Both of our girls graduated from Charlotte Catholic HS and have gone on to study at great universities. The school is well known for student, family, & community spirit and camaraderie.

... Read more Notre Dame Univ. Not a lot of distractions in classrooms, such as violence. Fabulous winning sports programs. Parents are very involved in many of the programs & support systems. Most kids that graduate from this HS seem to move up to higher learning institutions and do something good with their lives. We will keep supporting this school even though our children have graduated. Read less

Some of the teachers hired at this school are not well qualified, especially some of the foreign language teachers. One relatively recent German teacher could barely speak or write German. It was really sad and disappointing, and the administration's handling of the situation was even more disappointing.
... Read more They hired a very unqualified teacher and then dragged their feet for a full semester before replacing him, and they refused to meet with parents to discuss the situation in the interim. Mr. Healy was a huge disappointment in this situation! Read less

I started out new at Charlotte Catholic High school this year as a freshman. I had previously been in public my whole school career, so i was not sure what to expect. The school is older but still has very good security and the food was better than most. I did not enjoy the school at first but after

I graduated from Charlotte Catholic in 2004 and I can honestly say that those 4 years were some of the best. In 4 years at that school I never once witnessed or even heard of any school violence. All of the students there are respectful of each other and the faculty, and it was a great environment for

Because of CCHS I've been fortunate enough to be able to go to a private college and continue my education. If I am still living in the area when I have a family, there is no doubt that I will send my children here. I miss it terribly and every time I drive by, I wish I was still there! Read less

My son graduated two years ago from Charlotte Catholic, and it is the very best money I've ever spent. Now he is breezing through college without struggling like some. Thank you to all the teachers at Charlotte Catholic.

Great school, top notch for the money. Teachers and counselors are very involved with the students. Most students are in Honors or AP classes. Random drug testing and breathalyzers at school functions. My daughter has been there for 3 years and has never even heard of a fight at the school. Unbelievable
... Read more amount of school spirit by students, staff and parents. Perfect balance of sports, academics and fine arts. I would work two jobs to keep my children in this school. Great SAT scores and a 100% graduation rate. 98% go on to a 4 year college. Principal has been with most students since they were beginning middle school. Read less

As a graduate of Charlotte Catholic, I experienced first hand what this fine institution offers, and I am quite thankful that my parents had the insight to have me attend. Safety was never an issue, academics took first priority, and the most of the teachers cared deeply about developing not only great
... Read more students, but great human beings. The only fault I would give the school is that it puts a little too much of an emphasis on athletics, but since none of the other programs suffer, I guess that's fine. Charlotte Catholic is a terrific all around school and I will send my own children there if I remain in Charlotte. Read less

Charlotte Catholic High is the best decision I could have made for my children. The principal and leadership in general are solid, moral and caring. My child is a National Merit scholar and was awarded a multitude of National Awards and scholarships for everything from Latin to science to english. I
... Read more would sell my house if necessary to keep my kids there. It is a true community for Catholics and non-Catholics alike. They know and care about the kids and watch them carefully and have no problem speaking to the parents about difficult subjects such as allowing kids to drink in the home or not addressing hot topics. I find that this administration is extremely brave and realistic about issues facing students. Read less

The bottom line is, if you want your child to be succesful and go on to college, send them here. 99% of graduates go on to college, with 96% in 4+ year institutions. The student body is very friendly and welcoming, and fights are extremely rare, if not, unheard of. The acedemic programs are excellent
... Read more and the teachers make themselves available to you. We are a faith-centered community with mass offered daily. However, just because it is a Catholic school doesn't mean we don't know how to party. With all these good things, I'm sure you're wondering what the down side is. Well, I'll tell you. Uniforms, 'random' drug testing(don't worry,there really isn't a drug problem), and a good intentioned, but sometimes authoritarian and distant, administration. Read less
