School Bells Ring Again: Welcoming a New Academic Year at Nexton
Hey there, Nexton neighbors! Brace yourselves - it's that exciting time of year when we trade in beach towels for books. Another adventurous school season is upon us in our incredible community.
Here at Nexton, we’re about more than just pretty pools and friendly smiles. We're fostering the minds of tomorrow - the brilliant thinkers, innovators, and trailblazers. Whether your kiddos are tots or teens, we've got their educational journey covered along every step.
Got a preschooler or a soon-to-be high school grad at home? No worries! Nexton is privileged to have an abundance of top-notch educational options right on our doorstep. Our community’s focus on learning goes beyond classroom walls, seeping into the very essence of life here.
As this fresh academic year kicks off, we're not only cracking open textbooks; we're swinging open doors to futures brimming with possibilities.
The Pillars of Learning: Nexton’s School District
The Berkeley County School District (BCSD) plays a huge role in our educational landscape. They're really pushing boundaries in how we think about education. With a mission to ignite imagination and fuel innovation, they inspire our kiddos to aim high and never stop dreaming.
From the primary years to high school, BCSD's dedicated teachers are on a mission to unleash the best in our youngsters. They're transforming the way teaching’s approached, with every school in the district exploring personalized learning. Proving that innovation is not an exception - but a way of life in our community.
BCSD's revolutionary commitment to innovation is evident in its practices. They have integrated programs like STEAM, multiage classrooms, and competency-based grading. This isn’t just educational jargon; it means BCSD isn't just preparing our children for tests but gearing them up for life's grand challenges. But when it does come to tests, rest assured - our schools are topping state averages across key subjects.
Future-Focused: Public Schools
Nexton Elementary, Cane Bay Elementary, Westview Elementary School, Cane Bay Middle School, Sangaree Middle School, Westview Middle School, Berkeley Preparatory Academy, and Cane Bay High School are all within easy reach. Plus, BCSO purchased land for a new Middle School in Midtown. They're currently working on engineering and architectural plans and working toward a 2025 opening!
Nexton's commitment to empowering future generations is embodied in these local schools serving our community.
Customizing Education: Private Schools
We also have a bunch of awesome private schools nearby. We know every child is unique, so having options ensures your kid can find their perfect educational match.
Private schools like Charis Academy, Faith Christian School and Preschool, Northwood Academy, Pinewood Preparatory School, Ridge Christian Academy, and Trinity Classical Academy of Summerville are all just a short drive away.
Stepping Into Learning: Preschools in Our Community
We believe the love for learning starts early. Preschool lays this foundation, and we've got the best of the bunch right here. Nexton KinderCare, La Petite Academy of Summerville, and Tiny Tots Tech Preschool are all fantastic options for our tiniest neighbors to begin their educational journeys.
KinderCare, in particular, sets the pace in early education. Children who have been enrolled in their programs since they were babies outpace their peers in developmental milestones by a whopping six weeks by the time they're 2. By the age of 5, these kids are nearly nine months ahead. That's not all - children who attend KinderCare for a year or longer consistently demonstrate first-grade level skills in reading and math even before they step foot into elementary school! Now, how's that for being ahead of the curve?
Broadening Horizons: Higher Education Opportunities
For those ready to delve deeper into education, we're close to several remarkable colleges. At Nexton, learning never stops, whether you’re a recent high school graduate or an adult thirsty for new knowledge. Charleston Southern University, College of Charleston, St. Leo University, The Citadel, and Trident Technical College are all within easy reach.
The Nexton Advantage: A Community That Teaches
At Nexton, learning isn’t confined to a schoolroom or lecture hall. Our whole community is an enormous, interactive classroom. Where winding trails become outdoor classrooms for budding explorers, and our green spaces transform into perfect settings for impromptu biology lessons.
With access to award winning elementary, middle, and high schools, this is a place where learning surpasses traditional frameworks and extends into every aspect of life. As we leap into this new academic year, let's pause and applaud our young stars for their boundless potential. After all, we're not just building homes here at Nexton, we're shaping the future.
So, dust off those backpacks, lace up those shoes, and gear up for a new year of growth and discovery. Here's to a rewarding school year! And to our newest neighbors - a big, heartfelt Nexton welcome! We're thrilled to watch your children flourish in our educational haven. Enjoy this exciting journey!
