History and Values

History

SouthLake Christian Academy located at Lake Norman in Huntersville, NC was founded in 1994 by SouthLake Presbyterian Church. The school began as a mission of the Church and opened its doors the first year to 23 students. Today, approximately 900 students are enrolled at SouthLake Christian Academy in pre-kindergarten through twelfth grades. In these 19 years SouthLake has grown and stayed true to our mission - to assist the Christian family by providing an education marked by a biblical worldview, academic excellence and affordability so that students are equipped to be salt and light for God's glory and to present God's Word and biblical worldview daily to non-believers with the promise of God's redemptive plan, to be a force and voice for Jesus Christ that will resonate throughout non-believing families. SouthLake Christian Academy remains a mission of the congregation of SouthLake Presbyterian Church.

"...We are taking every thought captive to the obedience of Christ." II Corinthians 10:5

"The Mission of SouthLake Christian Academy is twofold. The first is to assist the Christian family by providing an education marked by a biblical worldview, academic excellence and affordability so that students are equipped to be salt and light for God's glory. The second is evangelical in scope, to present God's Word and biblical worldview daily to non-believers with the promise of God's redemptive plan, to be a force and voice for Jesus Christ that will resonate throughout non-believing families."
