• Welcome to the Academic Magnet Foundation! Our mission, put simply, is to enhance the long-term excellence of Academic Magnet High School. Working closely with PIE (Partners in Education), the Foundation supports leading-edge enrichment opportunities that ensure the school’s high standards for quality, achievement and stewardship for years to come. Key initiatives funded by AMF include new student transition programs, professional development for teaching excellence, and school awareness and diversity efforts. Specifically, AMF fully funds the Summer Scholars program for new students, supports AP Capstone training for teachers, and coordinates the highly successful Advancing Charleston Excellence (ACE) program to recruit and mentor high-performing students from high-poverty index Charleston middle schools.


    During this extraordinarily difficult moment in time, we are all being asked to adapt – to find creative and sustainable ways to serve. Now, more than ever, the Foundation needs your support. Stay tuned in the coming weeks on how you as parents, business owners, and community leaders can contribute. This October, we’ll be launching our annual Thanks for Giving campaign - a great opportunity to help ensure the long-term success of our exceptional school.
