Martha Messick, Ed.S.

Welcome to Aiken Scholars Academy!

I am so proud to be leading the newest school in Aiken County! This is such an amazing opportunity for the residents of our community. Aiken Scholars Academy will be the most academically accelerated program in the district. I am honored to hold this position as principal and take my work very seriously.  I am a mother of two beautiful boys and wife of a wonderful husband. I have lived in Aiken my entire life and am a graduate of Aiken County Public Schools and University of South Carolina Aiken. I am very excited to work with the students, parents, faculty and the entire Aiken community. My goal is to ensure that every student finds success at Aiken Scholars Academy and is prepared for their future endeavors.
