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.

2017 Guide to Private Schools

Trinity Episcopal School

Map750 E. 9th St.
Charlotte, NC


Our talented, diverse, and dedicated educators engage each student in ways that develop creative problem solving, critical thinking, and collaborative skills. As an urban school, Trinity has the distinct advantage of an extended campus that includes center city destinations such as ImaginOn, Discovery Place, and the Mint Museum.

Our school community nurtures spirituality through the reason, acceptance, and service found within the Episcopal tradition. Regular and meaningful partnerships with local community organizations through our Service Learning program opens children’s eyes to the broader world and develops service as a habit of the heart. We embrace the richness of diversity by encouraging students to be socially-conscious and civically-engaged ambassadors of grace, honor and respect for others. We instill honor through high expectations for responsibility, respect, kindness and integrity, all found in our Honor Code.

The powerful combination of creating scholars, nurturing spirituality, and embracing diversity enables us to inspire, develop and send forth the future leaders of tomorrow. For more information or to schedule a tour of our beautiful uptown campus, visit
