The original Courtenay School (upper Meeting Street, Ward 7) was erected in 1888 and dedicated on Feb. 4, 1889.  The school was named after Charleston Mayor William Ashmead Courtenay (Mayor of Charleston SC, 1879-1887).
The modern (1955) Courtenay Elementary School became the home of Charleston Progressive Academy in 2006. After spending millions in renovations, the campus was ordered to be vacated and gutted in 2010.
