Colleton Prep Academy named “Cool School of the Week”

The students, faculty, and staff at Colleton Preparatory Academy have a lot to brag about this week as they were just named “Cool School of the Week!” Last Tuesday morning, WCBD Channel 2’s Octavia Mitchell came to town to present Colleton Prep Academy with the “Cool School” award.

Head of School Jill Burttram was delighted and surprised when she received the news the Charleston-based TV station would be paying them a visit. “It feels awesome to be named Cool School of the Week. We’ve worked really hard to improve and grow as a school. It is a great feeling for all of the teachers, students, parents, and board members to be recognized for their achievements. I’m extremely proud of CPA!”, said Burttram, on winning the award. Mitchell presented Burttram with a plaque during an assembly in front of a gym full of excited students. Mitchell spent time talking with students and staff, who gave her tons of reasons why Colleton Prep Academy is a “Cool School”. Chase McDaniel, a first grader at Colleton Prep Academy, was chosen to stand with Mitchell during the assembly. “At first I was really nervous”, recalls McDaniel. The seven-year-old quickly calmed down when he was asked why he thought CPA was a Cool School. “I told them my school is big, fun, and I have good friends.”

According to sources, the nomination came from one of their own students, Natalye Kinard. Kinard said nominating Colleton Prep Academy for the coveted award was a no brainer. “Colleton Prep is like one big family. Let’s say we have an estimate of 230 students. If there is one student down there will be 299 students picking him or her up. I have been going to Colleton Prep since Kindergarten and all of my Junior classmates are like my brothers and sisters. I love the family atmosphere”, said Kinard on her reasons for wanting the school to be named Cool School of the Week.
