Fielding Property Acquisition
Charleston Day School acquired the Fielding Home for Funerals property in early October, 2023. The new property significantly increases the footprint of the campus and solidifies the “Forever Home” of CDS in downtown Charleston.
The process to acquire the Fielding property occurred in 2023, but the permanent location for the campus has been an open question for many years. CDS has been an integral part of Charleston for over 85 years and the historic city is an invaluable extension of its campus. The trade-off for the central location, however, has been limited space. With the Fielding campus expansion that issue is now resolved. It provides the space the school needs to sustain CDS in its current location for the next 85 years and beyond.
