Parent Association

The mission of Carolina Day School's Parent Association is to work to support and advance the mission of Carolina Day School. Parent Association recognizes the reciprocal relationship among students, their families, the school, and the community at large. Parents contribute to each of these constituencies by sharing their time, talents, resources, and knowledge.

Parent Association encourages communication, assists with fundraising, supports parent education programs, and provides volunteer support in many aspects of school life. Parent Association encourages every parent to become involved.

Parent Association meets monthly during the academic year September-May. A typical agenda includes updates from each division vice president, reports from committees with current activities or projects, and an update from the head of school. Attending Parent Association meetings is a great way to learn about CDS, meet other parents, and get involved.
