Mission and Vision

The Palmetto Excel Center is South Carolina’s only charter high school that serves adult learners who want to earn high school diplomas. Located in North Charleston on the campus of Trident Technical College, the in-person school provides tuition-free education and also grants industry-recognized certifications. The center addresses the challenges that hinder many individuals from pursuing or completing their high school educations due to life commitments and circumstances. 

The Palmetto Excel Center is committed to removing barriers to education and addressing the needs of each student. We are dedicated to understanding where our students are and meeting them there.


At The Palmetto Excel Center, we build rapport and a collaborative community of interdependent teams that foster a safe sense of belonging where our students’ journey across the bridge to success.


At The Palmetto Excel Center we create an environment where students are empowered to genuinely engage, challenged to take ownership of their learning, and are highly motivated to reach their goals.
