A Public School Designed For Your Scholar.
Compass Collegiate Academy (CCA) is a new, tuition-free public charter school in Charleston, South Carolina currently serving scholars in Kindergarten and 1st grade. CCA is still accepting K-1 applications for the current 2021-22 school year.
What Type Of School Is CCA?
CCA is a 100% tuition-free charter school with no admission-testing requirements, authorized by the South Carolina Public Charter School District. Unlike a regular public school with zoned student enrollment, CCA is a state public charter school, meaning that scholars can attend CCA living in any neighborhood in Charleston, Berkeley or Dorchester County. If applications exceed available seats, scholars are enrolled based on a lottery.
What Makes CCA Different?
As a public school authorized by the state of South Carolina, CCA is entirely tuition-free. The only difference is that you choose CCA – your scholar is not zoned to attend CCA by a school district.
Prepares For Lifelong Success
To prepare scholars for successful secondary and postsecondary pursuits, CCA provides an advanced academic learning environment balanced with a daily focus on social and emotional learning to help scholars better understand their own identities, communities, and build positive relationships with peers.
Through a continuous cycle of assessment, analysis, and action, CCA will identify personalized needs to close academic gaps while also differentiating custom instruction for more advanced scholars.
