Welcome to the Spartanburg Academic Movement


Our goal is to create a cultural shift in Spartanburg County by increasing the perceived value of education.  As economies and industries change, it is necessary that Spartanburg County recognize the importance of education in not only obtaining a job but also in achieving a better quality of life.
