With an approximate enrollment of 922 students in grades Kindergarten–12, Porter-Gaud is a coeducationalday school located on the banks of the Ashley River in Charleston, South Carolina, United States.
In 1964, three schools—Porter Military Academy, founded in 1867; the Gaud School for Boys, founded in 1908; and the Watt School, founded in 1931—merged to form Porter-Gaud School. The legal name of the institution remains "The Porter Academy".
The roots of the school go back to the Reverend Dr. Anthony Toomer Porter, an Episcopal priest, who formed the Holy Communion Church Institute in 1867 to educate children orphaned during the Civil War. The school was later known as Porter Academy and eventually Porter Military Academy.
William Steen Gaud established the Gaud School in 1908. In 1948, Berkeley Grimball purchased the school from Mr. Gaud, and, over the course of 16 years, increased the enrollment to nearly 150 as the Gaud School attained a position of eminence among Southeastern preparatory schools. Mrs. Ann Carson Elliott, Berkeley Grimball’s mother, founded the Watt School in 1931, a coeducational primary school, which served as a “feeder school” for the Gaud School.
In 1964, the original Porter Military Academy campus in downtown Charleston was sold to the Medical University of South Carolina, and the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad (now CSX) donated the current 88 acre campus on Albemarle Point.
In July 1964, the three schools merged and dropped the military program. The new entity, Porter-Gaud School, opened its doors to 435 male students in grades 1–12. As modern school facilities began taking shape across the Ashley River on the property donated by the railroad, classes met at the old Porter campus.
Porter-Gaud opened its new campus in September 1965 with an enrollment of 469 day students. In the following year it became one of the first schools in the South to adopt an open admissions policy. In 1972, the school admitted female students into the first three grades. By the fall of 1976 the program had been accelerated to include girls at all levels of the school, although Porter-Gaud has retained close ties to its sister school,
In May 2008, Porter-Gaud acquired The O'Quinn Schools, a local preschool that dates back to the early 1970s, with the intention of maintaing the names of the schools, faculties, programs, and tuition policies.
Porter-Gaud School graduates an average class size of 83 per year. The 4-year average
SATscore is 1310 (the average for the state of South Carolinais 1023). Porter-Gaud offers 21 AP and 11 Honors courses, in addition to a variety of specialty trimester courses. Porter-Gaud School currently offers French, German, Spanish and Latin. The German program, however, is to be phased out in favor of other languages such as Japanese and Mandarin Chinese.
Porter-Gaud School is a member of the [http://www.scisa.org SCISA] Athletic conference. Porter-Gaud offers over 38 Varsity and Junior Varsity sports. The team names are the "Porter-Gaud Cyclones."
Heads of School
Porter Military Academy
October 25, 1867, while in Magnolia Cemetery, mourning the death of one of his sons, Anthony Toomer Porter, rector of Holy Communion Church, became convinced that he should start a school. Many of his son's friends could no longer attend school, as their families had been impoverished by the war. By December of that year, Porter had founded the Holy Communion Church Institute, using church facilities.
In 1879 the old Federal Arsenal on Ashley Avenue, a block from the church, was put up for sale. Porter went to Washington and secured the help of President Hayes and Gen. Sherman (Porter had saved the life of Sherman's nephew during the war) to convince Congress to lease the property to the school for $1.00 a year.
Adapting the military buildings to school use, it was fitting that the school became known as Porter Military Academy. Both boarding school and day school, students came from towns and farms throughout the Low Country, and eventually from upper South Carolina, other states, and even other countries. From its beginning, the school accepted students from all faiths. It was and is affiliated with the Episcopal Church, but is owned by its Board of Trustees, with the Bishop as an ex officio member. One of the primary goals of the school was, and is, character development, summarized in the motto on the PMA crest: WATCH: Words, Actions, Thoughts, Character, and Habits. Porter developed a broad curriculum, ranging from Greek to woodworking to athletics. The school day began with bugle call, breakfast, and chapel. Facilities ranged from a dormitory, an infirmary, library, classroom buildings, rifle range, tennis courts, a parade ground, and the notorious "bull ring" where detention students were made to march. Porter Military Academy boasted a naval program, including several surplus Navy vessels. The "Porter Navy" was discontinued, however, after a fire destroyed the ships. Porter also claimed one of the first high school football teams, one of which in a 1913 scrimmage held the Citadel to a 0 to 0 score.
The Gaud School for Boys
Mr. Gaud, born in Canada, had a master's degree from the University of Chicago, and had been headmaster of Lawrence Academy in Groton, Massachusetts. After marrying a Charleston girl, he founded the Gaud School in 1908 with 34 students. In 1912 he turned the school over to others in order to teach at Phillips Exeter and then to serve during World War I. He returned to Charleston in 1919 and again took over his school.
Last Graduating Class of 1964 The school was first located in a building behind his home at 29 Legare Street, but in 1920 it relocated to 77 Church Street. From 1928 until 1941 and again from 1957-1961, the school was located at 90-92 East Bay Street on the corner of Adger's Wharf. The school had also been located for a time at 77 Church Street and at 79-81 East Bay Street.
Upon Mr. Gaud's return to Charleston in 1919, his school essentially became a school to ready Charleston boys for successful entry into New England boarding schools. Its high academic standards meant that Mr. Gaud often had a waiting list of applicants. The number of his students ranged from ten to eighteen, and these were divided into two grade levels in his one schoolroom, one class studying while the other recited. After Mrs. Watt's school began in 1931, it was customary for boys to attend her school through the third grade, and then fit in to Mr. Gaud's school, which went through the eighth grade. Mr. Gaud would let his students take a break in the school day and go to the nearby playground, where one of the games was called "Gaud ball" - rather like baseball without a bat.
In 1948 Mr. Gaud retired at age 82 and his equity in the school was purchased by Mr. Berkeley Grimball for $125.00. Mr. Grimball began to build his school, a grade at a time, until he had some 180 students. The building on East Bay Street became too small for the growing school. In 1961 Mr. Grimball bought the Rutledge mansion on Broad Street where the students had classes until 1964. Mr. Grimball continued the high academic standards of Mr. Gaud, at first teaching many of the subjects himself. As the school grew, he added fine teachers such as Mr. Maurice McLaughlin, who taught Latin and Spanish, and Admiral Florence, who taught math. Mr. Grimball was a particularly fine teacher of literature and history. The school lacked athletic facilities, but Mr. Grimball at first used the East Bay Street playground and later took boys out to practice on his tennis courts on James Island; soccer was also added to the activities.
The Watt School
Mrs. Watt was Mr. Grimball's mother, so running a school came naturally for him. After her husband died, she began her school in 1931 in the depth of the Great Depression. Her first classes were held in the dining room of her Broad Street home, but she had a small classroom building constructed at the rear of her property. The reputation of her school grew among her neighbors and among those living south of Broad Street. Many of her graduates went on to the Gaud School, particularly after Mr. Grimball became headmaster there. Most of the children would walk to school and then walk home for the traditional 2:00 p.m. dinner. It was a homey and welcoming school and very “Charlestonian.”
The O'Quinn Schools
Founded in the early 1970s by Linda O'Quinn and her daughter Anna, the pre-school quickly became known for it's personality and southern charm. The School quickly rose to prominence as the regions major feeder for many private schools and expanded to a second campus. Today The O'Quinn Schools is an independent subsidiary of Porter-Gaud, maintaining two locations serving the James Island and Mt. Pleasant areas respectively.
Porter-Gaud participates in the South Carolina Independent School Association or SCISA.

Bishop EnglandHigh School - Bishop England is Porter-Gaud's biggest rival and the rivalry is one of Charleston's oldest and most prominent. Porter-Gaud and Bishop England trace the rivalry back to Football in the 1920s, when both schools were located in Downtown Charleston. The rivalry has spread to other sports including Basketball and Volleyball.
"Note: In the fall of 2006, historic rivals PG and BE merged their respective ice hockey teams, marking the first time such a merger has taken place in the school's history."
Pinewood Preparatory School- Porter-Gaud and Pinewood have become rivals primarily on the basketball court in the past decade.
Ashley Hall- Shortly after the merger, Porter-Gaud began to accept female students. As a result, the historical sister school of PMA, Ashley Hall, became an instant rival, primarily in girls' Volleyball and Basketball. Both girls' volleyball teams have won state championships, and the rivalry is limited to the court.
*Augusta Christian School - Porter-Gaud and Augusta Christian have built up a sort of "mini-rivalry" in the past few years. This establishment is due to Porter-Gaud's loss to Augusta Christian in the 2005 State Championship Football Game.
*Charleston Day School - Porter-Gaud and Charleston Day's lower and middle schools have developed a rivalry in the sports of basketball, volleyball and, as of late, bantam football.
