CCSD School Choice

Dedicated to excellence in education

  • Welcome to CCSD School Choice

    Each school-aged child in Charleston County is assigned to a neighborhood school based on grade level and home address. Additionally, CCSD offers specialized programs, magnet schools, and charter schools, to which students can apply to attend by choice.

    In support of CCSD Policy IHBHB, the School Choice Office provides responsive and proactive customer service to families interested in CCSD school choice options by:

    • Ensuring that families are aware of all the choice school and program options beyond their zoned schools and what each has to offer

    • Assisting families with the school choice application process; maintaining a dedicated phone line and email account to respond to questions, and offering on-site and virtual support events

    • Working closely with the choice schools and other departments to coordinate criteria-school testing and other activities and events for interested applicants
