• 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.


    Thanks to a generous AMHS community, our annual fall fundraising campaign was a resounding success! Proceeds will be used to support proven, ongoing programs and several urgent needs for innovation. Our most critical need currently is to improve existing technology to better facilitate dual learning modes in each classroom. Magnet students are at the heart of all we do and these initiatives will make a profound and lasting difference in their lives - now and beyond COVID-19.
