Congratulations! 


We are excited to welcome the National Schools to Watch team to League Academy on Monday to conduct our National Schools to Watch re-designation evaluation! We are excited to show the team how we have grown in the last three years, what we are doing right now, and our vision for the next five years.

South Carolina School Report Cards Release Date October 1

South Carolina School Report Cards

Below is the link to our School Report Card, released October 1, 2019 by the State Department of Education.  Based on a number of factors, each school in the state has been rated as excellent, good, average, below average, or unsatisfactory. Please click here to access the site: https://www.screportcards.com/ 

These report cards factor in multiple data points, test scores and surveys. The report attempts to measure a school’s academic achievement, student progress, college and career readiness and school climate. The reports will also include data on English Learners’ Progress, Student Safety, and Financial information. High School reports will factor in graduation rates.

If you have any questions or concerns related to our school’s ratings, feel free to contact our principal via email or phone.

8th Grade IGP Meetings

The Education and Economic Development Act (EEDA) requires ALL 8th grade students to participate in an Individual Graduation Plan (IGP) conference.  This is an individualized meeting with the student, a parent or other trusted adult, and a school counselor to discuss the student's career interests and review important information in preparation for high school.  IGPs will start late September, and we'd love for all students to have a parent/guardian or an appointed trusted adult attend their meeting!
