Take it from an expert: these steps will help guide any family in their search for a school that will allow their child to thrive.
Carolina Friends School is a vibrant and inclusive learning community empowering students to think critically, creatively, and independently. We prepare students to be lifelong learners who think deeply and question the world around them.
We enroll over 500 students in our four developmentally designed units: Early School, Lower School, Middle School, and Upper School.
We encourage you to begin the admission process in the fall prior to your child’s year of entry to allow time to explore our program and campus and to provide you flexibility in completing the application requirements.
Help us get to know you through our inquiry form or by contacting 919-383-6602 x*221 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Questions and conversation are always welcome. We look forward to starting this journey together.
As part of our mission, we prioritize student safety. Our COVID-19 protocols include a multi-layered approach with enhanced ventilation, masking, distancing, hand washing, symptom screening, vaccinations, and isolation protocols for illness or exposure. We are following local, state, and national guidance as well as consultation from our own internal advisory group of public health and epidemiology experts. These combined strategies have proven very effective.
