Mission & Values

We instill individual responsibility and a commitment to serve by respecting the diversity of others and valuing the relationships that unite us as a school community.


Piedmont Community Charter School is a free college preparatory K-12 school, where students receive a well-rounded education focused on academics, character and community. Piedmont has 201 employees and currently serves 1,883 students on three campuses. The new high school campus opened in August 2020. It will hold 600 students, which is 150 per grade level. Our students have exposure to a rich academic curriculum, diverse fine arts, competitive athletics and well- developed programs that celebrate and inspire excellent student achievement and character.

Piedmont is the 4th largest brick and mortar charter school in North Carolina. Our students scored in the top 20% in the state for exceeding academic growth. The Career and College Promise (CCP) program at Gaston College has a strong history with about 50% of juniors and seniors dually enrolled in a tuition-free college program. Piedmont provides every student in grades K-12 with a laptop. The Charlotte Business Journal researched the high schools in seven counties in the Charlotte area. They ranked Piedmont #24 out of 129 high schools based on ACT composite scores. Piedmont students practice leadership skills for tomorrow by serving their community today. State Superintendent, Mark Johnson, awarded Piedmont with a certificate for our high graduation rate of 97.4 for the 2019-2020 school year.
