Columbia's age three through grade 12 independent school where students learn to expect more.
  • At Heathwood, your child fits in precisely because he can stand out. And he learns to expect more – of his school and of himself – precisely because we respect his fullest potential.
  • When a child knows that her teachers and classmates respect her mind, her talents, and her way of seeing the world, she comes to expect more of herself.
  • He sets his goals high, sets to working hard, and surpasses even his own high expectations.
  • Respect for the dignity of every human, and respect for the unique mind of every learner.

Welcome to the Heathwood Hall Sandbox!

Welcome to the Heathwood Hall Sandbox!

This sandbox is completely devoid of all design-elements - we promise the new site will not be styled in the austere white and grey you see here! Headers and other typographical elements, for example, will be styled according to the final website design (once confirmed). The pages we have built are at this point free of any content — no pictures, copy or design elements. For now, you’ll have to take a leap of faith in imagining that the site you see at the prototype phase and the site you will ultimately see are the same site, even though they look nothing like one another at this point!

PJs, Picture Books and Pure Delight

The ECLC had quite a cozy morning Friday as students, teachers, parents and grandparents donned their PJs, read picture books, and indulged in hot chocolate and other special snacks.

PJs and Picture Books is an ECLC tradition and an opportunity for students to review SC Picture Book Award nominees and vote on their favorites.   The celebration began in the mini-gym, where Head of School Dr. Heath and EC 3s teacher Mrs. Fewell (both in costume!) acted out That is Not a Good Idea by Mo Willems, as librarian Jennifer Falvey (in her PJs) read the story aloud.
