Charleston Day School is a private, co-educational, non- sectarian school, which currently serves more than 200 students in grades 1 through 8. The school was founded in 1937 in a carriage house on South Battery Street and today its campus is located on Archdale Street in the heart of historic Charleston.

An economic development revenue bond of $4.2 million will be used to defray the cost of construction of the approximately 13,000 sq. ft. building for the Library, Science and Technology Center. The bond issuance will help maintain 38 existing jobs and create nine new jobs once the project at the school is complete.
