We are a Beaufort-based 501(c)3 nonprofit organization driven by a singular vision: to provide a personalized, high-quality education for all types of learners. We further believe that cost should not prevent students from having access to high-quality education. That’s why 75% of our students receive financial aid. That’s also why our teachers, despite a combined 85 years of teaching experience, willingly accept a smaller salary than most public school teachers. And, that’s why we have 56 students in need of your support this year. As a TCS donor, you are a valued and integral part of our community. 100% of your contributions to the Scholarship Fund go directly to covering tuition expenses for these student scholars.
Let’s face it. Middle and High School should be more engaging and relevant. Education is the fundamental building block of a successful community. And yet, traditional education systems fail to provide students with opportunities to realize their full potential. So what might happen if we redefine where school begins and ends? How do we create a space where students’ talents grow and interests thrive in authentic ways? The Complete Student does both! And that's why your support matters. You can support the type of education that uplifts our community. You know the saying, "it takes a village"? Well,
Our school celebrates limitless learning not through academic material delivered by teachers, but through project-based, experiential learning built on collaboration, inclusion, and creativity among and between students of all abilities and their teachers. TCS students demonstrate their comprehension of academic material using methods that highlight their natural gifts and abilities. Our classrooms celebrate learning differences and create spaces where students learn to work together with the common goal of elevating all of their academic experiences together.
Decades of educational research indicates the most effective and successful educational models are those that teach to the student and not to the test. We base our philosophy and curriculum on this proven research. We value building personal skills, fostering emotional growth, and teaching students how to problem-solve.
We believe our students’ stories stand as testaments to our model, but we also believe in the importance of community engagement. We’d love for you to come meet us and our students. Share your Middle and High School experiences with us. And, please contribute to our Scholarship Fund.
