Its academic work is rigorous and college preparatory and follows the guidelines established by the Catholic Diocese of Charleston and the South Carolina Department of Education. Its religious emphasis is on its students’ Christian faith development, so that they may live Christ’s command to love one another and become responsible members of both church and society.
While just completing its fifth year in operation, the school boasts 15 varsity sports and has received state recognition in multiple sports. Academic offerings are flourishing with more than 65 courses at every ability level, including Advanced Placement, Dual Enrollment, and Honors. The curriculum is supplemented with Remote Learning opportunities, college-level courses, online programs, and STREAM preparation for its teachers. Campus life is thriving with programs in the arts, music, and extracurricular opportunities that nurture the entire individual socially, emotionally, and spiritually.
