*Because Accelerate primarily communicates with applicants via email, students must have an email address. We strongly recommend that you supply us with at least two email addresses, one for the student and a different one for the parent, so that we may contact you in a timely fashion. Please do not use a student’s school or district email address; these email providers often block emails from outside the school or district. Free email providers, such as Gmail or Yahoo, are good alternatives. Emails from GSSM will come from @governors.school, @gssm.k12.sc.us or from @scgssm.org.
Please note that the Virtual Programs applicant interviews (Virtual): Saturday, March 12, 2022, changed to Saturday, March 19, 2022.

Accelerate applicants will take part in a Math Assessment test as part of the application review process. The assessment will take approximately 45 mins with 30 questions that do not allow for use of a calculator or any electronic device. The questions are designed to measure a student’s understanding of Algebra I and Algebra II*. This is required for invited applicants only. This test is used only for admissions purposes. For students who are admitted to the school, another assessment will be given to determine final math placement.
*scoring will take into consideration a student’s status for having completed or currently being enrolled in Algebra II.
A representative from the Virtual Program will be hosting information sessions in all partner school districts. We hope you can join us to learn more about this amazing opportunity! Dates, locations, and times are being added regularly.
