    From its founding by Mary Vardrine McBee in 1909, Ashley Hall has remained faithful to its original mission: To produce educated women who are independent, ethically responsible, and prepared to meet the challenges of society with confidence. This mission is realized in everything we do, from campus traditions to our innovative curricula and teaching philosophy. It inspires both faculty and students to engage in a vitally enriching educational community. From boys two years to 5 years and girls two years to twelfth grade, our curricula, instructional methods, co-curricular programs, and facilities are designed to foster in all of our students, at every stage of their development, those qualities of mind and character implicit in our mission statement.
    The founding of Ashley Hall is the story of a dream. Determined and ambitious, Mary Vardrine McBee envisioned a place of learning that would produce educated women who are independent, ethically responsible, and prepared to meet society's challenges with confidence.
    As the only all-girls’ independent private school in South Carolina, Ashley Hall is uniquely positioned. Our exceptional program is intentionally tailored to the way girls learn best—through collaboration, discussion, and individualized attention.

    The 42 outstanding young women of this year’s graduating class were accepted by 83 of the country’s most prestigious colleges and universities, garnering $2 million in merit scholarships. The Ashley Hall community is proud of all they have accomplished! Click on the button below to learn more about the Class of this year, plus see the full list of this year’s college acceptances!
    The School’s ongoing stability is mainly derived from the continuity of campus culture rich in tradition and a respect for the past, which steadies our stance in the present. It enables us to plan for the future with confidence in our ability to, in the words of our school prayer, “know that which is worth knowing, to love that which is worth loving…with true judgment to distinguish things that differ….” Our resolve is further buttressed by our collective dedication to the Ashley Hall Hallmarks, habits of mind and action which all of us at Ashley Hall—students, teachers, staff, parents, and alumnae—strive to cultivate in ourselves: to be intelligent, creative, compassionate, discerning, collaborative, purposeful, and worldly.
    Our current Head of School, Jill Muti, carries on Ms. McBee’s dedication to single-gender education and is fully committed to providing young women every possible opportunity to acquire the skills and knowledge they need and desire to become twenty-first-century citizens of the world. Beginning in 2004 and throughout her tenure, Mrs. Muti has overseen the completion of a Master Plan that has transformed the campus and the arts and academic curricula of Ashley Hall. The Rivers Library, The Hoshall Science and Math Center, the Dining Commons, and the Elizabeth Rivers Lewine ’54 House for Global Studies are all evidence of Mrs. Muti’s leadership and determination to establish Ashley Hall as a leader in purposeful education for young women.
