The Charter Institute at Erskine experiment is working: SC Report Card data shows charter school growth

In 2017, the Charter Institute at Erskine (Institute) was established by Erskine College as a charter school authorizer to improve public education across the state of South Carolina. After only one year of operations, the recently released South Carolina Report Card details schools that transferred to the Institute are moving the needle unlike ever before.

Charter Institute at Erskine CEO and Superintendent Cameron Runyan said, “When the Institute was created, we made a commitment to be fair, transparent, and consistent in everything we do as an organization. While our schools are held to a higher level of accountability than others, we walk with them each step of the way offering top notch support because we are a partnership. We celebrate this data as it is a testament to the admirable work of both the schools and the Institute.”

The Charter Institute at Erskine commends the South Carolina Department of Education for releasing the South Carolina Report Card to allow schools the time to focus on school improvement opportunities. For more information on the Institute and its schools, please visit
