They operate two campuses – one on Johns Island that serves residents of Johns, James, and Wadmalaw Islands, West Ashley (inside 526), Adams Run, Meggett, Ravenel, Hollywood, Edisto Island – and the other in the Eastside Community of downtown Charleston that serves residents of downtown Charleston and West Ashley (outside 526).
