The Georgetown School of Arts and Sciences is proud to announce that the school has been admitted as a full member to the South Carolina Independent School Association.
SCISA, founded in 1965, is the major school association for independent schools in South Carolina and the only nationally affiliated accrediting organization for independent schools in the state.
It organizes the major athletic and educational competitions for independent schools in the region.
“Since August we have had permission to participate in SCISA-sponsored events, such as sports and the drama competition,” said Dr. Gary Gates, Head of School, “This good news is just the seal of approval that makes our relationship official.”
SCISA membership will allow the school to continue to compete in a wide range of sporting and academic events, like the SCISA State Spelling Bee, the One Act Play Competition, Quiz Bowl Tournament and the State Literary Meet, as well as give it access to SCISA professional development and school improvement workshops.
Gates also said that he was especially happy that The Georgetown School was able to join in its first year because the process normally takes two years, but that SCISA made an exception because of the confidence they had in the success of the school.
The Georgetown School is a non-profit community-oriented private school in the heart of Georgetown.
It is committed to academic, artistic and athletic excellence for all students who wish to attend college, regardless of race, color, or ability to pay.
