Thousands of Charlotte-area students are headed back to the classroom Wednesday morning, starting the 2013-14 academic year.
The biggest back-to-school migration will be Monday, the first day of classes for most public school students in North Carolina. But Wednesday marks the start of the academic year for several private schools and for two Charlotte-area counties in South Carolina.
In Mecklenburg County, classes begin this morning for the Mecklenburg Area Catholic Schools. Also starting are Charlotte Country Day, Hickory Grove Baptist Christian, Northside Christian, Charlotte Preparatory and Queens Grant Charter schools.
All four York County systems – Clover, Fort Mill, Rock Hill and York – also start Wednesday. So do students in Chesterfield County.
The school year began Tuesday for students at Charlotte Christian, Corvian Community School, Covenant Day (grades 8 and lower), Gaston Day, Providence Day and Trinity Episcopal.
