A Challenging College-Preparatory Education in a Christian Environment

SouthLake Christian Academy has earned an excellent reputation in North Carolina and nationwide and is well respected for its unwavering dedication to Christian education, robust academic programs, and its focus on developing the character of its students.

By emphasizing academic rigor through a college-preparatory and biblically-integrated curriculum, SouthLake Christian fosters a steadfast yet innovative learning environment. This environment is further enriched through the use of engaging curriculum, modern technology, and personalized teaching methods. Notably, SouthLake Christian's faculty and staff exhibit deep loyalty to the institution, with an average tenure of 12 1/2 years. Despite this continuity, the teachers consistently innovate in their instruction, curriculum, and assessments, frequently leveraging technology to deepen students' learning experiences.

Through rigorous academics, hands-on learning experiences, and a wealth of extracurricular activities, students are motivated to expand their minds and cultivate their creativity. The accelerated curriculum is designed to equip graduates with the skills necessary for thriving in their chosen college fields. Our 40 sports teams offer competitive opportunities for both middle and high school students, while our fine arts program fosters talent in visual arts, music, and theater. Additionally, we provide mission and community service opportunities that enable students to connect with local, national, and global communities. At SouthLake Christian, students benefit from daily Bible instruction and biblical principles seamlessly integrated into every aspect of school life. 

We embrace students from varied backgrounds, mirroring the religious, socio-economic, racial, and ethnic diversity of the Charlotte area. At SouthLake Christian, we appreciate each individual's effort, creativity, and positive contributions to our community. Come see for yourself.
