Charleston Collegiate School is an independent day school which strives to recognize, nurture, and challenge each of its students. Organized as a Lower School (PS-4), Middle School (5-8), and Upper School (9-12), CCS is the only co-educational, non-sectarian, preschool through 12th grade, independent school in the metropolitan area; this distinction has allowed the school to be far more diverse, with a minority enrollment of almost 25%. We are a challenging yet supportive learning community that prepares students for a lifelong commitment to intellectual achievement, integrity, service, and leadership. A CCS education is focused on project based learning, financial literacy, artistic expression, and leadership through outdoor education.
Charleston Collegiate School offers a thirty-acre campus of vast playing fields and wooded trails, and is located only twenty minutes from Charleston’s historic district on one side and Kiawah Island on the other. 81% of our faculty have Masters Degrees.
