Admissions Welcome

A warm welcome to our website! We are delighted that you are exploring Carolina Friends School through these words and photographs. Our hope is that you will continue your exploration by visiting our campus where you will find a school shaped by Quaker values, focused on our mission and inspired by our students. Please accept this invitation to take a tour: walk the paths that connect our students from early school through upper school, step into our classrooms while teachers and students are at work together, sense first-hand the unmistakable spirit of engagement and the joy of inquiry and discovery which distinguish Carolina Friends.

As you consider educational options, we acknowledge that finding the right school for your child is a very significant and highly meaningful decision. Children grow and change each year, encountering new experiences, stepping up to new obligations, and reaching new milestones. Recognizing this growth and being aware of these changes are essential considerations in school choice. Our collective responsibility, yours and ours, is to understand your child’s individual development, their needs and abilities in order to find the school setting where they can thrive academically, socially and emotionally. Through our admission process, we hope to join with you over the next few months in understanding what will best serve your child.

Please take a look at the admission links on this page to learn more about Carolina Friends School, our philosophy and program at all levels, our long-standing commitment to inclusivity, the application process and the affordability of a CFS education. Information about visiting, through an individual parent visit, group tours or our Open Houses are also included. You can also take a look at our viewbook for an overview. If you would like to know anything that you don’t find on our website or in our published materials, or if you just need more information, please don’t hesitate to let us know – we welcome all your questions throughout the application process.

Thank you for your interest in Carolina Friends and again, we extend to you our heartfelt invitation to visit with us. How we would welcome the opportunity to meet you and your child, along with the chance to share this wonderful community with you!
