Our Campus

Our students benefit from two campuses, located approximately four miles apart, covering a combined 117 acres.

Cannon Campus, located at 1440 Carmel Road, is home to the Lower School (grades JK–4) and the Upper School (grades 9–12), as well as administrative offices. Bissell Campus, located on Green Rea Road, is designed specifically for the education and development of Middle School students (grades 5–8). The slideshows below provide a quick overview of our two campuses and opportunities to explore the world beyond campus, but the best way to get a sense of our community and environment is to come visit us. Please contact the Admissions Office to schedule an appointment: (704) 943-4530 | E-mail
