Since 2011, Teach For America has worked alongside our partners in South Carolina to create opportunities for kids in our most underserved communities.
Founded in 2011 with a corps of 30, Teach For America South Carolina has more than ten years of impact in the state.
Today, our teachers reach over 32,000 students across the Pee Dee, Lowcountry, and Upstate regions. Our network includes both early career educators, veteran teachers enrolled in our SC Impact Fellowship program, and TFASC teachers who chose to stay in the classroom past their two-year commitment. We are also proud to partner with South Carolina school districts to bring our expertise in new teacher development to all first- and second-year teachers in partner districts through our New Teacher Academy.
The scale of our impact is elevated by the prioritization and cultivation of deep partnerships in the communities we serve. Moved by the passion and potential of this place, we are committed to ending educational inequities for all South Carolina students.

“Growing up in South Carolina, I wanted to be an advocate for communities that looked like mine. My tie to the state has helped me connect more deeply with my students and their families.”
