  • Hello and welcome to NCCAES the home of the Hootie Owl!

    At North Charleston Creative Arts Elementary we use an arts integrated approach which combines the fine and performing arts with the core instructional program.  We hold the distinction as an Arts in Basic Curriculum site, along with recognition from The Distinguished Arts Program. Additionally, our identification as a Title 1 school affords us access to federal funding to provide targeted instruction and interventions for all students. 

    At NCCAES our students have access to six varied fine arts program, each one embedded into the fabric of our school. 

    It is our targeted focus as an organization to prepare our students to be college and career ready by developing essential skills and behaviors in a safe and supportive environment. Our purposeful approach to providing relevant, engaging and empathetic content through partnership with our families and community allows us to grow our students into the leaders of tomorrow. 

    We are humbled by the privilege to educate your child and look forward to our collective work together!
