A Pre-K to Grade 12 Independent Quaker Day School Serving the Greater Durham-Chapel Hill Area

CFS Experience

We are a learning community, and each of us is responsible for bringing curiosity and openness with us every day.

We empower our students to make choices related to their own learning, to experiment, and to develop more fully the habits and skills necessary for lifelong learning. The Carolina Friends School experience encourages active engagement in a process of exploration that develops skills, values, and confidence. By focusing on the “whole child,” we bring equal attention to developmentally appropriate cognitive, creative, social, emotional, spiritual, and physical needs and opportunities.

I have found that it is not only the students who are honored but the heart, soul and intellect of each member of the community.It is a place of possibilities, where ideas can be shared, supported and brought to fruition. Sue Donaldson, former Head Teacher, Chapel Hill Early School
