JOY IN LEARNING

Charleston Collegiate is a great place to grow!

Nestled under grand, moss-laden live oaks, Charleston Collegiate School offers over thirty-acres of vast playing fields and wooded trails that inspire students to become passionate, lifelong learners.  Through a rigorous educational philosophy students are empowered with knowledge, creativity, curiosity, and confidence so that they can mindfully embrace the opportunities of tomorrow.

 

WHAT'S HAPPENING NOW

Outdoor Education

We are advocates and good stewards of our planet! Advocacy is a core value at CCS that is taught throughout every grade level.  Our students are taught to advocate for what is right and to take pride in their campus- including the acres and acres of our outdoor classroom!

Leadership

Learning how to be a good steward of our environment is an important lesson for all of our students. Our high schoolers learned about taking care of nature and learned more about our marshes, gardens, and preserves.

 

Financial Literacy & Entrepreneurship

The 6th grade was tasked with an essential question- what should the school do with the unused older field space? Each group dove heavily into researching how to fund the project, the environment, the school’s needs, and the schematics of the space. They then conducted market research by interviewing staff, faculty, and students.

Project Based Learning

Talented fifth-graders researched, scripted, created costumes and set designs about the paleolithic, mesolithic, and neolithic eras.  They then utilized our Outdoor Education Center to present their narratives on their era.

Our children have been at Charleston Collegiate for six years and we are so amazed at how much we grow as a family through our relationship with everyone at CCS. The school's approach to learning allows our children to look forward to school every day. They are eager to participate and make a difference in whatever is presented in class. Charleston Collegiate is a school that thrives on relationships, incorporating family into the bonds that are created. Our children have gained confidence...We cannot say enough about this school, if you are looking for a home, please check them out.
