Beyond middle school, BEST Skills Academy offers a high school learning center through partnership with Odyssey online charter school

BEST Skills Academy is committed to a quality program that sets every student up for success in higher education. While not a requirement of each student, our educational mentors walk with students down this path throughout their academic journey. 

We believe parents and guardians are a child’s primary educator. At BEST Skills Academy, we partner with parents, and value open communication and close collaboration. We aim to serve parents in the life-development of their children by creating vital relationships with youth pastors, mentors and community leaders. These partnerships will provide students with worldview-shaping environments that will equip them for the life that awaits them.

Every child deserves the opportunity to reach their full potential, which is why BEST Skills Academy operates on an affordable sliding tuition scale based on parents’ income. As a nonprofit organization, BEST Skills Academy seeks to provide each student with high quality educational resources built to meet each student where they are – and where they can go.

BEST Skills Academy is a member of the South Carolina Independent School Association.
