Don’t miss this week’s School Open Houses we’ve listed below. This is NOT the full Open House listing for each school or school system – it’s just this week’s. For our full listing of open houses, please see our 2015 Smarty School Open House Guide.
Hallmarks of the School include:
– an encouraging, caring environment that nurtures the whole child
– small class sizes and an optimum student-teacher ratio
– a diverse and inclusive student population prepared to excel in an increasingly global society
– a student body that is highly recruited by area independent high schools and boarding schools
Charlotte Prep is known as a school that focuses on a child-centered approach for education. We have created a culture and climate where each and every student is known and loved for who they are as ‘whole children’ with their own set of skills and strengths. Our students feel understood and supported to enter the ‘risk zone’ where authentic learning takes place.
Admissions Open Houses:
Tuesday, January 12, 9:30 a.m. (Pre-K – 8th Grade)
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.
Reading and art workshops for parents & children ages 3-5 years. All Storytime Adventure events begin at 10 a.m. Please RSVP to 704.583.1825 or email@example.com. Space is limited.

Trinity Episcopal School is the only K-8 independent school in Uptown Charlotte. Their passionate and innovative faculty are committed to creating scholars by redefining academic rigor using a workshop approach, inspiring a responsibility for students’ own learning, and promoting their curiosity in the classroom and the world around them. As an urban school, Trinity has the distinct advantage of an extended campus that includes Center City destinations such as ImaginOn, Discovery Place, and the Mint Museum.
The Trinity school community nurtures spirituality through the reason, acceptance, and service found within the Episcopal tradition. Trinity embraces the richness of diversity by encouraging students to be socially-conscious and civically-engaged ambassadors of grace, honor and respect in the world. They instill honor through high expectations for responsibility, respect, kindness and integrity, all found in the Trinity Honor Code.
The powerful combination of creating scholars, nurturing spirituality and embracing diversity enables us to inspire, develop and send forth the future leaders of tomorrow.
Join us for a campus tour of our classrooms, gardens and community spaces and see our classrooms in action. Tours are given in small groups and last approximately one hour.
