What are Choice Programs?
Rock Hill Schools is committed to providing quality instructional programs that promote world class knowledge and skills and build life and career characteristics in our students. The district's Choice programs are designed to create well-rounded students by challenging them with opportunities that help meet their needs, nurture their talents, interests and aptitudes and expose them to new experiences.
The district currently has seven Choice programs that are tied to a distinctive course of study. Each program seeks to develop engaging and meaningful opportunities for students at the elementary, middle, and high school levels. School choice programs foster parental involvement and high expectations, and give parents the opportunity to choose the school that will meet their child’s needs.
Traditionally, children are assigned to a public school according to where they live. Rock Hill Schools Choice programs allow families to select the program that is most suited for their child. All students who live within the Rock Hill Schools attendance zone are eligible to apply for Choice programs, and admission is based on successful completion of the application process as well as program availability and capacity. Once students are accepted, they enroll in the host school of the program. Transportation is provided for all Choice programs regardless of where a student resides within the district's attendance zone.
