This program was established to recruit talented South Carolina high school seniors into the teaching profession and to help them develop leadership qualities. To qualify, applicants must be South Carolina residents and demonstrate high academic achievement, a history of service to the school and community, and a desire to teach South Carolina's children. The application process is rigorous and includes an online application, submission of three references on the approved reference form, and the submission of a transcript and ACT/SAT scores. The second phase of the application process consists of an interview and 3-5 minute presentation in front of a team of three educators and a 30 minute timed written response. Invitations to the interview are based on the application score and not all applicants will be invited to participate in the interview process.
