Pine Lake Preparatory is a North Carolina charter school educating students in grades K-12. Founded in 2006, the school needed a website that could act as both a communications platform for current families and a marketing tool for prospective families. 

The school's new, custom website tells a compelling story, with photos of students engaged in athletics, arts, and academics, as well easy access to calendar events, recent news and important parent resources.

Quick Links

A grid of sliding boxes on the homepage provides parents with easy access to the most popular pages. Whether they are looking for information about PTO events, or simply need to see the lunch menu, current families don't need to scroll far to find it. 


Campus News & College Slider

A News panel on the homepage populates the latest news articles for prospective and current families to engage with. Pine Lake Prep also showcases where its graduates are going to college with an easy-to-update slider. It's a simple yet subtle way to both celebrate its students and show the value of a charter school education.


Drop-Down Menu

A drop-down navigation provides quick and easy to access to the Upper, Middle and Lower School pages as well as other key pages. The design features an image in the menu too. This extra customization spruces up the navigation and reminds visitors of what matters: smiling, happy children!


Individualized School Pages & Content

Each of the three schools has its own section of the website, where they can individually manage the navigation and content to reflect what is relevant to each school.  School-specific social media content and calendar events are also displayed on each homepage.

Using the Finalsite Directories module, the school features photos of each staff member, complete with a short bio, list of degrees achieved, and contact information.

What's more, the directory can be searched and filtered by school and by department.
