SUMMERTON -- A charter school is closing just a year after it opened.
The S.C. Public Charter School District confirmed Friday that that Young Entrepreneurial Vocational Academy, which opened for about 40 students in seventh and eighth grades in August 2008, is in the process of shutting down.
Veronica Primus-Thomas, the school's executive director, said when the school opened that organizers planned eventually to have 120 students in grades seven through 12.
A receptionist at the school at 10 S. Dukes St. referred questions to the school leaders, who were not immediately available for comment.
