I have the best job in the world. As Head of School, I have the opportunity to watch brilliant teachers shape growing minds, to see talented students learn and serve our community, and to see our school embrace and advance our Christian mission to education and disciple students in all aspects of God’s reality.

There are three things that make SouthLake Christian Academy unique in the educational landscape of north Charlotte. First, this is a quality school, with standardized test scores and college placement credentials that are higher than North Carolina and national averages, at a cost that is well below average for private schools in the region. Second, our school is large enough to boast a breadth of educational, athletic, and artistic opportunities, yet small enough for teachers to know your name and your distinctive educational and spiritual needs. Third, we are committed without apology to our Christian mission. In short, we are a family providing superior education at an affordable price in the context of a caring Christian environment.

We would love to get to know you better and see how SouthLake Christian Academy might meet your educational needs. We have been blessed by God in order to be a blessing to you and others in our community. If you have any questions or would like more information about SouthLake, please feel free to contact us at admissions@southlakechristian.org. We look forward to getting to know you.
