Rus in urbe Upstate Scholé Academy

Please note:  RUS Academy is full for 2020-2021.  We are not accepting any new applications at this time.

RUS Academy exists to serve homeschooling families in the Upstate of South Carolina. Our name includes the Latin phrase “rus in urbe,” which means “garden in a city.”


We aim to foster an environment of joyful discovery that inspires wonder at the incredible world around us.

RUS Academy promotes a restful, classical approach to homeschooling, while also stretching students to academic excellence.

From the moment you walk in our doors, you will recognize that we are a family.  We love the privilege of educating our children, and we’re thrilled with the blessing of walking this path together.



RUS Academy admits students of any race, color, national and ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students at the school. It does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national and ethnic origin in administration of its educational policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, and athletic and other school- administered programs.
