Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Augusta Circle where there has been a Legacy of Excellence and Leadership since 1923. We train young minds for academic achievement and social responsibility; many of our graduates are recognized as national, state, and local leaders. Our tradition of academic strength has been acknowledged with the Palmetto’s Finest School award, the National Blue Ribbon School of Excellence award, and multiple Palmetto Gold/Silver awards. 

Augusta Circle is a secure environment where students experience a rigorous curriculum based on SC State Standards. We partner with parents and grandparents to share our time, energy, and resources. Our family-friendly learning environment has earned us the South Carolina Red Carpet Award.

Our motto, “Kids are the Heart of Augusta Circle,” says it all.
