Welcome to Buist Academy For Advanced Studies
Buist Academy for Advanced Studies is an academic magnet school established in 1985. The school provides a rigorous curriculum emphasizing language arts, mathematics, social studies, science, and foreign languages.
Thank you very much for your patience throughout this new application and waiting list process. On October 26, 2015, the Charleston County School District called for an elimination of rolling waiting lists for all magnet/choice schools. Buist Academy has been granted permission to maintain the existing waiting lists for the 2016-2017 school year. You do not need to reapply this year if your child is currently on the waiting list. You will need to reapply yearly starting with the 2017 - 2018 school year.
Once again, thank you for your patience as we awaited official word from the school district concerning this matter.
