Tuition only covers 70% of the true cost of a CCS Education.  CCS deliberately sets tuition below full cost in order to keep our school more affordable to a wider range of students, and to provide community members with opportunities to support the school with tax-deductible, philanthropic commitments.

CCS is a wonderful community and an incredible place for your child to learn! The teachers and staff are the best in Charleston!  Parent of a Lower School Student
