HCS New Teacher Academy

  • Registration for the 2022 New Teacher Academy will open soon!

  • Welcome to Horry County Schools! We are glad you have chosen to teach in our school system, and we are eager to help you get ready for your students. Please plan to attend Horry County Schools’ 2022 New Teacher Academy, Monday and Tuesday, July 25 and 26. The academy is designed specifically for teachers who are new to the profession and/or new to Horry County Schools.

    New Teacher Academy is a four-day event. Sessions will be hosted by district specialists. School-based sessions will also be available. Academy sessions will focus on research-based practices, including effective instructional strategies and classroom management. The exact format of this event will be determined at a later date and will be shared with participants. Participation is not mandatory, but is highly recommended. Because this event takes place prior to the contracted school year, most participating educators will receive a stipend for attending sessions.


  • Pre-registration is required, so we can plan appropriately for sessions. Please continue to visit this page for the latest information.

    All educators attending New Teacher Academy will need to bring their HCS issued devices to New Teacher Academy. Plan to pick up your assigned laptop and docking station from the technology department located in Building C at the District Office prior to the start of the sessions.
