Dear Friends,

While the pace of discovery in STEM disciplines is breathtaking, and the demand for STEM-educated people in nearly every walk of life is exploding, the GSSM mission remains as solid as ever.

Since 1988, we have provided highly motived students with innovative opportunities to explore their passions in science, technology, mathematics, and engineering and helped them discover ways to apply their personal creativity in everything they do. 

Twenty-nine years later, we celebrate 1,889 alumni around the world, 77 percent of whom work in STEM fields. We celebrate a residential student body at full capacity and an expanding virtual program. We celebrate outreach programs that touch more than 5,000 students and teachers across South Carolina. And we celebrate the donors and partners who joined us in our mission. We could not do it without you.

As we look to the future, we’re embarking on an ambitious strategic plan that focuses on bringing GSSM’s own brand of student-centered excellence to a larger, broader audience. Building on the framework of past successes and current partnerships, we are dedicated to reaching talented students in every part of our state.

Thank you for your continued support of our School. Thank you for believing in our mission and helping us positively impact STEM education in South Carolina.
