154 Years of Excellence
In 1867, as Charleston lay in ruins after the Civil War, The Reverend Dr. Anthony Toomer Porter had a vision to start a school to educate the children of the Lowcountry. In the 152 years since he brought his vision to life, Porter-Gaud has become a pillar of education in the Holy City. Our graduates are leaders in many different fields in their respective communities around the world. We are looking forward and beyond the Lowcountry to be one of the leading independent schools in the Southeast.
"Porter-Gaud recognizes and celebrates the unique talents, abilities, and interests of every child. Working together in the classroom, on field trips, and in after-school activities provides boys and girls the opportunity to learn from each other intellectually, as well as socially. We believe that co-education best prepares children for their future as compassionate, productive, and socially-aware citizens."DuBose Egleston Jr., Head of School
