Charlotte Country Day School proudly welcomes international students and offers them the opportunity to learn the language skills necessary to succeed both academically and socially. We were the first independent school in the area to offer students English as a Second Language (ESL), which allows international students who speak virtually no English, or who still need time and a special curriculum to become fluent, to be enrolled in an academic program.
The Admissions Office determines the need for English as a Second Language. Prospective students are recommended for ESL based on an interview, an oral English proficiency test, and listening, vocabulary, and reading comprehension tests.
For additional information on our English as a Second Language program, send an e-mail to ESL Department Head.
