About Us

An independent college preparatory school in the Episcopal tradition with a carefully coordinated P(K)-12 curriculum, Christ Church Episcopal School is one of the Greenville, SC area's most prestigious academic institutions. However, the CCES experience encompasses much more than educational endeavors, providing opportunities for students to also fulfill their social, physical, and spiritual potential.

Independent College Preparatory School

As an independent school, CCES offers an educational experience that is truly unique. Small classes, dedicated faculty, and well-rounded programs help to create a supportive yet challenging environment where students can learn, grow, and excel.  The continuity of the P(K)-12 academic curriculum allows students to seamlessly transition from the child-centered classrooms of the Lower School to the more independent nature of the Middle School to the academically rigorous atmosphere in the Upper School. All of these components come together to develop the foundation for each student's future far beyond the classroom.

A Wealth of Invaluable Opportunities

At CCES, academic performance is not the sole measure of success.  From our 44 diverse athletic teams to our variety of unique service learning projects to our extensive selection of clubs & extracurriculars, each student can engage in activities that speak to his or her personal interests and skills. Our carefully planned programs also foster the development of fundamental characteristics such as leadership, creativity, critical thinking, teamwork, and other traits that prepare each student for a lifetime of success.
