Tuition & Affordability
Carolina Friends School has a long-standing commitment to the founding belief that every child is equally deserving of an inspiring and inclusive education.
Consistent with the values of our community, we have developed a tuition model designed to nurture the goal of creating both access and affordability in a sustainable way for our school.
Families who wish to be considered for a tuition level below the top of the tuition range need to submit their financial information for review and consideration to Clarity at the same time as submission of an enrollment application for admission. Adjusted tuition can then be calculated based on that family’s unique financial profile.
Clarity is providing the following information sessions for families via Zoom (follow the links provided):
2024-25 Tuition Range By Unit
Early School 8:15 am-12:30 pm: $790 - $15,710

(The above ranges represent the minimum family contribution based on adjusted tuition qualification up to the contribution with no adjustments.)
Our child is having a profoundly good experience in all areas, and shares that with us freely, frequently and without provocation. Our family could not be happier with Carolina Friends School. We're grateful for all the school does to make this experience such a significant positive in our lives. Upper School Parent
