A Timeline of
CHARLOTTE LATIN SCHOOL
Charlotte Latin School opens its doors
What began as a serious conversation between two gentlemen over a fence eventually expanded miles out Providence Road. The school was to be structured as a private, integrated college preparatory institution that will provide a classical education. CLS opened its doors with 425 students enrolled in first through ninth grades. The campus consisted of only two buildings and financial restraints limit the school’s athletic program to basketball, cross country, swimming, tennis, golf, soccer, track and cheerleading.
Parents’ Council is Formed
Parents have always been the engine behind Latin. Every parent is a member of the Parents’ Council which is led by an elected Board. It is created to support the students, teachers and staff of Charlotte Latin School through community, financial and social activities. May Day Play Day is a crowning achievement of the Council’s first year and became an annual favorite. Becoming active in Parents’ Council is still one of the best ways to become involved with Latin.
