Educational opportunities for all ages

Charleston offers a rich landscape of first-rate educational opportunities: a variety of K–12 schools serve students in both public and independent environments; higher education options abound, with several prestigious undergraduate colleges and universities in the area; and certification and continuing education programs enable students of all ages to continue on their educational journeys.

For the younger members of the community, the Charleston County School District offers traditional neighborhood schools as well as county-wide charter and magnet programs such as Montessori, International Baccalaureate, single gender, military-infused, math and science, arts, and global studies. For more information, visit the CCSD Choice page.

For families considering their independent school options, below is a partial list of area schools; find a complete list of South Carolina independent schools here.

Adding to the tangible energy and intellectual vigor of the city, thousands of students choose Charleston every year, as undergraduates at one of the local colleges, scholars in graduate programs, designers and chefs in training, students learning a technical trade, or adults enjoying continuing education.
