To inquire, please email Admission Director Ashley Mulkey at

Charleston Collegiate School admits students of any race, color, sex, disability, nationality, or ethnic origin to all the rights, privileges, programs, and activities generally accorded or made available to students in the school. 

We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, sex, disability, nationality, or ethnic origin in the administration of our educational policies, admission policies, scholarship programs, athletic, and other school-administered programs. 

Admission decisions are based on the academic and personal strengths of each candidate. Transcripts and standardized test scores give us an indication of the applicant's academic abilities. 

Recommendations from teachers tell us more about the kind of person and student the applicant is, about his or her motivation, interests, and abilities to interact with others. 

The essay is a chance for the applicant to tell the admission committee the things he or she wishes them to know. It will not only give us an indication of writing ability, it will give us a sense of the applicant's interests, goals, and dreams.


  • Schedule a tour or attend an Open House. Open Houses for prospective students are held periodically; however, prospective families are welcome to schedule a visit any time.
  • Apply!
  • Submit your transcripts and school records. Upon receipt of the application, student transcripts and school records will be requested from the present school. 
  • Submit your recommendations. For grades 5-12, please submit current math and English recommendations as well as an extracurricular recommendation. For grades Preschool-4, a general recommendation is needed. All recommendation forms are available through the TADS by clicking the ‘documents’ link. These can either be printed out and submitted to the Admission Office by mail, or scanned and e-mailed to Ashley Mulkey.
  • Schedule an admission testing date. After an application is received, a date for testing will be arranged, at which time we will schedule placement testing and interviews.
  • Schedule a student visit. Prospective students spend a day at Charleston Collegiate School where they are assigned a student ambassador and participate in the day’s activities.
