STAR CENTER FOR LEARNING
Mission Statement
The STAR Center for Learning mission is to prepare students academically and socially through short-term intervention programs to become successful, productive citizens in their perspective communities in an ever-changing global society.
The STAR Center for Learning is located in Cope, South Carolina, in the central region of the state. Cope is 44 miles south of the capitol city of Columbia, 89 miles west of Charleston, and 99 miles southwest of Hilton Head Island. Cope is located along South Carolina state highway 332 and 0.5 miles from US Highway 301 South.
 
We serve students from the communities of Branchville, Neeses, Springfield, Cordova, Cope, and Southern Orangeburg who attend schools within Orangeburg Consolidated School District four and Bamberg School District One and Two. The STAR Center serves more than one hundred students per year. The district built a state of the art alternative school to serve middle school students. STAR (Students Taking Alternative Routes) was opened in 2002 for occupancy. The school contains five classrooms, one computer lab, one science lab, a distance learning lab, a conference room, several offices, and a cafeteria.
 
Students can attend the STAR Center for Learning by way of three programs:
 
Middle Grade Matters
Jump Start to High School
Disciplinary Placement
 
 
Middle Grades Matter (MGM)
The target population is 6th and 7th grade students, who are over-age for their grade level. The MGM program provides intensive academic interventions for middle school students. Students are recommended by their principals or are self-referred and must be interviewed for admission. Classroom grades, MAP test scores, and behavior are some indicators that will be used to monitor academic progress and placement for students returning to their home schools. Summer school is required.
 
 
Jump Start to High School (JSHS)
The target population is 8th grade students who are over-age for their grade level. The JSHS provides an academic program designed to help students receive high school credits toward graduation. Students are recommended by their principals or are self-referred and must be interviewed for admissions. Classroom grades, MAP test scores, and behavior are some indicators that will be used to monitor academic progress and placement for students returning to their home schools. Summer school is required.
 
 
Disciplinary Placement
Students are placed at the STAR Center for learning by the Assistant Superintendent for Operations and Planning or the District Hearing Panel as a result of disciplinary challenges. All students will remain at the STAR Center for a minimum of forty-five (45) days and must successfully complete the point system before being considered for return to his or her school at the beginning of the nine week period. Students must bring their books from their home schools. Students placed at the STAR Center for disciplinary reasons may not drive to school. Students must ride the bus or have parents/guardians bring them to school and pick them up. All students attending STAR are furnished bus transportation.
 
 
Mandatory uniforms are required for all programs at the STAR Center for Learning.

Orangeburg Consolidated school district Four reserves the right to deny admission based on the individual student's level of offenses, number of offenses, conduct during the interview, and his/her verbal commitment to the program.
