Summerville Catholic School was established in 1988 on a 12 acre campus located in Summerville, SC and serves grades K3-8th. It is a regional Catholic school in the Diocese of Charleston. We are dedicated to following the teachings of Jesus Christ, strengthening our students in spirit as well as mind. We invite all children, including those with special needs, to our campus where they can achieve their full potential. Our teachers and staff are dedicated to providing individualized learning in a small community environment. We are a school where parent participation is not only welcomed, but encouraged.

Summerville Catholic School is a Catholic educational community dedicated to the mission entrusted by Jesus Christ to the Church. Our community provides an environment that helps to instill sound ideals, morals, and values as guided by the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We strive to continue our strong tradition of excellence by guiding our students to become involved members of their church and society. With God's grace, our students will continue to enlighten their faith through personal prayer.         

 

To promote a fuller living out of Catholic social teaching SCS students and families participate in various outreach projects during the year. These projects help us to remember our baptismal call to help the poor and those in need. We are called to serve and to be the light of Christ to others. We strive to awaken in our students a sense of responsibility to reach out and respond to others' needs.

 

Parents who enroll their children at Summerville Catholic School are committed to the mission, vision, values, policies, and procedures of the school. The Parent and School Association (PSA) is a parent-driven organization, which serves to foster unity and support for families within the school. This organization sponsors fund-raising activities for the benefit of the school, coordinates volunteer services, and promotes the school to the general public.

 

Firmly grounded in the Catholic faith, at SCS we inspire academic inquisitiveness and spiritual growth. Our facutly nurtures the unique talents and strengths of each student. Whether it is in the classroom, on the basketball court or singing at Mass in the school choir, we provide opportunities to develop the whole child. From preschool through eighth grade we strengthen our students in spirit, mind and body.

 

At Summerville Catholic School learning leaps from the pages of a book to the heart and soul of our students. Our faculty continues to look for new, innovative ways to enhance education opportunities while meeting the needs of each and every student. Incorportating technology, critical thinking skills, and hands on activities enables our students to take learning to a whole new level.
