"As I crossed the country looking for inspiring examples of education at its best, I was dazzled by what I found at Charleston Collegiate School, and highlighted their great work in my book What School Could Be.  This is a school preparing its children for life, not for pointless standardized tests.  Engaged kids at CCS learn deeply as they develop essential competencies, personal agency, and a guiding sense of purpose.  We all have a lot to learn from this remarkable school, which is leading the way for schools across America."
