Charleston Collegiate School is an independent day school that strives to recognize, nurture, and challenge each of its students. Organized as a Lower School (PK-4), Middle School (5-8), and Upper School (9-12), CCS prides itself on being an independent, co-educational, non-sectarian, prekindergarten through 12th grade, located just outside of Charleston’s metropolitan area. Charleston Collegiate School offers a thirty-acre campus of vast playing fields and wooded trails and is located only twenty minutes from Charleston’s historic district on one side and Kiawah Island on the other.
CCS has a challenging, yet supportive, learning community that coaches students to become lifelong learners. A CCS education uses the pillars of project-based learning, financial literacy & entrepreneurship, artistic expression, and leadership through outdoor education to teach a high-quality education to a diverse student body.
