SC Calvert Academy is located in Columbia, SC and is one of 11 schools in Sc Public Charter School District. It is a charter school that serves 282 students in grades K-8.
Charter schools are public schools, but differ from traditional public schools in that they are independent and are operated by educators, parents, community leaders, educational entrepreneurs, or others. Funding for charter schools is based on designated local or state educational organizations. Those organizations are responsible for monitoring and assessing the quality and effectiveness of education, but permit the schools to operate outside of the traditional public school education system.
SC Calvert Academy did not make AYP in 2011. Under No Child Left Behind, a school makes Adequate Yearly Progress (AYP) if it achieves the minimum levels of improvement determined by the state of South Carolina in terms of student performance and other accountability measures.
