Christ-centered. College preparatory. Educating the whole child.
Knights Lead: Celebrating more than 70 years of excellence in Christian education, Charlotte Christian is a Christ-centered, college preparatory, independent, non-denominational school, serving students in grades JK-12. We offer a rigorous curriculum that prepares students for institutions of higher learning and life beyond. Character and values are emphasized and modeled by a professional and dedicated faculty.
Knights Explore: At Charlotte Christian we teach to the whole child – mind, body, and spirit. Whether composing a song in a digital music class or winning a National Gold Key in art; trying a new sport or playing on a state championship team; taking a field trip downtown or traveling the world during a J-Term excursion, we seek to allow each student to expand their horizons by offering a wide variety of teams, classes, clubs and activities.
Knights Impact: Charlotte Christian does not simply provide a curriculum which contains a Bible class; we teach students to make sense of the world and their place in it by filtering their learning through God’s word. Annual retreats, weekly chapels, and special spiritual emphasis days are planned each year for students as a time for renewal and relationship building and learning how to impact the culture for Christ.
