Published in 2001, Latin Translations: Stories of our School History takes its audience on a journey through the history of Latin's first thirty years. The School's founders saw Latin not as an alternative but as an opportunity. The pages of this archive bring to life the countless stories, the people and the campus through the voice of an author – Mary Yorke Robison Oates ’83 – who has, in countless ways, made Charlotte Latin her home away from home.

The Blue Review is Charlotte Latin's Upper School literary and arts magazine. The 2018 edition was created by a student group of layout, copy and art editors who concepted the piece then took on the lengthy process of art selection, writing selection, layout and design for each and every page, and then rounds and rounds of edits and proofs. According to the lead layout editors, as they searched for their inspiration for this year's volume, “We wanted to articulate our conflict regarding the burdens that restrain us. We found our voice through Tim O’Brien’s postmodern memoir, The Things They Carried, which focuses on a young soldier in the Vietnam War.”
The Blue Review is Charlotte Latin's Upper School literary and arts magazine. The 2017 edition was completely student-created, from selecting the art and writing to designing the layout for each and every page. The lead layout editors found their inspiration for this year's volume, entitled "Scarlet's Kingdom," in Paige Davis's ’17 whimsical colored pencil fairy tale. The lead editors worked with advisers to become familiar with the layout software and studied basic design principles to bring their concept of Scarlet's story – and their own journey – to life. It was a process that took them more than eight months of working countless hours after school, and often on weekends, to complete.
