The small school with a big heart tagline

A Therapeutic Boarding School for Boys

Nestled in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Westminster, South Carolina, Cherokee Creek Boys School (CCBS) is the small school with a big heart … a place where struggling middle-school boys, ages 11—15, come to discover a sense of hope and optimism for their future.

CCBS Journey of Self-Discovery Slideshow

At Cherokee Creek Boys School, our mission is to “challenge boys and their families to discover what is real and true about themselves and the world around them.

Cherokee Creek Boys School is a warm, positive, nurturing learning community that offers the benefits of small enrollment, hands-on academics, therapy, counseling, recreation and a talented staff dedicated to helping boys find their way back to a life of balance and harmony.

We do this by weaving time for fun, play and laughter, daily exercise, a balanced diet, music, love and support systems, creative outlets for hobbies and activities and time in nature into a healthy and healing living environment for students and staff. 

Our students are young and Cherokee Creek is a perfect place for “boys to be boys.” Our wooded campus is surrounded by state and national parks and wildlife refuges that put boys in touch with the wonder of nature. The region boasts rugged, forested mountains, scenic lakes, gorgeous waterfalls, and some of the best whitewater rafting in the country. Through our environmental studies curriculum and popular Treks program, we take full advantage of the hiking, camping, rafting, canoeing, and climbing opportunities — using nature as a powerful teacher and a source of recreation and fun!

We are founded by Beth and Ron Black after their own family’s experience with a struggling son. Our founders and the entire team are committed to the vision of CCBS as a safe, responsive, open, positive learning experience for middle-school boys and the entire family.
