CCS Families,

What a week for academic achievements by our students! Last Friday,
at the South Carolina Junior Beta Club convention in Myrtle Beach, we
had very good effort by all of our Beta members in their
competitions, and some outstanding results for two of our students.
Carson (8th grade) won first place in the Essay contest, and Isabella
(8th grade) won second place in the Art contest for oil / acrylics
painting. Both Carson and Isabella earned the opportunity to compete
in the National Beta Club convention in New Orleans this summer.

This past Thursday (yesterday), three of our upper school students
participated in the Coastal Region Catholic School Spelling Bee at
Christ Our King – Stella Maris School. Among the 15 contestants, two
of our students finished in first and second place. We are proud of
the efforts of Carson (8th), Joshua (7th) and Brendan (7th). Brendan
placed first and Joshua placed second. Both Brendan and Joshua will
represent CCS and the Diocese in the Post and Courier Spelling Bee
for the Tri-County area this spring.

Congratulations to our students for their excellence in academic
achievements! Go Saints!

Yours in Christ,

Fred McKay


We would like to congratulate the 10 students who received the
Sacrament of Confirmation at the Cathedral on Sunday!

Come Holy Spirit, fill the hearts of your faithful and kindle in them
the fire of your love. Send forth your Spirit – and they shall be created. And You shall renew the face of the

O, God, who by the light of the Holy Spirit, did instruct the hearts
of the faithful, grant that by the same Holy Spirit – we may be truly wise and ever enjoy His consolations, Through Christ Our Lord, Amen.

Mission Statement

The Charleston Catholic School educates a socially diverse student
body in a nurturing family environment within the sacred tradition
and teachings of the Roman Catholic Church. Teachers challenge the
students to discover their own unique gifts through creative inquiry
and critical thinking in the core academic subjects and the arts.
Our small, loving environment enables students to learn self
discipline through responsible decision-making and to develop a sense
of compassion for others.
