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


At Carolina Friends School, we value all alumni, not just graduates, for the meaningful connections they provide across our history of over 50 years.

Our alumni community has built its own sets of traditions, and we provide opportunities, both on campus and across the U.S., for alumni to reconnect with each other and the School. Stay tuned to this space for updates, and be sure to update your contact information with us for invitations, announcements, and other ways to keep in touch!

Dance and Theatre

Through the years, dozens of former CFS students, stretching from the 1970s to the 2010s, have returned over winter break to offer alumni dance and/or theatre projects for our community.

Sports Events

Traditionally, each December a group of alumni come together to challenge current students to basketball games, volleyball matches, and ultimate frisbee competitions.


FriendsFest is an opportunity for the larger community to celebrate the amazing musical talents of our alumni and School community with a day of family fun and entertainment.

Regional and Local Gatherings

Throughout each year, smaller opportunities allow alumni to gather, in cities across the country as well as here locally.
