We want you to get to know our namesake, Miss Ruby Middleton Forsythe, a noted African American educator. In the beginning, Miss Ruby taught in a one-room schoolhouse in Pawley’s Island for many years. Her school, Holy Cross-Faith Memorial, was supported by the Episcopal Church where her husband was the pastor. Fast forward, Ruby’s Academy is now run by Miss Ruby’s grandchild, Mrs. Vaudrien Forsythe Ray, M.Ed., Ed. S. and her husband, William Ray. ❤️ Learn more about our founding story:

Our Story

Ruby’s Academy Childcare and Preschool opened in 2008 by Mrs. Vaudrien Forsythe Ray. Mrs. Ray is the granddaughter of Mrs. Ruby Middleton Forsythe (“Miss Ruby”), a noted educator who taught in a one-room schoolhouse in Pawley’s Island, South Carolina during the Jim Crow era. Miss Ruby’s son, Burns Forsythe, worked for the Charleston County School District for nearly 30 years and served on the school board for more than four years. Mrs. Ray continues the same commitment to education as her past two generations. She has a masters degree in education and education has always played a significant role in her family. Both Mrs. Ray and her husband William come from families of educators who taught in South Carolina schools.

Since entering the childcare industry, Mrs. Ray has been committed to providing exceptional services to the families who entrust her with the care of their child. Together, with her husband William, Mrs. Ray ensures that the atmosphere at Ruby’s Academy is warm and professional while encouraging independence, problem-solving, positive self-esteem and the development of critical thinking skills.

Ruby’s Academy is designed to accommodate children from the ages of 8 weeks through 5 years-old, as well as an after-school program. The staff is dedicated to teaching and caring for all children, utilizing modern techniques and sound Christian values. Ruby’s Academy is provides the highest quality of care by providing developmentally appropriate instruction, character development, nutrition education, physical education, and Spanish instruction. In addition, annual assessments are conducted to determine each child’s educational progress. Mr. and Mrs. Ray are determined to continue Miss Ruby’s legacy by offering the best possible childcare in Mount Pleasant.
