Welcome to Saluda County Schools where our mission is to educate all students by providing a rigorous and relevant curriculum with supportive programs. To that end, we must equip our students with skills that will prepare them for the 21st century. Each member of our school district team is committed to this goal. With school and community working as partners, our students will be prepared to meet the challenges in the 21st century. Teaching students to become lifelong learners means addressing many needs. We must see that our students come to school healthy and are taught in a safe environment. While in school, they must be actively engaged in learning where they are taught and supported by caring adults. Further, we want our students immersed in a curriculum that will prepare them for work in a global economy.

Please take time to explore our website and visit our schools. You will find many great opportunities for our students in Saluda County Schools.
