CDS Website Wins Gold Davey Award

The Gold level is the highest ranking honor in the contest, and no more than 10% of the entries achieve it. Carolina Day is among only five to receive the Gold standing in the schools and universities category. 

Beyond Words

We sometimes take for granted that language provides the critical key to understanding. But language—especially when taught in an enriched educational environment with experienced teachers—truly is a catalyst for gaining deeper knowledge about ourselves and the world. The direct positive effects of a culture-rich curriculum on academic excellence are proven. 

At CDS, there are many points of entry for our students to access this world of understanding.
