Hammond Pride Points

  • Hammond’s unmatched academic curriculum successfully prepares students for college and beyond.
  • The heart of Hammond is an intangible sense of community and spirit that sets us apart from other schools.
  • Our global focus opens many curricular opportunities and populates the faculty with seasoned world travelers who continue to add depth to this community.
  • Early Technology Week, a program unique to Hammond, is a co-curricular opportunity to expose students to primitive forms of technology and life hundreds of years ago.
  • Hammond’s athletic program, arguably the most successful in South Carolina, annually sees 90% of middle and upper school students participating, and is the two-time recipient of the SCISA President’s Cup Award.
  • Getting to the “art of the matter” is what we do best! Be it visual arts, performing arts, or music, we begin cultivating students as young as pre-Kindergarten.
  • At Hammond, education not only develops the mind, body, and spirit, but lifelong friendships are formed and nurtured as students “grow” through the Lower, Middle, and Upper Schools.
  • There’s safety in numbers! Our small size affords students individualized attention and numerous opportunities to excel athletically, academically, and artistically.
  • On Friday, you see RED! The spirit of Hammond comes alive each Friday when the younger students gather for a morning assembly and end with Hammond’s fight song.
  • Our Experiential Education Program is a trip! Beginning in 4th grade, our students travel within the United States and internationally to locations that complement our curriculum, assist in personal development, or enhance our arts program.
  • One world, one school! Students from all 14 grades regularly interact with one another, be it in pep rallies or opportunities for older students to mentor younger students.
  • Our College Counseling Program is the envy of other schools, and prepares students to navigate the process and ultimately gain admission into their chosen college or university.
