Welcome to Charlotte Preparatory School, where creating lifelong learners is our passion and our purpose. 

Charlotte Prep is a non-profit, independent Pre-Kindergarten - 8th Grade college-preparatory school in Southeast Charlotte, where each day we welcome approximately 400 students from throughout the region.
An Exceptional Private School Committed to the Mission of Lifelong Learning
Students from Pre-Kindergarten through 8th Grade come to Charlotte Preparatory School for outstanding private education that prepares them for future success. What first began as a small Montessori school in 1971 has grown into what today stands out as a remarkable coeducational day school focused on growing vital leadership and learning skills. Our integrated approach to academics allows us to provide wonderful enrichment opportunities through fine arts, athletics, and after-school programs. 
Preparation for High School, College, and Life
At Charlotte Preparatory School, we believe the most formative learning occurs between ages 2 and 14. Our intimate learning environment supports the student through these pivotal years. From the Early School that provides a preschool Montessori foundation to the Lower and Middle schools more traditional inquiry-based curriculum program, we equip children for a lifetime of leadership and learning.
