The Legacy Charter School in Greenville, SC, focuses on preparing students for college and features smaller class sizes and a longer school day and school year. The school has an arrangement with Greenville Technical College for their students to start taking classes as early as the 10th grade for both high school and college credit. In addition, they are the only public school in South Carolina to provide physical education five times per week to all children.

The charter school will use $5.7 million in bond funding through JEDA to renovate and improve buildings at the school’s Parker Campus and to construct a health and wellness center near the campus, all which is connected to the revitalization of Greenville’s historic West End district.

The JEDA funding will help maintain 38 existing jobs as well as create 37 more within 24 months of the project’s completion.
