New Bridge Academy -- Formerly the Pair Education Center, New Bridge Academy is the district’s alternative school, at 2325 Platt Springs Road, West Columbia.

Fulmer Middle: For the 2018-19 school year, Fulmer will be located at the former Davis Early Childhood Center for Technology, 2305 Frink St., Cayce, as school renovations continue at its West Columbia home.
