Lifetime Relationships

When students join Charleston Day School, they become part of a community for a lifetime. Students regularly return as alumni to visit with teachers throughout high school and college. Once they become parents, they bring their own children. Several current students are the third generation in their family to attend.

Hopie and Telfair (Tee) Parker have four grandchildren at Charleston Day, and three of them are new first graders. Hopie served as the school’s receptionist for 20 years, and Tee, an alumnus, serves on the Board of Trustees. The Parkers are also the parents of three CDS graduates.

When can I visit?

We love to see Charleston Day alumni back on campus. Come find your 8th grade class portrait or see your brick on Alumni Walk.

Give us a call, and we can coordinate a tour. We are continually updating campus, so there is much to see. In 2017, we created a new kindergarten classroom and playground, and new spaces on campus were renovated for the music and arts programs.

Contact Mary Baarcke (CDS ’94) at 843.266.9798 or email Mary.Baarcke@charlestonday.org

Do I have a brick on Alumni Walk?

On Alumni Walk, graduates’ names are engraved in the bricks leading to the gymnasium, grouped by graduating year.

All graduates from 2003 to present are automatically included.

Alumni Faculty

They couldn’t stay away . . . we are so fortunate to have several alumni serving on our faculty. Students love to hear their stories from days as students, and their deep knowledge of our community helps to guide us as we move forward.

In Their Words

In this crazy busy world where people are less and less connected, it is so comforting to know that a place like 15 Archdale Street still exists . . . where each child is known for his or her own unique personality, recognized, and loved.
