Our Mission

Delivering a top-quality, special education environment requires continual investment in new forms of advanced learning, as well as new methods of delivery. The SC School for the Deaf and the Blind has evolved to meet this need by serving more than 250 students at the Spartanburg campus and more than 1,400 children through statewide outreach programs.

The foundation is a nonprofit organization supporting the school’s on-campus and outreach programs by raising money to supplement state and federal funding. We’ve contributed more than $15 million to offset the high costs associated with advanced instructional programs, technologies and equipment, capital improvements, and personal student needs. These additional resources are vital in helping the school keep pace with the specific educational needs of children with hearing and sight impairments.
