This announcement sets the stage for forthcoming details related to the new school, the impact it will have on local students and the direct value it will add to the SC manufacturing community, aerospace sector and various other SC-based industries. Orangeburg Consolidated School District 4 recognizes and encourages the industrial growth in the area and plans on crafting the next generation of South Carolina’s workforce to meet the needs of incoming industries.
The school’s pilot program will begin Fall 2017 and will offer incoming Freshmen who have completed advanced course work an opportunity to join. It will also offer Senior students access to mentoring and internships prior to graduation.
The curriculum focuses on not only the state-identified requirements of a SC graduate but also the soft skills that ensure students are able to be confident and conscientious corporate citizens once they graduate. Students can take one of two paths: college prep for entrance into 2- and 4- year collegiate programs or work-ready courses for direct entry into the SC manufacturing workforce after graduation.
Students will participate in Project Based Learning and will perform Community Partnership Projects including a wheelchair build for local disabled veterans and a food-bank partnership packaging meals for Thanksgiving. Through these projects students will learn hands-on skills related to product assembly, quality management, material kitting, logistics, time management and working in teams – all critical skills for the next generation of SC’s workforce.
Local companies are encouraged to partner with the program during the 2017-2018 pilot year to offer guest speakers, mentors, internships and various other forms of support. Volunteer and Donation opportunities are available via the school’s website.
A July 27, 2017 Open House event is being planned. Additional details will be announced via the school's website. To learn more, please consult: www.nextgenmagnet.org.
