The future of Laurens County students is at the top of the priority list for the many educational establishments located in and serving the County.  With two public school districts, private schools, one technical college with an Advanced Manufacturing Center, one four-year college (Presbyterian College) and a pharmacy school, a branch university, and numerous other colleges and universities in one-hour commute, our residents have every opportunity at their fingertips.

The privately-funded Laurens County Future Scholarship (LCFS) program was established in the Fall of 2015, to provide recent high school graduates with a tuition-free path to complete two years of technical training, or the first half of a bachelor's degree.  Modeled on successful programs from around the United States, the Laurens County Future Scholarship is a last-pay scholarship, covering only the remainder of tuition and required fees after all State and Federal financial aid is applied.  This program was created to insure all Laurens County residents have the opportunity for the bright future they deserve, as the County continues to strengthen the available workforce.
