Heathwood Hall Episcopal School

3000 S Beltline Blvd, Columbia, SC 29201

Heathwood Hall, founded by a group of parents in cooperation with the Episcopal Diocese of upper South Carolina, is the oldest independent school in Columbia. The school moved in 1974 to its present, 122-acre campus near the downtown area. The high school division, which opened in 1973, graduated its first class in 1977. The curriculum is college preparatory, and admission is by examination. Instruction is highly personalized, with a low student-teacher ratio, special tutoring programs and customized curricular packages to meet pupils' needs. The interdenominational student body pursues intensive and rigorous academic and athletic programming. Heathwood Hall's weeklong winterim for students in grades 9-12 focuses on five main areas: academic and cultural enrichment, leadership, service, wilderness education and internships. During their four years, boys and girls must participate in at least one winterim internship. Another compulsory program, Senior Exhibition, is a yearlong project for twelfth graders that requires sustained and substantive independent research in an academic area of the pupil's choosing. The Exhibition, which takes the form of an academic paper or an original product and contextualization, culminates in a public presentation. Boys and girls accumulate 80 hours of required community service in grades 9-12. An after-school child development program operates throughout the school year for children through grade 8.
