School Official Point of View

Posted April 29, 2014

Charleston Progressive Academy is excited about being a part of the Stephen Covey Leader In Me(LIM) Schools. We are also a Personalize Mastery school and the two initiatives integrate to be a guiding focus socially, academically, and emotionally for students and staff. 7 Habits of Effective People has changed our school's culture. We have just completed our first year of implementing the Covey and Personalize Mastery Principles. We look forward to our second year of implementing both initiatives and observing how far our students will go!

I am proud to be an educational family member of Charleston Progressive Academy, and would highly recommend it to any family with high educational expectations for their children. As a fitness and leadership school we strive to set a foundation of high academic standards, and then we put our students in their rightful places as leaders by allowing them to help take responsibility for their education. Technology is a vital part of our environment, but with smaller class sizes, and differentiated instruction we "begin with the end in mind" as we educate our students beyond the 21st century.

I'm so appreciative of the fact that Charleston Progressive Academy is implementing the Leader in Me program! My four year old comes home proclaiming that she must be proactive and clean up her toys! Imagine that! Additionally, she tells my husband how he must put first things first before he watches sports on T.V. She is definitely receiving a strong foundation we feel in terms of learning these very important life skills in addition to her academics! Hats off to CPA!

My 3 daughters have attended CPA since kindergarten. The teachers and staff members all care about their well being as well as their success in school. One of my daughters had difficulty with reading and math. Immediately a teacher was assigned to assist her in comprehension. Also, I love the Saturday School they have to prepare for MAC & PASS testing.

As a parent with 2 children at the school, I can honestly say that I am pleased with the experiences given to not only my children, but myself. The teachers are wonderful and give the children education within a loving and nurturing environment. The staff here are very down to earth and have the children's best interests at heart. It takes a village to raise a child and Charleston Progressive Academy is that village!

Amazing. Beautiful things are happening here and I am so ecstatic to be apart of it. I'm learning new things every day in an effort to make my students better leaders and learners. I couldn't be more content.

As a parent of 2 children that attend this school. I am pleased with the overall experience, we had 1 incident that I believe that my son was wrongfully accused of and I am in the process of getting that situation reversed. Otherwise, the teachers do a wonderful job and they care for the students and their well-being. I have good, intellectual children and along with the school and the teachings at home the will become productive and successful citizens.

As a parent, I'm very plesed with this school. My daughter has attended this school since the 1st grade, and as a third grader, she's reading on a seventh grade level, her pact scores are excellent, she's in the SAIL program, on a sixth grade math level, editor of a magazine in the school's Micro Society Program, and last (certainly not least), the Principal and staff are wonderful. As for the parent that wasn't happy with the school, it takes a village to raise a child, and more than just the teacher to teach.

Posted May 20, 2004

I had the unfortunate experience of placing my child in this school. I heard so many 'wonderful' things about the school and the cirriculum it had to offer. During my child's enrollment, I was very disappointed with the cirriculum, the principal's honesty and concern for the children, as well as the leadership of some of the teachers. I feel as though my child has wasted a year of education and I am eagarly searching for another school that will be beneficial to my child. Very Disappointing!

About the tests


In 2012-2013 South Carolina used the Palmetto Assessment of State Standards (PASS) to test students in grades 3 through 8 in Writing, English/Language Arts, Math, Social Studies and Science. The PASS is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of South Carolina. The goal is for all students to score at or above the state standard.
