Saturday’s Independent School Peace Fair was a huge success. All participating schools enjoyed working together to raise over $2200 for girls education in developing countries. The weather was great, the The 3 Dudes were great, and the student crafts were simply amazing. Thanks to all who participated!

Saturday was an amazing day for Ashley Hall Kindergarten girls. The girls were offered a special opportunity to introduce each of the 7 sea turtles released with posters of the sea turtles’ names and species. Several girls walked in front of each sea turtle holding their poster and introducing the sea turtle. The crowd cheered on each sea turtle as it made its way back to the ocean.

The sea turtles released were of special interest to the girls, as they are exploring the threatened and endangered species and learning about coastal conservation. The girls visited these 7 sea turtles in the Sea Turtle Hospital last month, were familiar with their health concerns and conditions, and were elated to see them released Saturday.

Please help support the Sea Turtle Rescue Program at the SC Aquarium Sea Turtle Hospital by purchasing baked goods this Wednesday at the Kindergarten Bake Sale. Flyer:

ABC news coverage:

Picture of the week: In January 2011, 10th grade student, Ellinor Walters, learned about Aveda's "Re-Cap" program, which recycles caps from water & shampoo bottles into new shampoo or conditioner bottles. She led a drive at Ashley Hall, encouraging her fellow students to save these caps which Charleston County does not have the means to recycle. If not recycled through this program they are put into a landfill, where they take 75 years to fully decompose. More often than not, these caps end up as litter and eventually wash into the ocean, which can have a devastating effect on our wildlife.

Throughout the drive Ellinor was able to save hundreds of bottle caps from ending up in our landfills and as litter and today she shipped her saved caps to Aveda to be recycled! Thanks Ellinor!

Ashley Hall’s First Grade girls were especially concerned about the people of Japan as they had studied the country earlier in the year. They rallied together in a special fundraising effort for the Red Cross’s Japan relief initiatives. Their efforts paid off in a big way! They raised and presented over $3,000 to the American Red Cross!

Picture of the week: On January 11, student members of the Green Club and the AP Environmental Sciences class laid the first flats for the Green Roof on the Hoshall Science center. The plants, which are mainly succulents, will create a micro-climate on the roof that moderates the temperature above and below and assists with water retention. This roof top garden will also create an attractive environment for native butterflies and birds, provide a living laboratory for students, and absorb solar radiation, reducing the heat load on the building.

General information

Welcome from the Admission Office! Ashley Hall is a premier college preparatory school for girls and young women that offers a rigorous academic program based on the traditions of classical education. Training begins in the primary grades with grammar, rhetoric, and logic, when our youngest students are taught literally how to learn as well as to think and express themselves in the written and spoken word. In upper grades, students learn an appreciation for and an understanding of the humanities, arts, and sciences. Ashley Hall seniors graduate with a global and cultural awareness that will serve them well in our increasingly interconnected world and they are prepared to learn, lead and excel in future avenues of opportunity. We offer admission to girls and young women who are bright, eager, and willing to challenge themselves both academically and personally. We value students who are concerned for others and who strive for excellence in all aspects of life.
