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 the Rest of 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
schools more traditional inquiry-based curriculum program, we equip children for a lifetime of leadership and learning. Visit our Alumni
