A great community of learners where faculty and students are driven and encouraged to learn. Faculty and Administration are always looking to build community within the school as well as expanding the community beyond the classroom. They engage students in strong academics to be ready for the next phases. They are equipped with strong academic foundations and how to be compassionate, effective citizens. And, students have fun while they learn in this loving community! My children are graduates. It was the best investment we ever made!

Carolina Day School is magical! The teachers know my child so well (and this bond formed very quickly). Just as an example when my child started in pre-k he was overwhelmed by the loud fire drills. So the teachers would conveniently pull him out of the classroom 5 minutes before a drill to prevent the stress of the fire drill. Beyond the sweet pre-k years, the academics are strong as well as the development of character. They care for the whole child. I'm continuously impressed with the teachers, the curriculum, and the dedication from everybody that works at Carolina Day!
I have had children at Carolina Day’s Lower School, Middle School, and now at the Upper School.

Both of my girls are consistently challenged and inspired. They have been supported as independent learners; there has been a strong focus on self advocacy and tenacity. Individually, in the classrooms, and as strong teams working within and across the divisions their teachers provide creative and exciting learning opportunities. The beautiful connections our daughters have made with students and with faculty have helped them to stretch and to become stronger students and community members.

Our girls are very involved in CDS athletics and extracurricular activities. Their incredible coaches and faculty leaders guide them in the growth that continues outside of the classroom.

Our family’s CDS experience has been and continues to be excellent.
