Thank you for your interest in Classical Charter Schools of Wilmington.

Our family of schools consists of two of the top elementary schools in Brunswick county, the school with the highest academic growth in Columbus County, twenty-one-time National Champion cheer squad, eight-time State Champion archery program, and NC Department of Labor OSHA Awarded campuses for safety.

We also offer an online blended learning option for the 2021-2022 school year that will follow the same classical curriculum as our on-campus instruction. Blended learning will take place synchronously face-to-face online, with select days that students must attend on campus for state and national testing as well as to participate in various optional events on campus. Your student will be provided the hardware and software needed for blended learning, however families are required to provide sufficient internet access and supervision daily.

We caution that online learning may not be feasible for all children in all homes, and we are assessing each child’s past achievements with online. Those children who have not demonstrated satisfactory achievement with online may be seated on campus if space permits to ensure that they learn to the fullest extent of their true potential. If online becomes desired after school begins, only students who had attended on campus from the first day can be considered for transitioning to online.


“When I tell people that my child goes to a charter school, and they say, “what’s that?” I tell them that my child is getting a private school education for free…”
 Terrika Tarrance, Kindergarten parent at Classical Charter Schools of Wilmington
