From the Headmaster

Headmaster McIntosh
Headmaster Arch N. McIntosh, Jr.


Welcome to Charlotte Latin School. When my family moved to Charlotte and I joined this school community, I was touched by the warmth and support that we received from the students, parents, alumni, and faculty. Of course, I expected nothing less for the new Headmaster; however, I have found this experience to be the rule, not the exception, for newcomers to the Latin community.

If you are a member of the Latin community, I encourage you to visit this website often to check out the accomplishments of our students and the various aspects of our vibrant school life.

If you are unfamiliar with our School, please take a few minutes to review the website and learn more about Charlotte Latin. We value our teachers, and we celebrate our students as they learn new and important life lessons every day to foster their personal growth as well as their commitment to serve others.

Above all, Latin provides a balanced environment for our students. We are a school with a challenging yet nurturing atmosphere, created by the presence of academic strength, a comprehensive athletic program, a solid commitment to the arts, and an educational approach that is traditional in design, but progressive in implementation. We are a school where families of diverse backgrounds, races, religions, and nationalities share the common value of respect for themselves and for others, and an enduring dedication to the opportunities that will enrich our children’s educational journey.

Personally, I am particularly proud of Latin’s emphasis on our Honor Code. A plaque bearing the words, “Honor Above All,” is proudly displayed in every classroom as a beacon of the behavior we wish to model for and instill in our students.

Ultimately, the success of an independent school is largely dependent upon the partnerships fostered among families, the School, and the larger community. Independent schools have two clients: their students (including alumni) and their parents. At Charlotte Latin, we believe that we work together to provide the best possible educational experience for our students.
