Next Gen Magnet School offers high school students

an innovative career pathway program fortified with real-world, contextual experiences that capture direct work-force and college-ready skills.


Using relevant project-based learning (PBL) along with Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) state-approved curriculum, the program exceeds the requirements found in the Profile of the South Carolina Graduate by promoting deep understanding of key skills (communication, collaboration, creativity and critical thinking).


These are also the skills that South Carolina industries crave.

         How It Works


Students apply for the program as incoming freshmen and select their own focused career path offering them individualized instruction- unique in both design and implementation.


The program will offer opportunities for credit-earning internships and access to South Carolina industry experts. Program graduates will be prepared to transition to a 2-or 4- year college program or move into a lucrative industrial career immediately after high school.

What is Project Based Learning (PBL)?

"PBL makes school more engaging for students. Today’s students, more than ever, often find school to be boring. In PBL, students are active, not passive; a project engages their hearts and minds, and provides real-world relevance for learning.

  • PBL improves learning. 
  • PBL builds success skills for college, career, and life. 
  • PBL helps address standards. 
  • PBL provides opportunities for students to use technology. 
  • PBL makes teaching more enjoyable and rewarding. 
  • PBL connects students and schools with communities and the real world. 
  • PBL promotes educational equity. "
