Charlotte Country Day School Reviews

Our son is a recent upper school transfer to Charlotte Country Day School from a top private school in Atlanta. It's been a very easy transition for him as the teaching curriculum and styles between the two schools are very similar. We've been thoroughly pleased with the quality of the teachers at CCDS. The administration, students and families have been very welcoming throughout the entire application process to his on-boarding as a new student. His experience participating in two of the school's sport teams has also been positive. A few of the older legacy facilities need updating but the school is steadily investing in upgrades to include a new dining facility that just opened in 2019. The new Purdy Center for Science and Mathematics is amazing and rivals what one would expect to find at a major research university. We highly recommended CCDS to any student seeking a great all around experience in an academically challenging but also a nurturing environment.

Attending Charlotte Country Day has been extremely beneficial to me. The faculty, staff, and students great a friendly and supportive environment. In particular, I highly recommend becoming involved in their theater program, which hosts arguably the best community on campus. The Director of the program is nothing less than an artistic genius, and the program boasts a two-time consecutive state champion title for the their one acts. Simply put, the opportunities and experiences one receives by participating in this community is unmatched. I can think of no better place to hone my skills, and no better people to make theater with.
Charlotte Country Day has provided my children not only with an outstanding education, but with a strong sense of community and global awareness. The faculty and administration are extremely invested in the children and educating well rounded citizens that are prepared for whatever lies ahead.
