Palmetto Academy of Learning & Success is a tuition free, non-profit, public charter school. With a maximum classroom size of 18 students, our small classroom sizes allow us to create a diverse learning environment that accommodates each student's individual differences and learning styles to enhance their development. PALS has high expectations, both academically and behaviorally, for all students.

Family involvement is critical to student achievement and is highly encouraged at PALS. Various activities are planned throughout the year to allow parents, teachers, administration, and students to interact in a less formal environment. The PALS community becomes a network of support that reinforces the character development as well as maximizing the academic potential of each student in preparation for their success as life-long learners.

PALS Open Enrollment period for the 2020-2021 school year ended on March 13, 2020.  Applications (originals, not photocopies) will also be accepted via mail to 3021 Fred Nash Blvd, Myrtle Beach, SC 29577.  Applications received after the open enrollment deadline are considered on a space available basis.  Each year following Open Enrollment, a lottery is conducted.  At the conclusion of the lottery, all students will be placed on a waiting list for the remainder of the school year.  After all currently enrolled students have been placed, the waiting list will be utilized to fill all remaining vacancies for the school year.  Parents will be notified if they have a student who has been accepted to attend the school. If your child remains on the waiting list, you will be notified when a spot becomes available.  A new application must be submitted each year to be put on the waitlist. 

Open Enrollment for the 2021-2022 school year will be from Monday, February 22 through Friday, March 19.  Applications will be available from the front office from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm, with final applications due on Friday, March 19 at 3:00 pm. Original applications must be returned to the PALS front office in person or via mail.
