Principal’s Message

March 21, 2015

Dear CCS Families and Friends,

First, I would like to thank all of you who supported our school’s Auction in one way or another. I am grateful to everyone who purchased tickets and attended the event, people who sent in donations because they could not attend, families and businesses who were sponsors, families and businesses who donated items for silent and live auction, and people who “won” items through the bidding process and the games. Also, in a special way, I would like to recognize our CCS Auction Team who did so much in the planning and preparing for the event as well as in carrying out the event last weekend.

Second, believe it or not, we have just completed the first week of the fourth quarter. We are in the “home stretch” of the school year with nine more weeks of celebrating our children as “gifts” and our teachers as “blessings”.

Third, this past week, we received our final report from the Accreditation Internal Review Team, and we will email this report to all of our stakeholders. We appreciate the commendations and the recognition of our school’s strengths, and we also understand and embrace the two required actions for school improvement / progress.

Last, the 2015-16 school year will be the 25th year of Charleston Catholic School. This will be an important milestone for all of our faculty (current & former), alumni, benefactors, parishioners, and current students / families. We look forward to a celebration at our Auction/Gala in the Spring of 2016, and I would like to invite people to volunteer to serve on the Leadership Team for this important event. Please contact me by email or phone if you would like to help me with the planning and execution of this event.
Yours in Christ,

Fred McKay

Spiritual Reflection

Prayer to St. Joseph, whose feast day was March 19

Remember, O most pure spouse of the Virgin Mary, my beloved Patron, that never it has been heard that anyone invoked your patronage and sought your aid without being comforted. Inspired by this confidence I come to you and fervently commend myself to you. Despise not my petition, O dearest foster father of our Redeemer, but accept it graciously.

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.
