Mecklenburg Area Catholic Schools (MACS)
Mecklenburg Area Catholic Schools (MACS) – A centralized, regional system of schools in the Charlotte area that includes 9 schools that serve Pre-K through 12th grade.
For over 80 years, Catholic Schools in Charlotte have offered a quality education in the Catholic tradition open to any student. Mecklenburg Area Catholic Schools (MACS) continues this tradition today. These schools, located throughout the Charlotte/Mecklenburg area offer an education that doesn’t simply attempt to fulfill the academic needs of each student, but is committed to building each of the students spiritually, morally, and academically.
MACS schools focus on strong Catholic values and traditions, and make these values and traditions part of every school day from prayer life to behavioral expectations. Respect for one’s self as well as others is an important aspect of a Catholic education and students experience the discipline necessary to develop respect for teachers and other students, as well as for themselves.
