Limestone Charter Association

Since 1845, Limestone University has a history of leading the way in education.  That dedication to learning continued in 2021, with Limestone University making the commitment to become one of the first institutions of higher education charter school authorizers in South Carolina. The University has created a separate entity, the Limestone Charter Association (LCA), to oversee daily operations of its charter schools, but will be an integral part of the Association.

The mission of LCA is to serve as the cornerstone of charter school authorizing in South Carolina and to facilitate a positive, educational environment that fosters school autonomy through support and oversight of its member schools.  LCA believes it is an authorizer’s role to support and monitor the school and it is the school’s role to teach the children and make decisions in the best interest of its students. LCA will ensure:

  • To maintain school autonomy at the highest level of priority. Charter school boards must always be given the authority to govern their schools without interference.
  • To maintain timely and effective communication with each school and to provide school-desired support through mentoring, training, and resources.
  • To employ personnel who have done the work, been in the trenches, and understand the day-to-day activities of a charter school.
  • To authorize high quality schools and to provide appropriate guidance prior to and after charter approval. LCA recognizes each charter school is unique and will support them accordingly.
