Good Afternoon, League Academy! I hope you have all had a great weekend! The holidays are definitely in full swing at League Academy. We had a successful PTA movie afternoon on Friday along with our PJ Day fundraiser. We are thankful for our active PTA and all they do to support us. 


8th Grade parents: Your 8th graders will be taking the MAP growth test on Monday and Tuesday this week in reading and math. Students will be testing during 3rd, 4th, and 5th periods. Please make sure your students have a good night’s sleep and eat a good breakfast. Breakfast is free for all students at League Academy. 


We have so much to be thankful for this year! I saw a quote today that really made me think- “Replace anxiety with gratefulness”. I think through the next two weeks, since there is so much going on, I will live by this mantra. 


This week we begin our holiday showcases. We begin with our Dance Showcase at 6:30 on Tuesday. The League Academy Orchestra will perform on Thursday at 6:30. Performances will be in the auditorium and cost $3.00 admission.  Our basketball teams play on Monday and Thursday this week. Monday both teams play Beck at home and Thursday we play at Tanglewood. The girls begin at 5:30 and the boys play after. Admission to all GCS athletic events is $3.00. Please adhere to the GCS Clear Bag Policy. 


I am so thankful that we all get to share and celebrate these wonderful students this time of the year. I am grateful for basketball games and student performances. I am thankful for our students and their families. Wishing you all the best this holiday season.

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!
