Our mission is to encourage individual development and civility in our students by inspiring them to learn, by encouraging them to serve others, and by offering them many growth-promoting opportunities.
Honor Above All
Charlotte Latin embraces the development of personal honor as a lifelong pursuit in the building of character. Adherence to the Honor Code is required from all members of the School community. We honor one another and our personal gifts and accomplishments.
Commitment to Excellence
The quest for excellence that has characterized Charlotte Latin since its founding extends to all aspects of school life, and is viewed as the effort to do one’s best and to seek to improve continually. This quest embodies the boundless spirit that characterizes our school community, and it is grounded in our commitment to create an exceptional environment for teaching and learning.
Charlotte Latin encourages the development of leadership as a lifelong characteristic of our students and adheres to the concept of service to others (servant leadership) as the ideal model that best meets the needs of our school community, our nation, and the world.
Respect for Oneself and Others
Respect is the foundation of the Charlotte Latin School community. We celebrate differences that include diverse people, cultures, and perspectives.
Each person at Charlotte Latin is accountable for his or her actions. We all share responsibility for the welfare of the greater School community.
Charlotte Latin leads by example and our members are willing to do what is right and true through the courage of their convictions in spite of possible consequences or the opinions of others.
