The definitive voice of independent school education in South Carolina

why independent Schools?

Smaller is Better

On average, independent schools have smaller enrollments, smaller average class sizes, and lower student/teacher ratios than public schools.

College Preparation

Independent school students are more likely than public school students to complete a bachelor’s or advanced degree.

Making a Choice

Independent schools allow families to decide what they want and then find a school that has a mission, philosophy, values, and approach to teaching that meets those needs.
