Moving to Charlotte
Charlotte is a family friendly place to live, offering families many educational choices and opportunities. Currently, our region boasts 164 public schools, 85 private schools and over 25 charter schools. An important part of our consulting practice is helping families who are relocating to Charlotte learn the ins and outs of the private, public, magnet and charter school systems. The Charlotte Mecklenburg Public School (CMS) system is composed of zones so where you live determines your home school situation and guarantees you a placement. Families do have other schooling options available to consider but these options are not guaranteed.

The number of school choices in Charlotte is growing. We are here to help you understand your options and the steps you need to take in this sometimes overwhelming school search process. We will discuss what the big trends are in Charlotte and what is likely to be coming down the road in the next couple of years. For families moving here we emphasize that finding the right house should be based first on finding the right school.
At present we consult on independent schools, CMS, charter and magnet schools. We will consult with you concerning your schooling options available including: zoned-based schools, learning immersion, talent development, language programs, STEM programs and all types of charter schools. Please review our fees for individual personalized consultations.
Please note that to be eligible to register for CMS district schools you will need to have certain documents on hand. These documents include proof of residency, a birth certificate and a health immunization record. Remember, our goal is to make this process stress-free and manageable for you! You will be school savvy and confident!
