Principal's Message

Tradition Starts Here. Do Right. #BeTheWhy. These are the beliefs upon which Catawba Ridge was built, and they are the

foundations upon which we will continue to build the culture of this great school.  My name is Darren Wilson and it is my honor and privilege to serve as principal of Catawba Ridge. I have spent my entire career serving the community of Fort Mill in our amazing school district as a teacher, coach, and administrator. My wife Jennifer serves as an assistant principal at Fort Mill Middle School, and our four children have all had the privilege of attending school in our outstanding district.

I am so blessed to work with an amazing staff at Catawba Ridge. As the leader of our school, I will aim to do my best each and every day, to do what’s best for our students, and to support the ideals of Be The WHY, our collective vision where student development is the center of our mission, because we are #TheRidge!

Communication is a key component to help us realize our vision and mission and I will keep our school community informed through weekly newsletters and social media (@CatawbaRidge, @CatawbaRidgeNews and @CRGuidanceDept). Additionally, please feel free to contact me directly at I look forward to serving the parents and students of our great community.
