What We Do

Founded in 1919 by the Daughters of the American Revolution with 110 acres of land generously donated by community members, Tamassee DAR School began as a boarding school to serve girls residing in the Appalachian Mountain areas in what was then called the “dark corner”.   Education along with God, Home and Country would be the tools used to “brighten their darkened horizon” for a better future.

With a century of educational success to its credit, Tamassee DAR School meets the needs of students and families in the community.

Located in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains of Tamassee, South Carolina, the 110 acre campus provides a serene backdrop for children enrolled in our programs to supplement their educational progress.

Our on campus Early Childhood Learning Center strives to instill a love of lifelong learning in the infants and toddlers they serve.  Our after school program provides community elementary and middle school students with tutors, trauma-informed care, and enrichment activities, all while striving to instill good citizenship values.

As we enter our second century of service, Tamassee DAR School is happy to continue to be the place of the sunlight of God in children’s lives for another hundred years.

Afterschool Program

At Tamassee DAR School we believe in the education of the whole child: physically, emotionally, academically and spiritually.  Each child in our care has the opportunity to explore their potential and to receive the tools and resources they need to help them achieve and become successful not only in academics, but in life.    We believe education helps children build brighter futures.
