Carolina Day School does not employ a ‘one size fits all’ approach to learning. As an independent school, we have the flexibility to teach the students rather than "to the test." Every decision we make–from single-gender classrooms in Grades 6 and 7, to dress codes in Lower and Middle Schools, to multi-sensory language instruction and interdisciplinary learning–is made intentionally based upon research and data about how students learn best at each age.
Our customized and unique curriculum is designed by our teachers to engage students in inquiry, critical thinking, and collaboration. We integrate new techniques from professional development training, cutting-edge research, and lessons learned from our own experience in the classroom.
