For 70 years, Heathwood Hall Episcopal School has been an educational leader in South Carolina, providing students age 2 through 12th grade with a college preparatory education in a nurturing environment. While the school’s academic program is challenging and its outcomes are second to none, it’s our commitment to the development of the whole child in mind, body, and spirit that sets a Heathwood education apart. Heathwood graduates are tenacious, sophisticated thinkers and engaged, empathetic leaders, prepared not only to take on a dynamic world but to transform it.
“We moved our children to Heathwood with high expectations, and the thought that if Heathwood did not meet those expectations, we would not stay. Heathwood has not only met our expectations but exceeded them. Our middle schooler found her confidence and her voice here. Our second grader found not only structure and excellent instruction, he also found warmth and love from his teachers. We have two very different kids. Heathwood has been able to see each as an individual and pull out the very best from both.”

“As prospective parents, we were impressed with Heathwood’s commitment to academics. We liked that every teacher offered ‘extra help’ after school, and that coaches respect this time. Once our son enrolled at Heathwood, his confidence increased in just a matter of weeks. Teachers and staff have shown personal interest in his academic progress and character development. He’s also found it really easy to get to know people – both students and adults.”
