From Dependency to Contribution
More than 70% of Orangeburg Consolidated School District 4 Students do not attend 4-year colleges. While some students venture on to 2-year collegiate programs, the vast majority do not attend college at all. These students stay close to home due to funding limitations and support their families by performing minimum-wage work. In some cases, they end up relying on federal and state resources, exclusively.
Next Gen Magnet School allows students who are both preparing to go to college as well as students who will directly enter the work-force after graduation learn marketable skills that employers crave. Ideally, our students will be recognized for their highly-developed skill sets and earn an available role with a company offering health care, above-average entry-level salaries and other modern corporate benefits.
You can help them get the education they need to be stand-outs for manufacturing roles that offer strong and successful futures for years to come. Additionally, a work-ready employee base is an excellent draw for economic development and expanding companies who may be interested in relocating or starting an additional site in the Midlands area of SC.
