We honor the dignity, worth and uniqueness of every member of our community, from the moment we first get to know you. 

There is nothing we look forward to more than helping you learn about our program and our community. We invite you to visit our campus, meet with a member of our Enrollment Team, or attend a Campus Close-Up (or all three!). 

We are eager to share with you the remarkable energy and engagement in our classrooms, our challenging and research-based curriculum, and the ways in which our students are uniquely prepared for the next stage in their educational and personal journeys – all the result of a Carolina Friends School education.

This is an excellent school that reaches out to each individual child's strengths, while supporting the development of character, commitment to social justice and the joy of learning and inquiry. Current Parent

Our group information sessions, Campus Close-Ups, are a valuable opportunity for families to learn about our pre-K to twelfth grade program and community. This year, we are offering both virtual and in-person Campus Close-Ups. You can choose the version that best meets your needs. Pre-registration is required.

Our virtual Close-Ups are hosted by current students and offer sessions with Head Teachers in each unit as wells sessions on curriculum and assessment; college counseling; and diversity, equity, and inclusion. You'll hear from Karen Cumberbatch, our Head of School, as well as current students and parents/guardians.

Our on-campus Close-Up provides all of the same opportunities as our virtual sessions, in addition to a chance to visit our dynamic classrooms, where you can experience learning in action. We invite Upper School applicants to join you, but all applicants for Early, Lower and Middle Schools will have an opportunity to visit campus as part of the application process which will provide a more appropriate and comfortable way for them to experience time in the classrooms with our teachers.
