The research is clear. School districts across the country offering choices have greater parent involvement, more engaged learners, and a higher quality of education. In Charleston County, each school-aged child is assigned to a neighborhood school based on grade level and home address. In addition, CCSD also offers other dynamic choices, including specialized programs, magnets, and charter schools.

Learn more about the types of choice options within CCSD by exploring the links below, where you will find information about each school, including a link to the choice application and individual school website.
