The new Carolina Shores Acceleration Academy (CSAA) was featured recently in a news article in a group of Horry County, SC, newspapers and the MyHorryNews.com website.
The article, headlined “New Charter School Hopes to Meet Students Where They Are,” explained that CSAA is a new, free public charter high school that offers a personalized education to students for whom traditional schools are not a good fit.
“We are designed to support those students who want a different route than the traditional education model,” Dr. Jacinta Bryant, regional vice president for Acceleration Academies, told reporter Katie Powell.
Bryant said that many students had been thrown off course by the Covid pandemic, and that many young people who choose to enroll at CSAA need the flexibility to care for young children, support their families with full-time work and learn in an environment that’s quieter and less crowded than traditional classroom settings.
“We allow that flexible education model for that type of (graduation) candidate and we are able to get them back in school more,” Bryant said, adding that Acceleration Academies welcome and celebrate young people of all races, sexual orientations and gender identities. “We celebrate all that encompasses the student. The whole student. We celebrate and complement their needs.”
