Ascent Classical™ Academies Announces Temporary Location for Fort Mill Campus Opening Fall 2024

February 20, 2024 • Rock Hill, South Carolina 

Ascent Classical™ Academies is pleased to announce its Fort Mill school has secured a temporary location for the 2024-2025 school year at Hope Fellowship Church, located at 505 University Drive Rock Hill, South Carolina.  

The church’s recently updated facility includes office space, classrooms, and storage space in a standalone building, as well as several modular units. Ascent Classical™ is working closely with church leadership and the South Carolina Department of Education’s Office of School Facilities to ensure all classrooms are updated ahead of the school’s first day of class on Aug. 8, 2024. 

This announcement is the latest milestone for Ascent Classical™ Academy’s opening year. The tuition-free school offers an American Classical Education and will open with grades K-8, adding one grade each year until reaching K-12 matriculation. 

The classical education model centers on a well-rounded education in the liberal arts and sciences, including daily fine arts and physical education classes. Students wear uniforms and do not use technology in the classroom, instead relying on teacher-led instruction and a content-rich, time-tested curriculum delivered in an orderly and disciplined environment.  

As a public charter school, Ascent Classical™ Academy is open to all students and is enrolling now. Families interested in learning more about the school can visit to find an upcoming parent information meeting, review sample curriculum maps, and submit an online application.
