–and homeschool groups. You can also connect to other events in your area–maybe find a rally like My SC Education Rally. […]
