In light of COVID-19 health directive clarifications now provided by the Mecklenburg County Public Health Department -- and adhering to our stringent pandemic safety protocols -- Central Piedmont will move some career and technical education classes back to on-campus, in-person delivery as of January 14. Check your student email for details.
Class sections that began the semester as online or hybrid will continue online until Feb. 2, at which time the college will provide further guidance. Students with questions about the mode of their classes – online or on-campus – should contact their instructors directly and check Blackboard.
Our full-service Cato Campus provides college transfer, College and Career Readiness, and Corporate and Continuing Education classes. The student population ranges from high school to adult learners and boasts many diverse backgrounds including non-native English speakers and career professionals. Cato Campus is also home to Cato Middle College High School (CMCHS), Charlotte-Mecklenburg School’s (CMS) first Middle College program.
