Blessed Sacrament Catholic School has a tradition of excellence. We’re in West Ashley for our Cool School of the week..
Blessed Sacrament Catholic School has 222 students in K-3 through 8th grade. The school opened its doors in September 1948.
Some students have school issued iPads and E-books. Blessed Sacrament’s Learning Enrichment Accelerated Program (LEAP) provides hands-on activities for students in second through seventh grades, and is the only one of its kind in the Charleston area. Principal Katharine Murphy says, “It’s a Cool School because we have fun here, and we give a good education. We have teachers that push our students to be the best they can be and our students realize that our teachers care about them and want them to be the best. We’re also able to have our Catholic faith be important to us and we can teach it everyday in our classrooms.” “I love the discipline and the service we do, so I love it,” says eighth-grade student Sarah Shirley, “When you walk in the door, you have as smile on your face and teachers just make it so much more fun.” Katie Arthurs, an academic support resource teacher says, “We have everything. We are able to offer so much to our students, and as a parent here as well as a teacher I love that students have access to technology and smaller class sizes, newer playground equipment, all of that.” “I think the environment is great. I like the community, and the faith, and love around here, says sixth-grade student Anyla Mikell. “When I first came here I had friends immediately and everyone was so nice to me.”
BSCS is in the process of implementing Action Based Learning.
Coming up tonight on News 2 at 5, we’ll take a closer look at the programs offered at Blessed Sacrament Catholic School, also its long line of tradition, and commitment to community service.
