Mission & History

Our Mission

Charlotte Preparatory School fosters lifelong learning and provides an exemplary educational experience founded on academic excellence, positive character, and leadership development in a diverse, inclusive community. 


Our History


Charlotte Preparatory School is a college preparatory, coeducational day school. Founded in 1971 as the Charlotte Montessori School near Uptown Charlotte, Charlotte Prep moved to our current location off Sardis Road in 1992.

With the addition of the Middle School in 1998, the name of the school was changed to Charlotte Preparatory School to reflect our overall philosophy of preparing our students for future success, leadership, and lifelong learning.
