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 TADS 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.

Since 1962

Diversity in our community has been a driving factor

84%

Even full tuition accounts for only 84% of educational costs
