Welcome to the School District of Oconee County
This information is provided to help students from NEXT Eagle Ridge School who plan to attend an SDOC school beginning with the 2022-2023 school year. Questions can be directed to the counselor listed within the slideshow for the school the student will attend.
Bus transportation is provided for SDOC students who attend the school they are zoned for. If a student attends another school through school choice, it is the responsibility of the parent or guardian to provide transportation.
High School Resources
The School District of Oconee County has created a Resource Guide to help students and families navigate high school academics. This resource includes information on what courses our schools offer.
The School District of Oconee County offers students the ability to attend a school other than the one they are zoned for. There are currently no restrictions on specific schools and/or grade levels for 2022-2023. Once enrollment numbers are finalized, it is possible that some schools and/or grade levels may not accept school choice students.
SDOC School Board Administrative Policy JFB governs the school choice process. Policy JFB includes the following parameters:
Only students that reside in Oconee County are eligible for school choice.
Transportation to a "choice school" is the responsibility of the parent/guardian (no bus service)
Principals will consider behavior, attendance, and grades before approving applications.
A lottery will be used to fill spaces if more applications are received than available space.
Note: Eligibility for athletics at the middle and high school levels is governed by the South Carolina High School League. Attending a choice school may affect a student’s eligibility to participate in sports.
The School Zone Locator tool is available for families to determine what school their child is zoned to attend.
