Welcome to North Charleston Creative Arts Elementary School

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 2014-2015 school year we have added two fourth grade classes and teachers, expanding our school to just over 400 students. During the 2015-2016 year we will continue that expansion by adding 5th grade.

Teachers create units of study based on the state standards and incorporate the arts into the classroom.  Students also have weekly opportunities to participate in music, art, physical education, drama, library, and Spanish.   We also offer Suzuki Violin, and dance as electives for students. 

If you would like more information, please contact the school at 843-529-2831.  We look forward to hearing from you.
