Charleston Catholic School has been an amazing school for my children academically and spiritually. I can't say enough about the in depth academics CCS offers, while integrating creative thinking through Art in Science, Math, English and of course their Music and Drama programs. The teachers and leadership have exceeded my expectations and excited to be a part of this extraordinary growing school program.

Charleston is an amazing town, and incredible for families. Beaches, parks, culture, I find there is no town in the country that can match it, especially when you throw the beaches and water access in. The downtown neighbourhoods are very affordable, especially compared to Beacon Hill, Georgetown, Brooklyn etc... Charleston Catholic makes living in town with kids possible!!! We moved here from the. Northeast with 4 children and were desperate to live downtown near the action. Thanks to Charleston Catholic we can. The class sizes are small, the teachers are full of heart and care. The academic regimen is robust, indeed. As Charleston's popularity swells up King Street this school neighbourhood will soon be engulfed by gentrification and I predict enrolment will swell. I'm glad. I got in now.

Don't judge a book by its cover - how true it is for this school. Although the location has scared off some prospective families, this school is a gem and it is safe. It is also very convenient to major streets and highways. The building campaign is in full swing with over $1.5M pledged, a new wing will soon be built. The principal is fantastic. He attracts a good mix of teachers - both young and old. Small class size and the kids all know each other. Excellent Academic, Arts and Music. Majority of kids go on to Bishop England, Academic Magnet, and School of the Arts for High School. It achieves true diversity of ethnic backgrounds, economic situation, and even a fair number of Non-Catholics. Once the new wing is built, I believe there will be waitlists for classes. The challenge is to keep up the quality of the staff as teachers depart for advanced degrees or other opportunities.

After being denied access to our county school which became a magnet (2 blocks from our home) we looked at Charleston Catholic - We are thrilled at the education that our son is receiving - the teachers are absolutely wonderfull and We Love It!! My son is in a class with 11 kids and 2 teachers ! He is K4 but when I pick him up at school it just amazes me when the older kids will stop and say hello to my son and I by name - the entire school has just such a great sense of family and belonging.

I have one child at Charleston Catholic and one who graduated from there and is now in college. This is the 'little school that can' -- and it does! While it stresses academic achievement and has many high-performing students, it does not create an environment in which a child feels like he or she is in a pressure-cooker. The school does a great job of helping each child to achieve his or her best potential. The administration and faculty are wonderful and caring. The families also make it special and we are grateful for the racial diversity which is unfortunately rare in many private schools in the area. It is truly a Catholic School, but there are many non-Catholic children who attend. If this sounds appealing to you, you owe it to yourself and your child/children to visit the school!

I have two children at Charleston Catholic School . Previously we were in the public school system and felt that if your child was not causing any problems then they were forgotten. Both my children are on the honor roll and have developed incredible self worth and independence at this school. The location and the facilities throw some parents off by the 'heart' of this school is incredible. My husband and I call it the hidden gem of Charleston's schools.

During this school year, I have had to deal with many inconsistencies, that I should not have had to. The lack of understanding that we have received continues to grow. The school seems to be unable to provide the proper discipline program. The current program is inconsistent, and should be the same for every student. I have been disappointed in the location of the school. I am very disappointed in this school, especially since it is so expensive. I sent my children here to protect them, not expose them to the very thing I sent them there for.

My son has received much needed one-on-one attention here from his teachers. The children here treat each other with respect and kindness something we were missing at former school. The band program is terrific. 41% of the middle school play in the band! Christ-centered.

CCS is a wonderful school. You will recieve the best education possible. I've graduated from CCS, and have a higher academic standing than the other students at my school. If it was not for CCS I would not be who I am today. CCS teaches you morals and provides a good education. It is a very disciplined school. My family was a part of the school for 12 years. CCS provides a good foundation for high school and the future. The school has the best teachers, and they work for very little money. It is one of the very few private schools that has somewhat diversity. CCS is a great school.

CCS over the recent years has declined in providing consistent and positive educational and disciplinary feedback. It was a wonderful school but now lacks in offering the ability to properly handle children in their pre-teen and teen years. There is no caring or understanding for the emotional needs of our wonderful children. It seems to only care about academic standing to entice others to enroll their children.
