James Island

The town of James Island, which was formerly all farmland, was founded in 1992 and is now a popular residential area adjacent to Charleston, S.C. Like many lowcountry locales, James Island is well known for its small town charm and close-knit community. 

Approximately one-third of Mason Prep students are from James Island. Just a quick 10-15 minute drive right over the James Island connector, Mason Prep is a top independent school located in downtown Charleston at 56 Halsey Boulevard.
