Our flagship school, Meeting Street Academy – Charleston opened its doors in August of 2008 to 45 three and four year olds.  Since our first year we have seen amazing progress in the academic success of the students.  Located in the heart of the City of Charleston at 642 Meeting Street, MSA – Charleston serves students primarily from the peninsula, West Ashley, and North Charleston. 

 

Dear Friends and Families of Meeting Street Academy,

Welcome to Meeting Street Academy! I am thrilled to be a part of such an exciting school that takes seriously the charge to educate the children of South Carolina.

Founded in 2008 in Charleston, South Carolina, Meeting Street Academy provides a first-class, college preparatory education for families who care deeply about education but cannot afford traditional private schools. We offer an education that starts early with children at age three, recognizes the important role that parents play through intentional partnerships, and focuses on meeting the needs of the whole child.

Our goal is to ensure that all children receive an excellent education that prepares them to excel in the best middle and high schools, gain entrance to great colleges and universities, and enter the workforce as productive contributors to society. Surrounded by exceptional teachers who are passionate about their calling to influence and educate young minds, Meeting Street Academy students are cared for and supported in their educational pursuits.

We invite you to explore Meeting Street Academy through our site as well as a personal visit to one of our campuses. Come see first-hand the engaging environment in which our faculty and students thrive. We look forward to welcoming you and sharing our school with you.

Sincerely,

Dirk Bedford
Principal, Meeting Street Academy - Charleston

The teaching professionals at Meeting Street Academy are passionate about education and are highly qualified, certified and experienced in early childhood and elementary education. We staff each class of eighteen students with two teachers. This low studentā€teacher ratio allows our teachers to meet individual needs and develop strong relationships with each and every student.

Our staff is managed using proven business principles, where everyone in the organization is held accountable to very high standards of performance. Both in and out of the classroom, our quality instructors have opportunities to demonstrate leadership, to conduct action research and to pursue professional development.
