Cannon School, established in 1969 as Cabarrus Academy and renamed in 1998, originally occupied the Historic Concord residence of textile entrepreneur J.W. Cannon. In the decades since, Cannon School has become a preeminent Junior Kindergarten through twelfth grade college preparatory independent school, serving not only the families of Concord, but the greater Charlotte region as well.
In 1994, the School relocated to a 65-acre campus on Poplar Tent Road, one mile east of Interstate 85 – a major step toward regionalization and growth.
Today, under the leadership of Head of School Matthew E. Gossage, Cannon School serves more than 900 students, Junior Kindergarten through twelfth grade, primarily from the Concord, Davidson, Charlotte, Huntersville, Salisbury, Mooresville, and Lake Norman areas.
Established in 1969; today enrolls more than 900 students from seven counties in Junior Kindergarten through twelfth grade.
Located on a 65-acre campus near the Cabarrus and Mecklenburg County lines.
Recent additions include an enlarged Upper School building with a state of the art science lab, an arts wing featuring spacious and light-filled art studios, and enhanced sports facilities.
