North Charleston Creative Arts Elementary

We are one of the newest additions to the Charleston County School District.  NCCAE, a Title I School, was established in 2011 to complete the vision of an integrated arts school in every zone of the county.  We serve the students of North Charleston, or District 4, as a partial magnet school.  We are located in the Old Berry Building at 1600 Saranac Street and are right across the street from the School of the Arts and Academic Magnet High Schools.  

This 2015-2016 school year we have added two fifth grade classes and teachers, an additional first grade class and teacher, and another fourth grade class and teacher.  These additions expand our school to close to 500 students. During the 2015-2016 year we will continue our expansion by moving into our brand new state-of-the-art building located at 5200 Lackawanna Blvd.
