About Us

Tamassee DAR School is a private non-profit children’s home and family service organization offering multi-faceted programs to serve children and families in need. We believe that education is the key to success.  Our programs and services are built on this belief.  We focus on all aspects of learning and growing to help our children gain confidence, build relationships, and realize their potential. If you are in need of Tamassee’s services, please contact us and allow us to help you and your family.

Our Beginning

In 1914, the future was bleak for children living in the isolated Appalachian Mountain areas of South Carolina, North Carolina and Georgia.  Motivated by a desire to improve the quality of life in this region and a commitment by their organization to aid education, the Daughters of the American Revolution voted to establish a school “in a place remote, yet accessible, where the need seems greatest.”
