Ashley Hall School for Girls, Charleston, South Carolina

Locations

Thank you for your interest in Ashley Hall's International Boarding Program. Ashley Hall is an all-girls school in the Southeastern United States. We are located in Charleston, South Carolina, a historic city founded in 1670.

From our founding more than 100 years ago, Ashley Hall has championed its original mission: To produce educated women who are independent, ethically responsible, and prepared to face the challenges of society with confidence. Today this mission continues to guide our curricula and teaching philosophy, inspiring both Ashley Hall faculty and students to engage in a vitally enriching educational community.

Small class sizes guarantee personal attention for all our students, and our teachers are always available to spend extra time with students to ensure a concept is mastered. 100% of Ashley Hall graduates receive acceptance to either the first or second choice of university or college.

International students studying at Ashley Hall are better prepared to matriculate into universities because of the critical thinking and problem solving skills taught by discussion-based humanities courses. Ashley Hall girls are given opportunities within their community to learn and to serve, whether it is through a trip to the Medical University of South Carolina, the College of Charleston Library, the marshes to study marine life, or a hands-on project to give back to the community philanthropically.

Extra-curricular activities including clubs, athletics and arts opportunities are offered to build a well-rounded girl that is prepared to meet the challenges of society. Our home for International Boarding students (as of August 2014) is a historic 9,223 square-foot home across the street from our beautiful campus.
