Academy of South Carolina
(CASC), an accredited, full-time,
online public charter school, will begin their 2016-2017 school year on
August 23. According to a spring 2016 survey conducted by Edge Research,
93% of the families with students enrolled in the school during the
2015-2016 school year felt that their child had benefitted academically
from the curriculum.

CASC offers an individualized approach to learning, using award-winning
curriculum to ensure every student receives an exceptional learning
experience. CASC is open to all students in grades K through 12 who
reside in South Carolina. The school provides courses in language
arts/English, math, science, history, world languages, art and music, as
well as core, elective, and Advanced Placement (AP) courses for high
school students. State-certified teachers provide instruction, guidance
and support, and regularly interact with students and parents via email,
web-based classrooms, online discussions, phone and face-to-face
meetings. As a public school option, there is no tuition.

“I have watched my children blossom with CASC more so than any other
school they have attended,” said Ada Murcier, whose children, Lydia and
Logan, will be starting 7th and 5th grade,
respectively, this fall. “Their growth has been amazing, not only
educationally but in their overall confidence. With the support from
teachers and staff, we can truly work at the pace we need and make sure
we master all the material.”

New for the 2016-2017 school year, CASC will offer the Destinations
Career Program, giving students exposure to relevant technical and
specialty trade skills from career technical education (CTE) courses
built around two career areas: Business and Administration and
Information Technology. These engaging, content-rich courses expand the
traditional education experience and maximize a student’s ability to
succeed in the community and workforce. Successful completion of these
courses may help students prepare for industry certification tests after

At CASC advanced learners have the ability to move faster in subjects at
which they excel, while students who need more time to grasp a concept
can do so at a pace better suited for their needs. Students who need
extra instructional support or want to participate in small group
tutoring can take advantage of CASC
Learning Labs
located in Columbia, Greenville, Myrtle Beach,
Charleston, Aiken, Florence and Rock Hill.

CASC also provides live online access to the small group tutoring
sessions that take place at its Learning Labs. This means that students
working independently at home can access and become part of the tutoring
sessions taking place at one of the CASC Learning Labs. This is in
addition to the live, online Class Connect sessions with state-certified
teachers that students are required to attend as part of their daily
school schedule.

“Our teachers and staff are focused on the individual needs and
interests of our students and families, and work to ensure our students
reach their academic goals,” said David Crook, Head of School at Cyber
Academy of South Carolina. “As the only virtual charter school in the
state offering a blended learning experience using both technology and
in-person support, CASC helps students learn the skills they need to
succeed in school and beyond.”

Earlier this summer, CASC challenged enrolled families to prevent summer
‘brain drain’ by offering students free access to LearnBop,
a self-paced solution that simulates a one-on-one, personalized math
tutoring experience. The award-winning online program will continue to
be available free of charge throughout the fall and can be used
alongside the regular math curriculum to build math skills or prepare
for high-level exams.

CASC is still accepting enrollments for this fall. To learn more about
