Kindergarten – The Primary Entrance

Charlotte Latin boasts a 96% enrollment, which means our families are happy at Latin. As far as statistics go, this number sets us apart from most independent schools. With a commitment to small class sizes and rich offerings, our students are known and deeply engaged. Our parents value this deeply; our Board of Trustees governs that we keep enrollment tightly managed. To that end, we only grow the school in Kindergarten, Grade 6, and Grade 9. We consider Kindergarten the primary entrance point as we have the most ability to add the largest number of new students.

It is important to know that at Latin, we believe the optimal time to start a child's academic journey is at five years. Read "Why 5?" below for more.
