A legacy of firsts – how Charlotte Country Day raises the bar in education [Partner]


After 75 years of educational excellence, Charlotte Country Day School knows a thing or two about preparing Charlotte students for success. Creating a safe learning environment and offering a challenging curriculum are part of how Country Day does it. Here’s how the school continues to raise the bar in education in the Queen City and around the world.

International Baccalaureate (IB) Scholars

In 1992, Charlotte Country Day became the first school in North Carolina to offer the academically rigorous International Baccalaureate (IB) program. This year, the school announced a 94 percent pass rate for its 2016/2017 International Baccalaureate Diploma students – higher than the IB global average of 79 percent. Their secret? Small class sizes and a commitment to developing each students’ intellectual, personal, emotional and social skills. We say way to go.

AP Course success

Charlotte Country Day prepares students for the academic realities of tomorrow including offering 22 AP courses for high school juniors and seniors to earn college credits. Last year, six students qualified for the National AP Scholar Award, 17 students qualified for the AP Scholar with Honor Award, 46 students qualified for the AP Scholar with Distinction Award and 29 earned the AP Scholar Award. Now those are some smart numbers!

First in education

Charlotte Country Day has a list of firsts that go on and on. Country Day was the first independent school in Charlotte, the first to offer a comprehensive International Studies Program, the first with a structured after school program, the first to have a high school Big Brothers Big Sisters mentoring program, the first to offer sports medicine services for student athletes and that’s just the beginning.
