The Greer Middle College Planning Committee received approval to locate a public charter high school on Greenville Technical College’s Greer campus. The committee has two excellent models: Greenville Tech Charter High School (located on the Barton campus) and Brashier Middle College Charter High School (located on the Brashier campus in Simpsonville).
GMC opened in the fall of 2008 with the first freshman class of 100 students. By adding a new freshmen class each year, GMC has reached about 400 students, having their first graduating class in 2012.
Our school admittance is centered on the concept of open enrollment. Open enrollment allows any student in the school district of Greenville County to attend, with no admission tests or tuition. Open enrollment only applies if we have less than 100 applicants; if we have more than 100 applicants, by state law, students will be selected by lottery. This ensures that every child wishing to come to our school has an equal opportunity of being accepted. With a mix of challenge and support, the charter school offers students and their parents a unique choice for their high school education.
