About Us

Healthy Learners is on a mission to transform the futures of children in poverty in South Carolina. Research has proven that education is the key for children to go further in life, empowering them to obtain higher-wage jobs, make positive life choices, and learn to invest in their future communities to make them stronger, healthier, and vibrant. For many children in poverty, their educational success is at risk because of fixable health care challenges that have not been addressed – known as Health Barriers to Learning. Healthy Learners (HL) was created to address these challenges head on and serve as the catalyst to ensure every child receives the health care they need to thrive in school.

Healthy Learners works collaboratively with communities, schools, healthcare providers and families to remove health barriers to learning through screening, referral and access to medical services. Healthy Learners will serve All Pre-K through 8th grade students to improve academic and health related outcomes.

Our Mission: In the spirit of the Sisters of Charity of St. Augustine, Healthy Learners is devoted to removing children’s health barriers to learning with love and compassion.

Our Vision: That all children are healthy and able to reach their full potential.
