As Charleston’s global connectivity continues to expand, our region is developing and growing new programs for local and international students to develop language and cultural training. Links to all of the public schools in the metro region can be found in our Education section. The information here is intended to highlight programs with specific international affiliations (e.g., International Baccalaureate), programs with language and immersion options, as well as programs designed for international students.

This list is not intended to be exhaustive or serve as an endorsement for any particular instution or program. We hope you find this information useful as a starting point for exploring international education in the region.
