Christ the King High School to focus on freshmen only in first year
CHARLOTTE — Christ the King High School has decided not to offer classes to sophomore students in its first year of operation. The decision to cancel the class was announced to parents July 26.
The school will open at a temporary facility in Mooresville with about 40 freshmen. Upper grades will be added as the first group progresses through high school over the next four years.
Three students were enrolled in the sophomore class. Approximately 40 students are expected to matriculate when the school opens in August.
Principal Dan Dolan met with the parents to explain the decision. "We want Christ the King High School to meet the individual spiritual, academic and social needs of each student," he said. "Each of these three students presented unique gifts and in the end, regrettably, we felt that their particular needs would be better served at our sister school, Charlotte Catholic."
Two of the students will have their class schedules restored at Charlotte Catholic High School, the third will be admitted upon application.
Christ the King plans to open a permanent campus on Highway 73 at Poplar Tent Road near the Cabarrus/Mecklenburg County line in 2012.
