James Island Christian School is located on beautiful James Island in Charleston, South Carolina.  We offer a quality, Christian education for families with students ranging from K-4 - 12th grade.
On top of a great learning environment, JICS offers multiple opportunities for extra-curricular activities and sports for all Elementary, Middle and High School students. James Island Christian School provides an opportunity for academic excellence within a Christ-centered environment that compliments the teaching of the home and the church.  We believe that the ultimate responsibility for the education of a child rests with the parent.  Therefore, there must be a partnership between parent and school, each supporting and reinforcing the other.  At James Island Christian School, we provide for the education of the whole child: spiritually, mentally, socially, and physically. The truth, as revealed in God’s Word, is the foundation for all subject matter.
