Dear Friends,

In the midst of GSSM’s 30th anniversary, we invite you to join us in a celebratory reflection of GSSM’s history and a glimpse ahead to the School’s bright future.

GSSM is committed to seeking out and advancing South Carolina’s most talented and motivated students, offering them a transforming education in science, mathematics, and engineering that cultivates joy in learning and builds the confidence to engage as ethical leaders with the world’s most significant issues.

The School’s 2,067 residential and virtual alumni and 415 current students are a testament to the ongoing benefits of that commitment. Seventy-seven percent of alumni work in STEM fields. Nearly half of the residential student body serve in a leadership role on campus. GSSM’s outreach programs and summer camps continue to expand, annually providing hands-on enrichment and training to 5,000+ middle and high school students and teachers across the state.

As a public institution, GSSM is largely funded by the State of South Carolina. The GSSM Foundation’s generous donors and partners supplement GSSM’s state budget to help current and future students discover and maximize their potential. Because of this support, the GSSM Journey—grounded in student-centered excellence, opportunity, and inclusion—continues to thrive.

Thank you for your continued support of our School. Thank you for believing in our mission and helping us engage South Carolina’s brightest young minds.

The GSSM Foundation
