SouthLake Christian is conveniently located in the Lake Norman community north of Charlotte on 30 acres in Huntersville, NC. Our campus and facilities have grown over the years to accommodate the growth of our community. We currently have three academic buildings, a gymnasium, a field house (with weightlifting, classroom and training rooms), a baseball complex, a cross country course, and a turf athletic field for soccer, lacrosse and football. An additional turf field and track is currently in the design phase and a new fine arts building is scheduled to be completed by August 1, 2023.
We emphasize academic rigor utilizing a college-preparatory, biblically-integrated curriculum. Each classroom is energized by a challenging and supportive environment. While each class varies, our goal is to offer class sizes that maximize student success. Our elementary classes are limited to approximately 18 students, often with a teacher and full-time assistant. Our upper school grade levels have 50-60 students each, with an average class size of 18. The average size of upper school math classes is 12. Our upper school honors and AP classes have as few as 7 students. Smaller class sizes enable our talented instructors to provide individual attention and to encourage students to perform at their highest level.
SouthLake Christian promotes an engaging and exceptional learning environment through the use of curriculum, technology, and individual teaching methods. We understand that children absorb information in a variety of ways and learn using different skill sets. Our multi-sensory teaching approach accommodates most learning needs, and we offer specialized instruction for students with learning differences.
Technology is incorporated into all SLCA classrooms. Every classroom features cutting-edge touch screen flat panels or smart boards. Upper School classrooms are equipped for video conferencing. Technology continues to expand throughout the campus and into the curricula with STEAM and Explore, Productivity, and Media Labs. The Upper School operates on a 1:1 device program with students receiving a MacBook Air laptop to use during the duration of their time at SouthLake Christian.
