SouthLake Christian Academy exists for the sake of God's glory and mission, proclaiming the gospel and discipling the whole person in all aspects of God's reality.
SouthLake Christian Academy (SLCA) is a private, co-educational day school in the Lake Norman area north of Charlotte, NC, drawing students from suburban areas across six counties. The 30-acre campus houses educational and athletic facilities for Lower, Middle, and Upper Schools serving grades JK-12. The college preparatory curriculum is taught with a Christian worldview by nearly 150 full- and part-time faculty and staff.
“There was a lot that went into our decision to come to SouthLake. But ultimately, it was the Christian environment, the smaller class sizes, and certainly, the Academic Development Center, which was a huge opportunity for our daughter.”

“Picking a school is such an individual choice, and there are so many choices these days for parents. For us, we just knew SouthLake was a really strong fit for our daughter. She’s benefitted from the individualized support in and out of the classroom. The staff has comforted her in her times of need and celebrated her success along the way. We are thrilled to be a part of SouthLake.”
- Shannon H., Lower School Parent
“All of the teachers are wildly accessible. If you have something to discuss, you have a concern related to your child, or if you want to talk about what they are doing well or not doing well – the teachers and administration are accessible and responsive. If I send an email at 9:00 o'clock at night, I'll have an answer before school starts the next morning.”
- Noah L., Middle School Parent
“When you join SouthLake, you're joining a family - you're joining a community.”

“I feel like the relationships that you make at SouthLake with the teachers and the students are really special. You know, teachers you stay in touch with after you graduate. Whether texting them about certain college classes, or just going back and visiting them at school, there are so many great opportunities to learn from them and to know you are supported while attending SouthLake or as a graduate.”
- Braeden M., Class of 2019
"Choosing SouthLake Christian Academy has been the best decision we have made as a family. It is not easy choosing to send your child to a new school to start his high school career, from a school he has been attending to since Kindergarten."
