Conway, SC — Horry County

The South Carolina Jobs-Economic Development Authority (JEDA) has issued $21.3 million in Educational Facilities Revenue Bonds for Atlantic Collegiate Academy (ACA), for a new grade 9-12 charter school in Conway.

ACA opened this year in Beach Church in Myrtle Beach and is using the tax-exempt financing for the acquisition, construction and equipping of a new facility at 5085 Bear Bluff Road in Conway.

“Our focus on sports, athletics, work, and volunteerism gives our students a new opportunity on the Grand Strand to grow and flourish, and JEDA financing is a key to helping us meet our mission.”

“JEDA financing has provided favorable options for South Carolina’s educational community for decades, and assisting ACA with their new campus has been a pleasure and privilege,” said Jesse A. Smith, Executive Director of JEDA in Columbia.
