Lake Norman has Lots Of School Choices


The Lake Norman area has a wide range of choices for sending your child to school

The housing boom and rapid growth in the Lake Norman area has fueled the need for more schools. The demand has also made private and charter schools and home schooling viable alternatives for many parents.

There are at least 23 private and charter schools in the Lake Norman area, according to the N.C. Division of Non-Public Education.

More charter schools are continuing to crop up in the Lake Norman area.

The new Pine Lake Preparatory, a K-12 college prep charter school in Mooresville, will eventually house 1,300 to 1,400 K-12 students.

A temporary school site will open this fall for up to 1,100 students, said Kate Alice Dunaway, a board member of the school. So far, they’ve received more than 2,500 applications, she said.

“We did anticipate a high interest because of (Lake Norman’s) rapid growth,” Dunaway said.

Many parents say they’re also turning to home schooling for the flexibility and freedom.

About 60,000 North Carolina students are home schooled, according to the N.C. Division of Non-Public Education.
