Middle School

Middle School

The Middle School, the culmination of Prep’s intentionally-designed educational program, is well proven to provide students with the requisite tools for success in and out of the classroom and beyond Prep.

At their best, middle schools work to meet the unique developmental needs of young adolescents. Our very structure is based on research identified as the model most supportive of their success. To reach their potential, young adolescents do best in a small, nurturing environment in which they are truly known by their teachers as unique individuals.

Charlotte Prep’s model empowers students to learn and grow in a safe and nurturing space where they are able to take risks and discover their strengths. Our students stay children – just as they developmentally should be – as they develop appropriate maturity.

The results are clear and remarkable. Our students leave our care extremely well prepared to succeed in high school. Each fall representatives from prestigious local and regional day and boarding schools come to our campus to recruit our students, knowing that our graduates will enrich their student bodies. In the past decade, more than 98 percent of our graduates were invited to attend one or more of their top high school choices.

Parents of Charlotte Prep Middle School students can be confident that upon graduation their child will be well-prepared for whatever path they choose.
