Serving the lowcountry community and beyond


Our Past The Schoolhouse, originally opened as the Albermarle Elementary School in April of 1944, served many community functions. The auditorium was used to service local elections, Civic Club meetings, and cultural events including performances by The Charleston County Youth Symphony and String Orchestra. Thousands of Chalestonians have graced these halls, their imaginations blooming as they bonded with friends and grew to meet their potentials. We strive to recapture the energy of their youth and wonder as we create an atmosphere that promotes the spirit of community and self enrichment.

OUr Present In 2016, John Hagerty and Susan Simons purchased the Schoolhouse (previously Albemarle Elementary School) and renovated its lovely, elegant interior and transformed it into the office and private event space you find today. With many of the school’s architectural elements still intact, The Schoolhouse overflows with Southern charm and features original hardwood floors and authentic elementary school stage. Together with clean paint colors and modern fixtures and finishes, these elements create a seamless blend of southern character and simple elegance.
