Welcome to ACPS on the Web
Sean Alford, Ph.D
I am honored to serve as Superintendent of the Aiken County Public School District and join you in excitement for a new school year. Through collaboration with members of our talented school community, Aiken County school leaders, teachers and staff, we will strive to provide a high quality and equitable educational experience for every student. I believe that to be the mission of public education and it is my personal commitment to you.
Together, our support of teachers and encouragement of parent and community involvement in our schools will allow us to identify, nurture and support the genius in every student. One thousand three hundred and eighty four students graduated from Aiken Countyís high schools last year and amassed more than sixty-three million dollars in scholarship offerings. Many of Aikenís Class of 2015 are attending the University of South Carolina, Clemson, and other in-state colleges and universities, including Furman, Presbyterian, Winthrop, Wofford and, my alma mater, The Citadel. Others will enter the workforce, join the military or continue their education at one of our nationís most prestigious schools.
It is my desire for every graduate of the Aiken County Public School District to successfully attain:
1. a South Carolina diploma;
2. a viable set of college entrance exam scores;
3. a portable work-based certificate;
4. an acceptance letter from a two or four year institution or the military, and;
5. the desire to use their talents in service to the community.
Our District has an impressive history to be proud of and the opportunity to redefine excellence while positioning our schools and students as the very best in South Carolina. Again, it is an honor to serve in this capacity and I extend best wishes for a wonderful school year.
