About Palmetto Youth Academy
Interested in learning more?


Palmetto Youth Academy (PYA) originated from the long-term passion and persistence of several parents, educators and community members who, not only recognized the need for a more individualized program, but also developed and implemented a plan to effectively meet these diverse needs. This planning committee was established in 2003, the charter application was approved in 2004 and Palmetto Youth Academy opened August 2005.

In 2014, PYA was approved to include students K-5, 1st and 2nd grades to begin during the 2014-2015 school year.  

PYA is chartered for students in K-5 through grade 6. All teachers and paraprofessionals meet SC Highly Qualified Status as required by "No Child Left Behind"
