North Charleston in Berkeley County sits Goose Creek, a quiet community with a small-town southern character. The Goose Creek area has drawn residents to the area since the late 1600s. The origin of the name is not known but it is believed to be named from the turns in the creek, thought to resemble a goose’s neck. The town includes the Goose Creek Church, one of the oldest in the state, inshore fishing charters, and the annual Fabulous Fourth in the Creek celebration.
If ever a city could be called the best of both worlds, it is surely Goose Creek, South Carolina. Goose Creek is the best place to raise a family in South Carolina and is located minutes from the international tourist destination of Charleston with the pristine beaches of coastal South Carolina. It is situated perfectly between the state's Boeing plant to its south, and Volvo's automotive plant to its north, both of which have turned the region into a hotbed of industrial growth.
The city's business community is thriving, as a result of a business-friendly, can-do attitude. And yet Goose Creek is more than a growing population. Through wise and progressive leadership, the city has achieved that delicate balance between growth and the preservation of its small-town character. Residents live, work, and raise their families here, surrounded by the natural treasure that is South Carolina's Lowcountry.
There are three high schools that serve the Goose Creek area. Goose Creek High School and Stratford High School serve students inside Goose Creek, while Cane Bay High School is located outside Goose Creek city limits and serves students from both in and out of Goose Creek's city limits. Goose Creek High School is the home of the Berkeley County School of the Arts (BCA) Program. Goose Creek has a public library, a branch of the Berkeley County Library System.
