New School to Offer Alternative Options Amid Pandemic Fears
Wednesday, August 05, 2020
As the start of the school year looms, Lowcountry parents are eager to find a balance between school and safety amid the COVID crisis. The uncertainty of the upcoming school year prompted Daniel Island mom, Stefanie Swackhamer, to do some proactive parenting. The mother of two boys decided to open a safe alternative to traditional public schooling on Daniel Island. Elevate Learning Project will be a Montessori inspired K-2 program. Swackhamer has over 15 years of community based work and was a teacher in North Charleston where she started a Literacy Through Latin program. Swackhamer partnered with Adrienne Day, an educator with a variety of experience, including elementary public education and Montessori.
