Students applying to PK-1st grade will spend a portion of the school morning in a classroom with students of the same age. Those applying to 2nd-12th grade will spend a full day on campus, shadowing a current Hammond student. These visits allow Hammond faculty the opportunity to assess each applicant’s cognitive, physical and social development while the applicant has the opportunity to experience a typical day at Hammond. Please contact the admission office at (803) 695-4018 to arrange a visit.
Once the application process is complete, the admission committee carefully considers each candidate to determine his/her potential for success at Hammond. Enrollment decisions are communicated via phone, with contracts mailed to those invited to enroll.
