Principal's Message

Dear SRAA Community,
It is with great pride and excitement that I write this message to you as the Principal of Saluda River Academy for the Arts. I am honored to have the opportunity to serve alongside our staff, parents, and the SRAA community as we continue to cultivate our students into creative and successful lifelong learners.  
Saluda River is a family-friendly neighborhood school that has been part of the West Columbia community since 1955. We are the only Lexington Two elementary school that affords our students and school community the opportunity to immerse in dance, music, theater, and the visual arts in conjunction with our strong academic program.  The integration of the arts truly sets us apart. We welcome you to join us at Saluda River to see the wonderful programs we have in place for our students. Beginning with the 2023-2024 school year, we will welcome 4K students, too.
I encourage you to become active members of the PTO and the school community and follow our school on our social media platforms. I have an open-door policy and welcome your input and ideas. My ultimate goal is to make SRAA a school where students feel safe, have a strong sense of belonging, and are empowered to achieve at high levels. It is going to be an amazing year!
Brandon Brantly, Principal
