Admission

We Look Forward to Meeting You

Let's get started.

At Carolina Day, we encourage, empower, and educate.

A Carolina Day School education prepares students for an ambitious, purpose-driven life, well past their time here on campus—for a future world with jobs, careers, and challenges that are being developed even as they learn. We know that how students learn is as important as what students learn.

We look forward to sharing all that is special about the Carolina Day community with you. Please reach out to any member of the team directly. Feel free to complete an inquiry form or application online. We look forward to assisting you!

To schedule your tour please contact the appropriate team member.
