Private Preparatory Elementary School in Greenville, SC

Our core beliefs shape how we structure each day:

A professional staff of educators provides the best foundation for our program.

Parents are the most significant adults in a child’s life.

A nurturing culture builds self-esteem and a love of learning.

Our academic emphasis provides a solid foundation for future learning.

A safe and secure environment is essential.

In Their Words

Exceptional Faculty

When selecting our teachers, we consider prospective employees as whole individuals. What is his/her education and experience in the classroom? What are his or her core values and how does they model good ethics and healthy habits to children?

By the time our team makes a selection, we have invested hours in becoming acquainted with that person. Carolina Prep also provides training to new employees to excite and prepare them for their new roles.

Student–Teacher Ratio

A low student teacher ratio benefits students by allowing them increased time for personalized interaction, attention, and communication. Our student–teacher ratio for grades 1st to 5th (including After School) is 15:1. In our kindergarten class, it is 12:1.

Each teacher contributes to curriculum customization according to their classroom’s needs. In addition, they keep up-to-date blogs for their classrooms:

Interactive Smart Boards and iPads aid students in learning and retaining valuable information.

We love watching our students develop in a multitude of ways as they engage in these creative and active disciplines.

Enrichment courses are taught five days per week and are an integral component in our curriculum program.


Based on Core Knowledge and National Art Education Standards, our art program incorporates art history, creative expression, aesthetic awareness, and methods of critique.

Art History

Students become acquainted with great artists and artistic periods. They then participate in projects that reflect the methodologies used by the artists.

Creative Expression

Students are taught to use a variety of materials to realize their visions for various assignments.

Aesthetic Awareness

Students learn the foundational elements of art and how to use them to achieve a desired result.


Students learn to discuss a work of art. Artwork display is also covered.

Physical Education

Students participate in varied physical activities five days a week. Our physical education program introduces children to traditional instruction in areas such as dance, gymnastics, soccer, floor hockey, and bowling. We also integrate contemporary physical activities like yoga, tinikling, and orienteering. Our instructor builds on benefits of daily activity with an appreciation for health and fitness that extends beyond childhood.
