With our emphasis on a comprehensive college preparatory curriculum, the Upper School teachers of Lowcountry Prep encourage intellectual rigor and critical thinking. Our small classes allow us to appreciate our students as individuals and celebrate their growth in and out of the classroom. We are a community of learners dedicated to expanding our knowledge and improving our instruction and teamwork. We challenge our students to become informed, bold, resourceful, and resilient students. We aim to provide the essentials to prepare them for the demands of college and the skills to be informed and engaged citizens of the world.
The Upper School curriculum is based on a course of study believed to give our students the tools and know-how to excel in college. In addition to the foundational courses in the sciences and humanities, the Upper School offers elective courses designed to broaden and deepen our students’ intellects.
The IB Programme is considered the worldwide, premier college-preparatory curriculum that enables students to become critical thinkers and lifelong learners. Students are urged to be internationally-minded and to think beyond their immediate environment.
A commitment to community service and an awareness of global events are promoted through the IB Programme, various clubs, field trips, and activities. Students are encouraged to take leadership roles, start new clubs, try new sports, and explore interests outside of the traditional classroom setting.
A student graduating with a degree from Lowcountry Preparatory School has the skills to succeed in college and beyond—to be a critical thinker, a contributing member of the world with a global view of society.
