The mission of Palmetto Charter School is to create a superior learning environment founded upon the shared values of hard work, honor, self-discipline, and community and parental involvement, with the purpose of preparing students for academic and social success, in high school and beyond.

Dear PCS Families, Business Partners and Friends,


As you may know, PCS has an admissions waiting list and is growing to offer its superior learning environment to more students in our community. Property adjacent to the school was purchased in 2015 for expansion. Work on the new athletic field is now complete. The process is underway to design and build a 30,000 sq ft facility for new classrooms, a library, gymnasium, cafeteria, and administrative space.


Please help us grow and take advantage of the opportunity to double your contribution to PCS during the 2018 Giving Challenge. Each one of us can make a positive, lasting difference. Here is how:


•Between NOON May 1st and NOON May 2nd

•Go to the 2018 Giving Challenge web site (https://givingpartnerchallenge.org)

•Find ‘Palmetto Charter School’ using the search box

•Contribute between $25 and $100 using a credit card or debit card



Brian Bustle, Principal, Palmetto Charter School

We probably receive 5 or 6 inquiries a day from parents wanting information on how to get their child into PCS. Here are the basics....


Intent to Enroll forms are now available in our office and online for parents to download and fill out.

You can fax them, scan and email, take a picture and email, or snail mail to us. The KEY is making sure that you have this done in the month of March. It doesn't matter if we receive it on March 1st, or March 31st... (and because the 31st is a Saturday, we'll take them until 4pm on April 2nd)everyone has a fair chance at any spots we have available. You are welcome to attend one of our open houses, but you do not have to. If you should decide to attend, little hint... the second one tends to be less attended. Due to high demand, we don't typically do private tours. These Open Houses will answer all of your questions and give you a chance to look at our campus and meet our Faculty and Staff.

We fill any spots that we have available with siblings of existing families first. Then we put the forms in a hat and literally pull them one by one. We fill open spots and continue to pull forms to create our waiting list. We try to have this completed by mid-April and will contact you via email of your status.

You can visit our Registration page for more information.
