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


The Board of Trustees has the ultimate responsibility for the School. As an independent corporation, the Board holds title to the School's assets and sees that the School is adequately financed and appropriately run.

The Board sets broad policies about the School's purposes and operation, hires the Head of School, and delegates to her/him the authority to hire staff. The Head of School and staff develop the curriculum and manage the daily operation of the School.

The Board is composed of up to twenty-three members, drawn from each of the Friends Meetings in Durham and Chapel Hill as well as co-opted members appointed by the Board. Joe Marion serves as legal advisor.

Board organization includes seven standing committees: Advancement (includes staff and parents), Audit, Business, Governance, Investment, Quaker Spiritual Life, and Executive.

Board meetings are open meetings. They are generally held on the third Tuesday of every month during the academic year in the Upper School Meeting Hall or in other units of the School. Please check with the School Office to confirm location and times.

Look for Board members at school events - you'll recognize us wearing the same permanent nametags as staff. We're eager to meet members of the CFS community!
