FAQ

How much does it cost?

We believe every family should be able to access a high quality private education if they think it is best for their child.
Tuition is based on a family’s ability to pay.
Scholarships are available and are made possible through the generous support of community members who want every child to have excellent educational opportunities.

For example, our actual-cost tuition is $10,000, yet a family whose yearly income is $20,000 could expect to pay approximately $500 tuition over 10 months for their child.

What grades do you have?

For Fall 2022, we will serve kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th graders.
Charleston Classical School plans to add the next grade each subsequent school year.
