Latin Community Through Our Eyes
As you approach the Charlotte Latin School campus, you may at first think that you have entered a park. With more than 122 acres of mature trees dotted with gardens and expansive lawns, the School's picturesque grounds certainly retain a natural setting, despite its convenient suburban Charlotte location. A few minutes spent walking along our hallways, decorated with students' projects and art, and listening to our classes, from computer technology to Latin, will quickly confirm for you that Charlotte Latin is a school dedicated to the love of learning and the development of intellectual curiosity. Charlotte Latin's numerous honors, including having students who consistently score among the area's highest mean SAT scores and three times being named a Blue Ribbon School of Excellence by the United States Department of Education, illustrate that our students thrive by all measurable standards.
Beyond our academic record, Charlotte Latin School is a community comprised of individuals who share a purpose and a mutual regard for one another. Charlotte Latin today remains true to its founding parents' original vision as a place where a stimulating learning environment is united with a vibrant family life. Named for America's early Latin Schools, in which colonial children pursued classical studies under the careful tutelage of their teachers, Charlotte Latin similarly fosters a close relationship between its faculty and students. With their teachers' guidance, students of all ages study and serve the community that surrounds them and the world that beckons them, in preparation to care for and succeed in the global community they will inherit as adults. Their parents, too, are partners with the School in their education, and are frequently seen on campus, attending special events, cheering on a Hawks athletic team, sharing lunch with their children in Founders' Hall, or serving on one of the many committees that make Charlotte Latin a special place.
With Mr. Arch N. McIntosh, Jr., as headmaster, Charlotte Latin is today a leader among independent schools and a cornerstone of the Charlotte community. We invite you to learn more about Charlotte Latin School. You will be welcome.
