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.
