Supporting and enhancing the Upstate's K–12 education system

The greatest strength of Upstate South Carolina is its people. Our greatest challenge then is to ensure that all of our residents have the opportunity to reach their full potential. We must promote and support a culture that enhances human potential through educational achievement, workforce training, cultural and creative activities, and healthy living. Read through our Human Potential programs to learn more about how we support Upstate residents.
