The Queen City is a thriving one with close to 100 new people moving here every day. Why is Charlotte so popular? There are a number of reasons. First, it’s a major banking hub and home to a number of financial institutions, so the jobs are here. They don’t call Charlotte the “Wall Street of the South” for nothing.
Secondly, the neighborhoods. They are quaint and modern. And did I mention the food scene? It’s a unique blend of cultures from classic American to Indian, Ethiopian to Italian, and the list goes on. Charlotte’s culinary scene is rich. And speaking of rich — that brings me to the third reason for Charlotte’s popularity. Families are attracted to the rich schools here as well.
How ‘rich’ you ask? Some of these schools’ tuition is unbelievable, not to mention some of the perks included with a student’s enrollment. According to Private School Review, there are an average of 828 private schools in North Carolina; 96 of those are located in Charlotte. The majority of these private schools cater to students from pre-kindergarten to twelfth grade. The tuition fees vary at each school and can depend on the grade level of the child.
The term “richest” schools can be somewhat subjective. The “Moms Who Thick” article refers to different aspects like funding, facilities, academic resources, and the socioeconomic backgrounds of students and their families. The comprehensive list below is some of the most prestigious and well-established private schools in Charlotte, from pre-kindergarten to college.
