Charlotte Christian School exists to prepare students to impact the culture for Christ. Whether it is in the area of academics, fine arts or athletics, Biblical truth is at the heart of who we are at Charlotte Christian. Our goal is to help each student grow in their walk with Christ as they study, understand and obey God’s word and develop a Christian world and life view. Beginning in the earliest of grades, students attend weekly chapels and are taught daily Bible lessons on an age-appropriate level. As students mature, additional academic and co-curricular opportunities exist to challenge them in their faith and to help them grow in their wisdom and understanding of who God is and what His plan is for them.
Spiritual Retreats and Emphasis Days
Retreats and special spiritual emphasis days are planned each year for lower, middle and upper school students as a time for spiritual renewal and relationship building.
Lower school students participate in S.L.A.M. (Spiritual Life and Meaning) week in the fall. During that week students in grades JK-5 gather in the Lamb/Johnson Gymnasium for team-building games followed by a time of praise, worship and study. Students in grades 4-5 go off campus one day during the week and spend the day at the Hemby Center, a local YMCA-affiliated retreat complex.
Middle and upper school students travel each fall to Windy Gap, a Young Life-owned retreat center in the North Carolina mountains, where they spend two days and nights bonding with their classmates and growing in their relationships with Christ. Time at Windy Gap consists of chapel in the morning and evening and friendly class competitions and free time in the afternoon. This annual event is a much-anticipated highlight of every school year.

Middle school students also participate in a grade specific Spiritual Life Day and upper school students attend a two-day Spiritual Life Conference during the first semester and then travel off campus by grade during the second semester for a Service Learning Day.
Knights Service Hours
The Knights Service program teaches students the joy of selflessly serving others in the name of Jesus Christ. Beginning in sixth grade, students are required to earn service hours each year as a means of teaching them to serve in humility and to develop good work habits.
