The essence of The Charleston Catholic School is reflected in five core values: sharing faith, loving family, celebrating diversity, experiencing art and achieving academic excellence. Our school’s mascot is the Saints, and these core values shape the educational experience for our “Saints”.
The measure of a great school is best expressed in the words of its students and their families.
“Immediately upon walking into the school the warm, family environment is evident. Add to that our daughters academic successes since they started at CCS and we know that they are in the right school!” -Mary Catherine Gill
The sense of caring and community we felt during our tour of Charleston Catholic was only exceeded by the commitment and dedication demonstrated by the faculty to our children once they enrolled. Our son and daughter are both thriving at Charleston Catholic, and each had a teacher connect with them like never before; the result being a renewed interest from our daughter to pursue her artistic talent, and a fascination with science and NASA exhibited by our son that is fun to watch develop. Thank you Charleston Catholic for lighting a spark for learning in our children that has carried over to all of their classes and allowed them to flourish. -Joe and Kelly Henry
“My wife and I thought we had made difficult decisions in our lives, but nothing compared to selecting the right school in which to enroll our only child. We wanted a small and nurturing environment where our son would be challenged academically, while at the same time develop strong moral values. Our son started at CCS in K-4 and is now a rising eighth grader. He has excelled academically and has qualified for the Duke TIPS program. More importantly, he loves going to school! CCS has been the perfect fit for our family!” -Ronnie and Robin Richter
“Our experience has been that CCS fosters the development of the entire person: spiritually, academically, socially, and artistically.” -Andrew Lamar
“Immediately upon walking into the school the warm, family environment is evident. Add to that our daughter’s academic successes since they started at CCS and we know that they are in the right school!” -Mary Catherine Gill
