Envision the Possibilities

Building A Foundation To Thrive

This is an exciting time for Charlotte Latin School! The 50th Anniversary is such a significant milestone to celebrate. The 2019-2020 school year is a time for us to reflect on and acknowledge the collective efforts that make this year of celebration possible.

I am truly humbled to take the helm of Charlotte Latin School at this moment in the school’s history. To me, there is no better acknowledgment of Latin’s strength than the tremendous success of Vision2020, the school’s largest capital campaign to date. I am grateful for the families who have already stepped up to support the campaign. Because of the generosity of more than 460 families, Vision2020’s goal is in sight. In the spirit of Latin’s “can do” attitude and commitment to excellence, I believe that together, we can successfully reach our goal of $30 million this anniversary year. Vision2020 ensures that we enter our next 50 years with world-class facilities, increased access and affordability, and a continued commitment to teaching excellence.

I invite you to join Erin and me in contributing to Charlotte Latin’s future.

Together, we Thrive Ahead.

Go Hawks!


Chuck Baldecchi, Head of School

The Goals of Vision2020

Transforming students’ lives, so that they can transform the world.

What Inspires You to Give to Charlotte Latin?

A teacher’s devotion. A team’s camaraderie. A child’s potential. What inspires you to give?

Alumni Parent(s), Former Trustee

The School’s commitment to academic excellence has never wavered, and the other traits Latin instills in its students such as citizenship, discipline, teamwork and work ethic, bear fruit long after students leave the school. Our participation in Vision2020 expresses our gratitude for all that Latin has done and continues to do for our family.

While there’s no guidebook on parenting, we feel one goal is to provide our children with opportunities, experiences and tools that help best prepare them for the future. While we strive to accomplish much of this under our own roof, Latin is a second home where they will spend countless hours with classmates, teachers and school resources. Latin will, in fact, provide Beckett and Sullivan with a solid foundation as they face life choices. We are thankful and fortunate to all those that play a hand in this and look forward to the many years ahead!

Latin helps me round out my parenting by reinforcing crucial life skills I am trying to impart at home, such as civility, responsibility and the honor code. I also appreciate the parent meetings that address the important topics facing our children today, so we are all informed and on the same page.
