Charleston Collegiate School is pleased to announce that a new restaurant, Luciano’s Pizzeria located at Bohicket Marina on John’s Island, has pledged to donate 10 percent of its profits to the school’s Scholarship Program through the John’s Island Academic Scholarship Fund.
The fund provides scholarships for local students with strong academic performance and financial need to attend John’s Island private schools. The fund is currently providing funding for a number of CCS students who meet the fund’s rigorous academic requirements as well as show financial need.
Charleston Collegiate has a large number of applicants with very strong academics who cannot afford the tuition to attend.
“It is through programs like this that we have been able to provide a strong education to many students who will be the first in their family to attend college,” Hacker Burr, Head of School, said. “We couldn’t be more appreciative of the involvement of local businesses like Luciano’s and we are excited about the opportunities this will create for deserving John’s Island students.”
Charleston Collegiate School is a PreK-12, nonsectarian, independent day school, which strives to recognize, nurture, and challenge each of its students. The school provides a comprehensive learning experience with a focus around four pillars: Project Based Learning, Financial Literacy, Artistic Expression, and Leadership through the Outdoor Education Program.
- 100% of graduates are accepted to colleges and universities
- 8:1 student-teacher ratio
- 81% of faculty have advanced degrees
