Charlotte Latin is an accredited, independent, coeducational, non-sectarian, college-preparatory, day school serving more than 1400 students in transitional kindergarten through twelfth grade on a 122-acre campus in southeast Charlotte. Founded in 1970, Latin’s mission is to encourage individual development and civility by inspiring students to learn, to serve others, and to pursue growth-promoting opportunities. Parents are welcome partners in their children’s school lives, and our School community embraces Latin’s mission, core values, and Honor Code.
Traditional by design yet innovative in implementation, Charlotte Latin promotes a strong sense of community, a challenging yet nurturing environment, and a commitment to academic excellence. Latin is a school that values teaching and celebrates learning, which is realized in 100 percent of graduates being accepted to college, including some of the nation’s most prestigious institutions of higher learning.
Students are presented with many opportunities to explore and develop their interests, including leadership development and co-curricular options and a TK–12 community service program that fosters a lifelong commitment to service through age-appropriate activities. Students also are encouraged to explore their world and are supported in this endeavor through the CLS Global Studies and Study Abroad Programs.

– An Option for Every Child: Co-curricular Life at Latin
2:00 – 3:00 p.m.
This school day event will feature a panel of high school seniors who will share their stories to illuminate the striking fact that there is no one portrait of a graduate at Charlotte Latin School. In contrast, our students are involved in a wide variety of activities that encourage individual exploration and engagement. Latin’s Artists, Athletes, Service Ambassadors, Engineers, Debaters, Club Members, Global Citizens, and Tech Stars will be on hand, with many of their faculty advisors, to illustrate Latin’s robust co-curricular life.
Target Audience: Prospective grade 6-12 students and parents of prospective kindergarten – grade 12 students
Please note that admissions applications are due no later than January 15, 2016.

Palisades Episcopal School (PES) is an accredited, Christ-centered independent day school serving 170 students in Junior Kindergarten – 8th grade on a 10 acre campus in Southwest Mecklenburg County. As a liberal arts, neo-classical institution, PES offers students opportunities for integrated study by seamlessly weaving together scientific, cultural, historical, and literary investigations. With mastery of skills as the goal, rather than just memorization of facts, a PES student is provided time to think, discuss, process and apply their knowledge, which in turn promotes intellectual curiosity and creates lifelong learners. Intimate class sizes, and low teacher-student ratios, allow for differentiated instruction across every grade. Service integration helps students develop citizenship skills and fosters values of integrity, courage, responsibility, compassion, and hard work. PES students graduate knowing how to connect their heads to their hearts and academically prepared for high school and beyond. All PES graduates have been accepted into their first choice high school.
Every day is an Open House at PES – tours scheduled at your convenience. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 704.583.1825 to schedule your visit.

VERITAS Community School is a NC tuition-free charter elementary school that empowers the scholar and athlete in every child to excel academically through health and wellness practices within a peaceful environment. We currently serve grades K-3, adding 4th grade in 2016 and 5th grade in 2017.
We drive high academic standards through differentiated, collaborative, and inquiry-based instruction, using the Core Knowledge Sequence, a content-rich, sequential, and developmentally-appropriate curriculum that will give students the foundations needed to become capable and creative citizens who are strong readers and mathematicians. We teach with a student-centered approach where the teacher is a facilitator who serves as a personal model of how to acquire knowledge and serves as a resource to students. Our teachers individualize instruction through interpreting data derived from performance assessments thereby challenging all students to perform at their highest level.
November 17th from 5:30pm-7:00pm at our temporary location, 600 Seigle Avenue.
