Welcome to Charleston Collegiate School.  Nestled under grand, moss-laden live oaks, Charleston Collegiate School offers a fifty-acre campus of vast playing fields and wooded trails. This unique environment allows students to embrace nature while growing into conscious leaders that are challenged by rigorous project-based learning. 

Located on Johns Island, just 10 miles from historic Charleston our school is minutes away from Kiawah, Seabrook, and Wadmalaw Islands. The Charleston Collegiate environment values creativity, compassion for others, a passion for learning, and vibrant diversity.

Charleston Collegiate is a co-educational, nonsectarian, independent school that is fully accredited with Southern Association of Independent Schools .  Our students begin in lower school as early as pre-school and transition into middle school at 6th grade and then into our upper school at 9th grade.  After graduation our students value the college preparatory education that they received at Charleston Collegiate.

I have been attending Charleston Collegiate School, and I love every day here. Each morning, I’m happy to go to school (really!), and there is always something new to learn. We have great teacher-student relationships, and the school truly accepts you for who you are. Our school is project based, and it allows us to apply what we are learning in everyday situations that will definitely help us in our future careers. CCS 9th Grader
