Charleston Collegiate School provides an environment grounded in mutual respect to allow our school community to gain an appreciation and awareness of our differences. Our diversity creates an environment that fosters an appreciation of the values, skills and abilities of everyone.
We cherish the diversity which already lies within our community and accept the challenge that lies ahead to implement our philosophy through effective and focused policies within our four academic pillars.
Our concept of diversity is about understanding one another and moving beyond simple tolerance to embracing and celebrating diversity. We value the presence of a variety of strengths and backgrounds including economic status, ethnicity, gender, political beliefs, racial heritage, religious conviction, and sexual orientation. This diversity among the students, faculty, staff, families, and trustees of Charleston Collegiate allows us to meet the multifaceted challenges we face in seeking to provide the best education possible.

Having transitioned from a very competitive school in the northeast, we have been very pleased with the variety of academic opportunities, including an entrepreneurship class. The student body is amazing. I have never seen a group of kids so polite and friendly. It is truly a family environment with great school spirit. The school is truly diverse which provides a real life environment. Parent of Middle and Upper School Students
