About BAC


Welcome to Barringer Academic Center!

Barringer Academic Center is a unique school with four separate programs uniting an overall school.

The Academy program serves students in the historic West Charlotte neighborhood and is the attendance zone for BAC.  This is a K-5 program. Students in the Academy receive a rigorous instruction focused on meeting their specific needs. 

The Horizons program is for students who are highly gifted (at least 2 or more years above grade level) and go through an application process to enter the program.  This is a K-5 program with students receiving placement in the Randolph Middle School Horizons program.

The Talent Development (TD) program is for students who are identified as Academically and Intellectually Gifted.  These students are placed in an all day TD classroom where they receive accelerated and advanced curriculum from a gifted certified teacher.  This is a 3-5 program with students receiving placement in the Randolph Middle School or Piedmont Middle School IB program.

The Learning Immersion (LI) program is for students in grades K-2 who are seeking an accelerated curriculum that will prepare them ultimately for the 3-5 TD program.  There is no application process for this program, but students do need to be able to handle a rigorous pace as well as being above grade level in all subject areas.

At Barringer, we have a chapter of the National Elementary Honor Society, the first chapter in CMS, with approximately 50 students. Our Chess Club, Robotics Club, Math Olympiad, Odyssey of the Mind and Science Fair members are consistent winners locally, state wide and nationally. We have much to celebrate at Barringer! Come and get to know our school, and the wonderful teachers who enrich each child's learning experience.  We think you will be most impressed.
