Clearview-Simpson Academy

The current locations of the Pickens County Head Start program and the Dream Center (111 Hillcrest Drive) were once the site of the Simpson School and Clearview High School, two Jim Crow era schools for African Americans in Easley.  The land adjacent to the Dream Center later became the site of the J.T. Simpson Alternative School.  Plans are underway to develop family life and after-school education centers on these sites by 2023.
