The Charleston Catholic School educates a socially diverse student body in a nurturing family environment within the sacred tradition and teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. Teachers challenge the students to discover their own unique gifts through creative inquiry and critical thinking in the core academic subjects and the arts. Our small, loving environment enables students to learn self-discipline through responsible decision-making and to develop a sense of compassion for others. Charleston Catholic School serves the families from the downtown parishes and those in the greater Charleston area who desire Catholic education.
We welcome families of all ethnic and religious backgrounds.
