If your family is considering an independent school for the future, now is the time to be visiting schools and preparing to apply. At Charlotte Prep, we look forward to partnering with new families and helping them to navigate the Admissions process. Being a close-knit, small community, we love getting to know our applicant families well and helping them determine if Charlotte Prep is the right fit.
A great first step is to attend an Open House. Our next event is scheduled for Tuesday, January 9, at 9:30 a.m. Here you will have an opportunity to meet our faculty and staff, visit with parents and students, and tour the campus. Our Student Ambassadors love to share their Charlotte Prep stories and will be happy to answer your questions and give you a sneak peek at how we nurture young leaders who are well-prepared to succeed in high school.
Another way to get to know us is to visit campus for one of our special events such as a sporting competition, drama production, Parent Education evening or STEM night. You can check out our website for more information on upcoming events. When you do attend, be sure to notice the way our families, students, and staff interact and how our One Prep spirit animates everything that we do.
Finally, we encourage you to visit and tour when school is in session. The magic of Charlotte Prep is in the classrooms where our students are engaged, challenged and most importantly, having fun. You can book a tour here or give us a call to find a time that works best for you.
If you decide to apply, you do so online through our website. It’s a straightforward process but we are always available to help if you have questions or need assistance. Click here for more about the process and the requirements for each grade level.
Choosing a school for your family can be stressful, especially with so many choices to consider. The key is to find an environment where you are confident your child will thrive and your family will be part of a caring community. We look forward to supporting you on this journey.
