Back to School for Current Families
July 26-30, we are sending a series of "Back to School" emails to Carolina Friends School parents/guardians for the coming school year. Be sure to tune in for this important information!
Among the ways our students explore their passions and sense of self, create community, and seek answers to big questions is the formation of clubs and identity groups.
These opportunities are student-driven and student-led, with guidance and support from staff mentors. Like all aspects of our educational program, students are encouraged to take on these leadership roles in ways that align with where they are in their development. In the Lower School, this might mean a group of children who gather during recess to write and produce a play. Beginning in Middle School, more formal clubs are proposed and advised. Our Upper School students regularly organize between 10-12 clubs and groups each year, many with a purpose toward social activism or advocacy.
