Schools Zoned for Downtown Charleston Peninsula Residents

You know you’re ready to move.

You’ve found a couple of homes grabbing your attention. Downtown Charleston is looking like the winner. But there’s the final checklist, and you hit this question …

Is the location good?

Any home can have all the features in the world, but if the location isn’t great, then your interest suddenly fades. One of the top concerns most homebuyers have about location is: Are there good schools located nearby?

Buying a house isn’t all about the property. Sometimes it’s about the amenities you get by living in the area. So, we’re going to examine the schools that serve Downtown Charleston residents. Let’s begin.

Private Schools Around Downtown Charleston

Above are the public schools serving Downtown Charleston residents, but the peninsula is also home to a number of private schools -- some of the best in the state.

  1. Ashley Hall
    This is an all-girls school, located along Rutledge Avenue, and serving grades K-12. The school prides itself on the community it has built -- which challenges, celebrates, and supports young women at every stage of their education.

  2. The Charleston Catholic School
    Great for those looking for an education within the sacred tradition and teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. This Prek-8 school offers  smaller classes with an 11:1 student/teacher ratio. The Charleston Catholic School features a close-knit community of one class per grade level and are located off King Street.

  3. Mason Preparatory School
    This school is a great choice for those seeking a more one-on-one education, as their student-to-teacher ratio sits at 13:1 (which is impressive). They provide state of the art technology education, starting in elementary school. They serves grades K-8 and are located on Halsey Boulevard.

  4. Porter-Guad School
    What was once a private, boys military school has now turned into a college preparatory school with ties to the Episcopal Church. They serve grades PreK-12, and are located at 300 Albemarle Road (a small island right off the Charleston peninsula). This school is good choice for those looking for a strong education with an emphasis on Christian beliefs.
