Director - Anderson County Alternative School

Mr. Dillingham

August 12, 2015

Welcome to Anderson County Alternative School.  Established in 1996, we will observe our 20th anniversary this school year. 

Over the past many years, our school has established itself as a place where students who have been expelled or removed from an Anderson County school district or ordered to attend by a Family Court judge can get back on track in a safe and structured environment.

In this structured environment, students will be expected to adhere to established grooming standards including wearing a uniform, participate in academic classes geared to individual student abilities and needs, follow a structured movement pattern and experience life in a military-styled boot camp.  These programs are detailed on this site.

We welcome the opportunity to work with you and to assist you in meeting the challenges of daily life.  Please join our team of dedicated professionals and establish your personal “great expectations” for academic, social, emotional and behavioral performance both at school and away from campus.  Working together, we can begin to make better choices which will be reflected in personal and academic growth.

This site is designed to serve as a guide to the opportunities, expectations, and regulations at ACAS.  Please remember, however, that this is not an all-inclusive listing of rules, regulations, and opportunities.  If you have questions or wish to talk to any staff member, please contact us at 864-260-4888.  We look forward to working with you throughout this school year.
