The Center of Arts and Academics is a public school campus for the Charleston County School District comprising of several buildings for two separate magnet schools. Both the Charleston County School of the Arts and the Academic Magnet High School have their own core academic buildings, but the schools share common facilities such as a gymnasium, cafeteria, and media center on campus. The design is organized around a central covered walk, forming a major north-south axis that allows for each instruction area to receive the most natural light.
