    new to SC

    We are considering a move to South Carolina. I am looking for core class options for grades 5, 7, and 9. My preference is 2-3 days a week of instruction and the remainder at home. I have seen info about Arrows Academy. What other options are there? Has anyone used Arrows and can tell me what the home day work is like? Thanks for any insight!

    Civil War Camp - begins today!

    “Face by the rear rank, Company. About face!” Drills, marching and battle strategies make this unique camp both fun and educational for campers as they learn the details of a Civil War soldier’s life on the battlefield and back home on the plantation. Participants will be issued a toy musket for the week and receive a kepi hat, canteen and camp T-shirt to keep, as they explore the grounds and hike through the woods. They’ll build temporary shelters, participate in mock battles and hear from some of history’s most famous figures. Parents are invited on the last day to watch rookie soldiers demonstrate an actual American Civil War battle that they’ve studied throughout the week. This highly interactive camp enlists both boys and girls. For more information and to register, please visit https://www.lattaplantation.org/summer-camps

Through hands-on activities that tap their critical thinking skills, dynamic demonstrations and first-person presentations, participants will learn the interwoven histories of the different cultures that once lived and toiled on this land. The week includes plenty of outdoor fun like canoeing and water games, traditional and primitive skills learning and so much more!
