Our Mission

Liberty STEAM Charter works to provide all students with equal access to a world class K-12 education in an academically rigorous and student-centered learning environment, creating graduates who will be thoughtful and engaged citizens prepared to take on the leadership challenges of the 21st century.

Our Vision

In partnership with our families and the community, our vision is to provide real-world interdisciplinary, personalized, and project-based learning experiences through a STEAM-based academic program where graduates become the next generation of leaders, ?employers, and employees who contribute to the economic well-being of their communities and families.

Liberty STEAM Charter will offer a PK-12 STEAM-focused, project-based and personalized learning model that is innovative and unlike any other school in Sumter. Our model is designed to prepare students, who we will call scholars, with the academic foundation to pursue college or university studies if they so choose, but LSC is also designed to ensure that scholars leave high school with real world skills and habits to be successful in industry careers that offer meaningful salaries.

Key pillars of the school that will drive expansive learning opportunities and successes for scholars include: Commitment to Excellence, Top Quality Teaching, Collective Leadership, Whole Child Approach, and Family and Community Engagement. LSC is committed to a high-quality, standards-based curriculum, more time on task, significant exposure to enrichment opportunities, a data-driven learning environment, two teachers in each Primary Academy classroom with smaller classroom sizes, a comprehensive MTSS model to ensure that the needs of all scholars are being met, and an innovative high school model with a set of learning PATHWAYS designed to link real-world project-based learning and student connections to college and fields of industry.

Taken together, these components of the educational model will create an “academically rigorous and student-centered learning environment” where LSC scholars will thrive. As a public school that will be accountable to families, its charter sponsor, and taxpayers, LSC believes deeply in accountability and has a founding planning committee that is committed to ensuring the academic, financial, and operational success of LSC. LSC's K-12 progression includes 4 Academies, which will help to personalize student learning and create smaller learning environments. LSC is committed to the idea that some scholars may need extra support and additional resources to ensure that all scholars can attain a world-class education.

The need is urgent, thus the time to act is now. In creating a charter school where rigor, joy, and community are the essential keys to success, we are on a mission is to change the narrative about what is possible for the children of Sumter County so that every child is equally positioned to succeed emotionally, academically, and socially.
