Cannon School back to school information

Established in 1969, Cannon School is a junior-kindergarten through grade 12 independent college preparatory institution that attracts students from the greater Charlotte, Cabarrus County, Salisbury, Lake Norman and Davidson areas. This August, Cannon will welcome 995 students to its 65-acre campus located off Poplar Tent Road in Concord.

School starts Aug. 17, and daily hours are from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m.

While dress code varies by division, lower school students wear uniforms and middle and upper school students adhere to a dress code laid out in the school’s handbook.

Cannon School’s motto, “Go Beyond,” articulates our enduring pursuit of excellence and lifelong learning. Our students go beyond each day to stretch their comfort zones and exceed expectations, whether it is within the classroom, athletics or arts, or out helping other members of our community.

Students have the opportunity to gain a hands-on education through the rigorous academic curriculum and develop strong learning and interpersonal skills as a result of the 1:17 teacher-student ratio. Cannon School offers 18 Advanced Placement courses in its upper school, and has 13 athletic offerings for middle and upper school students.

Recent capital campaigns have allowed the school to add a brand-new, state-of-the-art performing arts center, a strength training and conditioning center, a turf field and field house, and an expanded dining hall. This summer, the school completed a middle school expansion that includes a new lab, which literally puts technology into the hands of students, engaging them to become creative problem solvers. By integrating circuitry, robotics, 3-D printers, multimedia, hardware, software and graphics, students are able to practice critical-thinking skills across a range of disciplines, and give them an outlet to explore how science, math, art and technology intersect.

To learn more about Cannon, visit campus. Stop by any Wednesday between 9 a.m. and noon. No appointment necessary. For more information, visit www.cannonschool.org or call 704-721-7199.
