SC Curriculum Standards

The Profile of the SC Graduate, is a vision of what all students who graduate from South Carolina schools should exemplify. This framework has been adopted by many state agencies and school districts.  The South Carolina Department of Education provides State Curriculum Standards to support schools as they work to help students achieve this vision.

STANDARDS  are the instructional foundation for learning in our classrooms

SUPPORT DOCUMENTS & RESOURCES  provide a deeper explanation of the standards and are used by teachers to guide instruction.

The SC Curriculum standards can be difficult to understand.  To help families have a better understanding of what their students are learning, the South Carolina Education Oversight Committee has developed family-friendly guides to the standards.  If after reading through these guides, you still have questions about a standard or something your student is learning, please contact your child's teacher for more information.
