About High Point Academy

To be an exemplary school of choice for academically minded families.

To cultivate lifelong learners in a student-centered environment.

Who we are:
High Point Academy Spartanburg, SC is a tuition-free public charter school founded in 2014. We are Spartanburg County’s only charter school serving students in kindergarten through grade 12. All students in South Carolina are eligible to attend. High Point Academy is a South Carolina Public Charter School District member.

We strive to make every student feel welcome, connected, and part of the High Point Academy family. We ask our students, our parents, and our staff to uphold the High Point Academy Commitment (School-Parent Compact).

High Point Academy is led by certified teachers with an emphasis in S.T.E.A.M. (science, technology, engineering, arts, and math), education and character development, and leadership training. Through a partnership with family and community, each student will be challenged to achieve his or her highest potential in school and beyond the classroom.
