Students who are enrolled at Swofford come to the campus for half of the day, while the other half is spent at their high school completing required classes. About 110 Landrum High School students participate in courses each semester at Swofford.

Swofford offers 15 programs: automotive collision repair, automotive mechanical technology, building construction, commercial graphics, computer systems technology, cosmetology, culinary arts, electricity, engineering drafting and design, health science technology, horticulture sciences, machine tool technology, multimedia production, protective services and welding.

Also through Swofford, high school students are able to enroll in classes and earn college credit through Spartanburg Community College and become certified for cosmetology, CNA and automotive mechanics.

So far, they offer two courses where students are able to receive college credit through dual enrollment at SCC: culinary arts and health science technology.

“Students can get 11 units of credit towards college for those classes,” said Simpkins.

Most classes are available to 10th graders, however some classes, such as the nursing and cosmetology classes, are only available to high school juniors and seniors because they must be seniors to become licensed.

Refreshments will be served at the Aug. 29 reception, courtesy of the Swofford Culinary Arts program, and larger pieces will be displayed outside in the courtyard. The exhibit will run until Sept. 29.
