When looking for the right school for your child, you want to be sure they’re going to receive an education that not only builds an academic foundation, but also focuses on character education. You want your child to be supported academically, socially, and emotionally. You want your child to take pride in personal responsibility, developing into an active citizen who impacts his or her world.
Enrolling your child in an independent school reflects a deep commitment to lifelong learning, as a private education provides numerous opportunities, including:
  • academic preparedness
  • character-developing leadership opportunities
  • giving back to the community through service

It’s not just the experiences students have today; it’s about who they will become tomorrow. 

At Mason Preparatory School, we serve grades Pre-K-8 and aim to educate the whole child — academically, socially, and emotionally. We make this quality education accessible to as many qualified families in Charleston, SC as possible, as affordability is a key conversation for many parents.
