• What is a public-private partnership?

    Meeting Street Schools pioneered the concept of a public-private partnership between school districts and private contributors. In 2014, with the opening of MSE@Brentwood in partnership with Charleston County School District, MSE@Brentwood became the first of its kind public-private not-for-profit partnership school in South Carolina. Subsequently, Meeting Street Academy- Spartanburg partnered with Spartanburg District 7 (“D7”) in 2016 to become the second public-private partnership school in our state.

    Within these partnership structures, MSS provides its targeted and proven model in some of the most challenged schools in the most under-resourced neighborhoods. With the shared commitment of CCSD and D7, we are working to create a sustainable model that could serve public schools throughout South Carolina.
