I have 2 children at CCS. We have been CCS parents for 7 years. There hasn't been one moment when I have second guessed our school choice. The feeling of family and comadrie helps the children feel supported and guided through the difficult academic standards. Every one of my children's teachers are open and available. I could not recommend CCS more highly.

What a great school to send your child for a wonderful academic education, as well as social, emotional, spiritual, and athletic learning/training! We are truly blessed by the experience our 3 children have at Charlotte Christian School. The teachers are fabulous, loving & nurturing. The staff are very instrumental in assuring our children succeed, with necessary encouragement to perservere. We could not be happier at this institution.

My child had never enjoyed school, ever. He attended a summer camp program at Charlotte Christian and was so welcomed and encouraged by his experience that he asked, no begged, to be allowed to transfer to this school. We were skeptical until we went thru the admissions process and met the staff. It wasn't long before we realized what a truly awesome place this is. The kindness, respect and welcome families and their students recieve at CCS is the way all Christians should behave, what a shining example they are to everyone! After 4 years there I still feel the same way. LOVE LOVE LOVE the spirit of CCS!

we were treated very poorly by the admissions department at this school we were moving to charlotte and were assured by the admissions department that our child had a spot at this school. i even asked admissions should we be pursuing other schools just in case our child is not accepted they said absolutely not. once we moved here they turned us away. this was devastating to us because we did not want our child in public school. we had to scramble to find another private school for our child. i would never want another family to go through this experience. this happend during the schoool year the admissions departmenttold us we were lucky to get this news by phone and not by letter.

Our family is in its 4th year experience with Charlotte Christian Lower School. We have 3 children now attending and cannot say enough great things about the principle, teachers and campus. The faculty and staff are continuously seeking innovative ways for the children to learn and thrive for succes in academics, as well as social, spiritual & emotional development. It is a wonderful, nurturing environment and keeps our children enthusiatic & wanting to go back each day

My son recently completed his freshman year at CCS after attending CMS public schools. I was not only very worried about him starting high school but also transferring in as one of the 'new kids'. Needless to say, my fears were unwarranted. Within no time, my son joined a sports team and made many new friends. He came home after only 4 weeks at his new school stating that the teachers really seemed to care about each and every student. The secretary remembered my name and my son's name after my first visit to the main office and parents were very welcoming. All of my son's classes were challenging and because the school is not overcrowded, my son had many opportunities to participated and try out a variety of new activities. I found the guidance department and administration to be responsive and helpful to questions regarding my son's future college plans.

Our son just graduated from CCS, having attended there since 3rd grade, with the exception of one year spent in the CMS public school system. We have found CCS to offer a loving environment in which the teachers genuinely care for the educational and spiritual welfare of each and every child. Finally, compared with other private schools in the area, it is an outstanding value.

i love charlotte christian and have been attending since 5th grade so i have experienced what it is like. in no way in my experience has charlotte christian catered to the 'children should be seen and not heard' quote. as a matter of fact debates are encouraged in all classes i've been involved in. they offer so much including missions trips senior trip the annual trip to windy gap, extra curricular activities and an amazing sports program. the reasonable student to teacher ratio allows time for students to meet with teachers when necessary. things to look forward to are the 8th grade week long trip to washington, windy gap, homecoming, prom, senior trip to breckonridge, harvard model congress in boston and so much more including the privilege to worship God at school.

Charlotte Christian School is the best educational experience my family has ever had! Every single person working there is enthusiastic about their job, whether it is classroom teacher, nurse, coach or secretary. They treat their students with the upmost respect and set a wonderful example of how to treat others by example. This it TRULY a Christian school - no one is preaching hell fire and brimstone. The kids are being taught biblical principles, but no one religion is emphasized. In fact, about 100 different churchs are represented in the student body. My son has loved going to school since transferring there, and his grades have never been better. He will be very well prepared for college in a few years. I cannot recommend this school highly enough.

My child is in the elementary school at CCS. The academic program is excellent. All material is presented w/enthusiasm and hands on activities are incorporated as much as possible. For example, my child's 1st grade class published an Easter Alphabet book. Each child was responsible for submitting a page for the book which included a drawing and copy for the letter of the alphabet assigned to him. Through this process they learned about the publishing process, practiced their handwriting and composition skills, art skills, etc. How awesome is this? This is just one example of many I could relate. The extracurricular activities abound at all age levels-too many to list. If you want a top private school, safe w/challenging academics but w/a loving atmosphere for your child, CCS is for you! Excellent Administrators-Teachers-Families-Volunteers, all working together. The most sincere review comes from my child, she loves going to school & learning.

Personally i believe CCS is a great school. I have been going to CCS for 10 years now and i plan on graduating from there. If want an enviorment where your child can grow and be encouraged in his/her faith along with getting a great education then CCS is the place for you.

Communication and oppurtunities abound at CCS. So, if a parent is not aware of their childs progress, it is the parents neglect. Parent participation last year was greater than 70% on this nearly 1,000 student campus. As any successful parent knows, a student cannot achieve without nuturing, discipline, encouragement and steadfastness. Teachers, assistants, and principals available by e-mail, voice mail, conferences, 'parent coffees', and practically anytime one has a need. All the amenities one would expect of first class school. Swimming and tennis facilities, theater, band, dance, junior and varsity sports, discovery center with oodles of programs such as after-school and saturday SAT prep; also after school tutoring for core subjects--most with no additional fee--by the subjects teacher for continuity of learning. Clubs and fundays are plenty. If only there were more than 168 hours in a week.

After attending public and another private school in Charlotte, Charlotte Christian is a breath of fresh air. The relationship between students and teachers is far superior to any school we have attended. The students are truly respected and in turn they respect the teachers. Another plus here is the academics. If your student needs a regular class, honors or AP...you have that choice. At one of the competeing schools, a regular class was absolutely not regular. An honors class was more like AP. The competition was high stress. At CCS you do get a better choice of electives. For example, CPR trainning to sports medicine to anatomy. The families that attend are genuine. It is the friendliest of all the shools we have been involved with. Everyone is included to help with developing the school, not JUST the largest contributers. The religion is taught with everyone in mind

This school caters to old saying that 'children should be seen and not heard'. It does not take in to consideration that children in adolescents have special problems and needs. Being a Christian school, I was terribly disapointed after my child entered middle school that he was treated with such disrespect and disregard.
