Understanding that many of our families have work and other obligations beyond the traditional school day, Carolina Friends School offers Extended Day afternoon care options.
Extended Day at our Chapel Hill and Durham Early Schools provides students on those campuses with engaging activities and outdoor exploration after the end of the school day. Extended Day is one of the three schedules available to families in our Early Schools, as well as half day (pickup at 12:30 pm) and full day (pickup at 3:15 pm). Each family selects its preferred schedule during enrollment, and cost considerations for each schedule are factored into the range of Early School tuition.
Lower and Middle Schools
Extended Day (AfterHours) for our Lower to Middle School students is available on a drop-in or monthly basis. Monthly contracts can range from 2-5 days per week based on a family's needs. The Extended Day (AfterHours) Program is designed to create a safe space to do homework, enjoy a nutritious snack, and be inventors, artists, friends, teammates, quiet thinkers, explorers, and much more.
- The program is structured to provide a variety of activities that allow student choice and direction.
- In addition to our Lower and Middle School Extended Day teachers, students are supported by other Carolina Friends School staff and Upper School student assistants.
Middle and Upper School students are encouraged to participate in our inter-scholastic athletic program.
Extended Learning also offers a variety of after-school classes for Lower and Middle School students and music lessons for children and adults.
