About Us

The SC Governor’s School for Agriculture at John de la Howe is a place where students don’t just learn about the world in a classroom — they get out and experience it, getting their hands in the dirt as their minds are focused on the future. There is nothing like it in South Carolina, or anywhere else in the nation.

It is an amazing and unique place — a brand-new establishment created within the state’s oldest public school. Founded in 1797, it was declared a Governor’s School in 2020, taking its place alongside the other two Governor’s Schools in the state. From day one you’ll be welcomed into this strong, vibrant community.
