Beyond the classroom, with Charleston as our backdrop, our students benefit from an interactive relationship with the city. We are within blocks of City Hall, the Gibbes Museum of Art and other places that challenge our assumptions and open our minds.
Our neighborhood programs extend our community, enhance our academic offerings, and build social awareness. Additionally, our partnerships, environmental initiatives and service projects, locally and internationally, instill a strong ethical foundation and leadership ability in each student.
Here at Charleston Day, we build relationships. Teachers ask questions, they know our interests and our strengths. Coaches listen closely, and teachers attend our games. With small classes, no one gets lost, and we each can find our voice. Small class sizes and exceptional teacher-student ratios enable our educators to help students take intellectual risks, develop confidence in their abilities, and shape their identities as individuals.

Charleston Day School is defined by its mission of developing the qualities of scholarship, integrity, respect and responsibility in our students. In our halls, we choose kindness.
“Make the right choice.”
“Treat others with respect.”
These are the rules we live by.
