We are in our 11th year at Charlotte Christian School and are so grateful to be part of such an amazing school community. We presently have children in every division, Lower, Middle and Upper School. Year after year, we have seen how this community supports, encourages & takes care of one another. And this is not limited to people within our school community, but extends to the Charlotte area & the world. There are so many opportunities to help others through service projects and mission trips. This has been a great experience for our children. One that has stretched and grown them in so many ways. The academics are top notch and we are so thankful for the quality teachers and the many interesting electives and AP classes offered. We love that the teachers take an active interest in our children and are rooting for their success both in the classroom and beyond it. From JK through high school, the Bible curriculum is so intentional and rich. The students really learn what is is to be an authentic Christ follower and get to see faculty and staff living this out on a daily basis. In Upper School they really dig deeper into theology and Apologetics and being able to defend the Christian faith. We love the way this has led to some wonderful discussions at home. From athletics to fine arts to leadership to serving others, there are many ways in every division for students to get involved, to find their place and to develop new interests and skills. One of our favorite things in the Upper School is the J-term program in January. Offerings include everything from mission trips to cultural/historical trips (Greece, Spain) to internships to fascinating special elective classes. It really is an amazing week that students look forward to. In Middle School, the integration of clubs into the weekly school schedule is fantastic because it allows all students to participate in a club, even if they have after school commitments like sports or fine arts. In Lower School, we love the many after-school clubs & the recent addition of a competitive Robotics Team. The Lower School musical production in the spring is always a highlight that students look forward to in 4th & 5th grade. But the bottom line is that my kids wake up each day looking forward to going to school. Even on hard days or days when they may have tests or projects, they know they are going to a place where they are known, supported and loved. And I am so thankful for that!

Our children have been part of Charlotte Christian for almost 10 years, and we consider the school our second family. We have lower, middle, and upper school students and have always been impressed by the way each division addresses the unique academic, social, physical, and spiritual needs of each age group. We love the variety of extracurricular activities, the commitment to strong academics, the authenticity of the school's Christian foundation, and the close knit community that surrounds the kids (and parents!) both inside and outside the classroom. The leadership team is always looking for ways to improve the school and is very open to parent and student ideas and feedback. We will graduate our oldest child in three years, and I feel confident that the foundation that has been laid at Charlotte Christian will ground her as she enters college and the real world.

We have 4 children enrolled at Charlotte Christian, spanning all 3 divisions from elementary school to high school. This is our 5th year at CCS and we couldn't be happier. I am extremely pleased as a parent to see my children prospering from not only a top notch education but also from a close community of Christ followers who love one another, read and teach the Bible, enjoy weekly chapels and small class sizes with lovely teachers and staff. Another wonderful aspect of CCS is that it is all located in one large campus so my 4 children run into each other almost daily, know each other's friends, can travel together to and from school. We are a close family so this is important to us. I have a senior this year - we couldn't be more proud of our CCS Senior Knight!

Our family has been at Charlotte Christian School for 19 years with 3 children. We have been so blessed by the nurturing Christian environment and staff as well as the rigorous academics and full array of involvement opportunities such as athletics, fine arts, missions trips and clubs. CCS has a very welcoming environment through N.E.W. Connections and embraces new students with enthusiasm. My children were completely prepared for the challenges of college academically, socially, and in their faith walk. My family highly recommends this school at any point in your child's academic career.

Christian education and college prep at its finest! It amazes me how well rounded my children have become since att boding school here. My high schooler is performing great academically, spiritually and socially. My lower school children are sponges. It brings a smile to my face when we go to church on Sunday's and their Sunday School teacher walks over to me with a smile and tells me how prepared my child was in her class, how they knew the subject and could finish off any biblical story that the class was discussing. I LOVE this school for not only the academic and biblical preparation they give our children, but for much more than that. When you are a CCS family member, the CCS community will love and pray and hold you and your family so close to their hearts. Closest thing we have to blood family.

I am extremely proud to be a part of such an amazing school. I have watched 2 children graduate from charlotte christian and currently have one still enrolled. Charlotte Christian is more than a school it is a community. The staff, parents and students are a joy to be around. I have watched my kids (and others) grow and become responsible, caring adults. If you looking for a place where your child will grow in God, Education and Responsibility Charlotte Christian is the place for you.
