After careful consideration, our Charter Committee decided to withdraw the application for the Charter School of Musically Inspired Minds that we submitted on April 30, 2013,which, upon approval from the state, would have allowed us to open the school in August of 2014. We do plan to resubmit an updated application for MIM in May 2014, for the school to open August of 2015.
The Charter Committee had intended for the school to have a close, and possibly formal, partnership with the Charleston Symphony Orchestra. The committee felt that more time was needed to foster that relationship and allow for input on the school's proposed music curriculum from the CSO's new Executive Director when he or she is hired.
Located on the Charleston Peninsula, The Charter School of Musically Inspired Minds will prepare students in grades 6-12 for the pursuit of creative work in any field, using music as a medium to inspire and foster creativity, coupled with a strong academic program.
