ACADEMICS

Each day, the Lowcountry Preparatory School campus is energized by the excitement of students learning. Our dedicated teachers, outstanding facilities, and supportive school community are all focused on the success of each child’s educational journey. This success results from a balanced academic approach that is traditional in design, yet innovative in its implementation.

Lowcountry Preparatory School is organized into three divisions: the Lower School includes kindergarten through fifth grade; the Middle School encompasses the sixth, seventh, and eighth grades; and ninth through twelfth grades compose the Upper School.

Through coordination among the divisions, our curriculum is designed so that each successive grade adds to our students’ mastery of skills and maturation. Through the leadership of our Division Heads, the curriculum is constantly reviewed and refined to ensure the best possible academic opportunities for our students.

Lowcountry Preparatory School has high expectations for our students and our academic program prepares our students to succeed in college and beyond through a lifelong love of learning.
