And just to clarify for other newcomers who are reading this and might be interested in Catholic schools in Charlotte - there are no Catholic schools in Pineville, though Catholic High is close to Pineville. There is only one elementary school in southern Mecklenburg - St. Matthews. There are 3 other elementary schools just south of uptown, one in east Charlotte and one in the north end of the county in Huntersville. Many newcomers are surprised to discover there are not a lot of Catholic schools here in Charlotte at all.
True, they probably are not in Pineville just close to Pineville. I didn't look into them as they were too far away as it was. Thanks Barb for the Palasades school, forgot about that one, waiting on a reply from them now.

I know south Charlotte seems far away to you now, but I can assure you lots of people travel further to get to the good schools in south Charlotte. I lived in Steele Creek when my youngest was in elementary school and we made the drive up to Providence Rd every day - it was just what we had to do to get the school we wanted for him and his brother. I had a portable tv in the back of the van and they watched cartoons for the duration of the drive Not for everyone, I know. But sometimes rethinking a situation and coming at it from another angle helps us to see what is and isn't possible. I just don't think you are going to find anything like you want in less than 25 minutes, sorry.

Very true. With more Catholics moving to the area, hopefully this will change. There are some Lutheran schools . . . longer tradition in area . . . but I don't think any of them would be closer than 35 or so minutes from Steele Creek. ???

This is why I have created this thread to see if there are any others in my area. I found one in Ft. Mill that is pricy, one in Steele Creek that doesn't have a website, and the two university model schools. I am looking to see if anyone else knows or has seen any in my area. We have a dvd in our suv, but when my toddler has had enough, there's no explaining to him to look at things from another angle, I'm sure you know how that goes.

Exactly. Steele Creek, while being rich in history, was practically the last side of the county to be developed (and is still being developed). So there really aren't many private school options in that area yet. It is also one of the last sides to get it's own hospital too.

HEE HEE HEE. Yep, we all know what you mean!!!!! When my youngest was about 1 1/2, he got hooked on a particular music tape/cassette. And so I would have to play that over and over - he would kind of try to sing along w/ it. I got sooooo sick of that tape, over and over and over . . . but hey - better than hearing him wail. Amazing what will soothe them and what won't. And how short the solution can last! LOL!!!!
