School Notes

  • SouthLake Christian Academy, a ministry of SouthLake Presbyterian Church, is located on 30 acres off Highway 73 between the communities of Huntersville and East Lincoln County. Our vision is that Christ would be pre-eminent in all that we do. Because of this, we see the school as a mission, where students are taught the gospel of Jesus Christ through daily instruction in God`s Word and integration of biblical principles into every academic, artistic, athletic, service and social endeavor. It is our hope that each student and family that comes to SouthLake Christian will come to know Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior. SouthLake Christian offers an excellent academic environment, including 12 AP courses and highly successful placement in top colleges and universities. We also have an award winning Fine Arts program and field Athletic teams in 14 Varsity sports.
