After serching and making comparisons to other schools in the South Carolina low country area (Jasper, Beaufort Counties), there is no doubt that Thomas Heyward is a superior academic and extracurricular environment. The college acceptance/attendance rate is in the high 90's. The school environemnt gives parents confidence that thier children are in good hands, all day long. I only wish I had the opporunity send our son there sooner.

Marketing the small private school can be done affordably and effectively. We suggest five easy steps to make that happen.
