    GSSM ACCELERATE:  SOUTH CAROLINA'S ENGINEERING LAUNCHPAD

    To further expand opportunities for students, HCS has partnered with the SC Governor's School for Science and Math (GSSM) to offer a virtual engineering program for qualified students.  GSSM's Accelerate virtual engineering program is designed for qualified 10th-12th students to earn the first year of college engineering credits while remaining in their home high schools. Interested students would apply as 9th graders and must be willing to commit to a three-year program with GSSM.  The deadline to apply is February 15 for the subsequent year. 

    GSSM will hold an information session for interested students and parents beginning in January each year.  More information may be found on the GSSM website.  Questions regarding the program and admission requirements should be directed to the GSSM at (843) 383-3901 x3982 or accelerate@gssm.k12.sc.us.
