Year End Studies “YES” Program Coming Soon!

The Year End Studies “YES” Program is a student-centered, interest-based program that allows students to choose an area of study based on their interests. There will be a wide variety of courses offered, including outdoor activities, crafts, hobbies, and technology applications. The courses include a community impact component, which will allow our students to connect to the Spartanburg community by fundraising, performing, or assisting with projects to make a positive impact on others around them. This will take place in May in lieu of final exams for all classes except those that are high school credit bearing. Exams in high school credit bearing classes will be given before the start of the YES program in order for all students to participate.
