CHARLOTTE HAS a variety of options for parents considering enrolling their children in private schools. From sports teams to 3-D technology to programs for students with special needs, each institution has its own strengths. We hope this guide provides information that helps your family make an informed decision.

How We Gathered the Data:
Charlotte-area private schools were sent a link to an online survey. We filled information gaps with 2016-17 data found on schools’ websites. If 2016-17 school-year information was not provided, it is because the school declined to submit the required information or it was not available on the school’s website. Many schools have different ways of reporting SAT or ACT scores. Rather than ask everyone to conform to a certain standard, we printed the scores as given. Survey submissions were edited for brevity, clarity and space. *Tuition is annual unless otherwise noted.

Through an intentional TK-12 global curriculum, Providence Day prepares our students to be empathetic problem solvers and active global citizens.
Our classrooms are places of discovery, where learning about diverse cultures and shared experiences creates connections to a larger humanity.
We teach students to respect others, develop their communication skills, and build their confidence, so they can collaborate and lead in the world that is culturally diverse.
Our international network of partner schools allows us to send students and faculty out to the world, and to bring the world back to our school.
We exist to inspire in our students a passion for learning, a commitment to personal integrity, and a sense of social responsibility.
