Mead Hall School was established in 1955 as a parish day school. In 2012, Mead Hall joined forces with Aiken Preparatory School, which was founded in 1916 as a boarding school for 4th to 8th grade boys. The joining of these two independent schools formed a single K-12 program on two campuses in downtown Aiken.  Today Mead Hall serves over 300 students with a variety of interests in academic, athletic and extra-curricular interests. Small class sizes and a college curriculum help prepare students for a successful future. Accredited through the Southern Association of Independent Schools (SAIS), Mead Hall School is a great choice for all of your children.
