“Thanks to my fours years at Salem Academy, I was more than adequately prepared for college. The rigorous academic curriculum set me ahead of my peers, making the transition into high-level college courses seamless. Beyond the classroom, Salem taught me how to forage my own path, choosing activities, leadership positions, and projects that aligned with my passions and drive. I learned how to collaborate productively, ask the right questions, build valuable connections, and overcome obstacles to achieve a goal.”

Charlotte Dorn was a student at Salem Academy from 2014-2018. She served as president of her class for three years and was a standout player for the Salem Sabers soccer team where she served as captain. She was a leader of the Academy’s award-winning Robotics Team, and she was a National Merit Scholarship finalist.
As a sophomore, Charlotte saw the need for a Salem Academy-branded web app and taught herself the programming needed to bring it to life. The app is both a source of utility and entertainment for the students; they can access schedules and key documents but also view cute animal photos that provide levity and laughter.
During her senior year, Charlotte was awarded the prestigious Morehead-Cain Scholarship for study at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
Charlotte graduated in May, 2023 from UNC-CH with a degree in Computer Science. She is currently working in New Zealand for Halter, a tech-led agricultural company as a Junior Research and Development Engineer.
