Ascent Classical(TM) Academies Announces Temporary Location for Irmo Campus Opening Fall 2024

Published May 21, 2024

COLUMBIA, SC / ACCESSWIRE / May 21, 2024 / Ascent Classical™ Academies is pleased to announce its Irmo school has secured a temporary location for the 2024-2025 school year at St. Andrews Presbyterian Church, located at 6952 St Andrews Rd, Columbia, South Carolina.

The church's education wing will house grades K-8 including two additional sections, one for sixth and a second to be determined for either fourth or fifth grade, to meet the high demand the school has received. Ascent Classical™ is working closely with church leadership and the City of Irmo to ensure all classrooms are updated ahead of the school's first day of class on Aug. 8, 2024. 

This announcement is the latest milestone for Ascent Classical™ Academy's opening year. The tuition-free school offers an American Classical Education and will open with grades K-8, adding one grade each year until reaching K-12 matriculation. 

The classical education model centers on a well-rounded education in the liberal arts and sciences, including daily fine arts and physical education classes. Students wear uniforms and do not use technology in the classroom, instead relying on teacher-led instruction and a content-rich, time-tested curriculum delivered in an orderly and disciplined environment.  

As a public charter school, Ascent Classical™ Academy is open to all students and is enrolling now. Families interested in learning more about the school can visit to find an upcoming parent information meeting, review sample curriculum maps, and submit an online application.
