Carmel Christian School is a Christian, college-preparatory school serving more than 940 students in grades K through 12 in the greater Charlotte area. The school offers an excellent education built upon biblical truth, which equips students to impact the world for Jesus Christ. Students participate in a challenging and rigorous college-preparatory curriculum taught through the lens of a biblical worldview while fostering the growth of artistic expression and athletic distinction.
The school also has a student-teacher ratio that is lower than the national average, allowing students to form genuine relationships with the faculty in a small classroom setting. The faculty guides each student to develop academically, spiritually and socially.
Varsity athletic teams have won seven state titles since 2016. Students have the opportunity to participate in one or more of the 27 middle and high school boys' and girls' athletic teams and pursue a sport they love.
Students are encouraged to fuse their artistic abilities through performance and visual arts. Each year, Carmel Christian's elementary, middle and high school students perform musical productions to sold-out audiences. High school students also participate in the Blumey Awards competition.
Missions are an integral part of every grade level at Carmel Christian. This means that even from a young age, their students are taught about serving others and using their God-given talents and gifts to help other communities, both locally and around the world.
High school students have the opportunity to share their faith through “J-term,” a week of learning and service outside the classroom, each January. Educational and mission trips include Costa Rica, the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico, Texas, Georgia and more.
One hundred percent of the class of 2019 was accepted to the colleges and universities of their choice, including UNC – Chapel Hill, North Carolina State University, Clemson University, Virginia Tech University, Auburn University, University of Alabama and Liberty University.
Carmel Christian's accreditations and affiliations include AdvancEd (SACS), Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI), North Carolina Association of Independent Schools (NCAIS), Greater Charlotte Association of Christian Schools and the Southern Baptist Association of Christian Schools.
Fall Admissions Open Houses for grades K-12 are scheduled for Oct, 23 at 9:30 a.m. and Nov. 12 at 6:30 p.m. For more information about Carmel Christian School or to schedule a tour, visit CarmelChristian.org.
