Congratulations Buist Academy for being ranked #1 elementary and middle school in the state of South Carolina, according to SchoolDigger.com. These rankings are based on SC Ready and SC PASS test results. We are very proud of the academic achievements of our students. Thank you to the faculty, staff, administration, and parents for your dedication and support.
On October 26, 2015, the Charleston County Board of Trustees called for an elimination of all rolling waiting lists for magnet/choice schools. If your child is currently on any Buist waiting list, you will need to reapply for the 2017-2018 academic year and each year thereafter. Parents of students currently enrolled at Buist Academy do not need to reapply. However, you will need to reapply for any sibling that is not a current Buist student.
