The Palmetto School at CAH was established in 2004 to meet the educational needs of abused and neglected children who were placed at the Children’s Attention Home in Rock Hill, South Carolina. We have also have served Children from Safe Passage and Pilgrim’s Inn.
We are now opening our doors to the children in the community who are struggling in school and need individualized instruction. Due to the class sizes at The Palmetto School our students are able to make major gains both academically and behaviorally.
The Palmetto School has two full time teachers and two part-time teachers. The Palmetto School is much smaller than most schools and has to receive 60% of its funding from grants, private donors, and fundraising events. The Musical, Drama, and Visual Art Teachers are volunteers that are professional musicians and/or artists that have been teaching music, drama, and art to children for over 14 years.
