SC Science Academy executive director Nathan Yon says his new school opening this fall focuses on a combination of traditional and online learning. As education leaders and state legislators are considering approaches to fixing South Carolina’s education system, several people are already hard at work shaping the future of education. One of those people, Nathan Yon, says his new school opening this fall focuses on a combination of traditional and online learning. “You’re taking the best practices of…a virtual school and the best practices of a traditional school and combining them together,” said Yon, executive director of the South Carolina Science Academy, a charter school, adding the school was developed by a group of educators who wanted to create a 21st century model for education that keeps up with constant changes in technology.
